I guess first I'd figure out how much I had in good old American money. Then I'd start with a cell phone that doesn't cut people off for no reason at all. Oh, and more rechargable batteries.

It's roughly double the amount in USD, so $100,000.

Personally I'd clear my outstanding student debts and then go to Sweden for a holiday... After that, I'd probably find somewhere else to live that's not a tiny book-filled attic !

Travel, travel, travel!

A big congrats to Kiran.

And to tie it all back into children's books, her debut novel, Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard, is very appropriate for older teens. It has a magical-realist quality about it that readers will appreciate. (In fact, several of Anita Desai's [Kiran's mother and three-time Booker Prize nominee] books are suitable for teens as well: Fasting, Feasting and The Village by the Sea.)

Take my mom on a fabulous holiday or two or three -- especially if I inherited my talent from her.
