Ohm Shanthi Oshaana with Samantha Kannan

Samantha Kannan joined me for a discussion about her new book, A New Journey, just released July 1, 2020. We also fangirl together over our love of Nivin Pauly playing Giri in one of my all time favorite films, Ohm Shanthi Oshaana.

Samantha’s book is a fictionalized account of the few months she spent teaching at a village school in Kerala, India. Samantha sent me an advance copy, and I found the book delightful. Due to COVID-19, my own trip to Kerala this fall has been delayed at least a year. This book was the closest thing to actually visiting. She vividly describes the hospitality of the people, the food and all her adventures. The principal of the school wrote the foreword for the book. Samantha has reasonably priced the book on Amazon in the US and in India.

We talked just before the book was published, and in its first days it became a best seller in travel books on Amazon!

I hope you enjoy our discussion of A New Journey and our favorite Ohm Shanthi Oshaana!

    I know Samantha from Quora, so this was really exciting for me. Can’t wait to see the movie.
