April 4, 2012 - New Delhi, Delhi, India

Rupa Publications is delighted to announce the launch of Horn OK Please: Hopping to Conclusions, the first title in author Kartik Iyengar’s five-book series. Horn Ok Please: Hopping to Conclusions, has enthralled readers with its dollops of irreverent humor, and quirky narrative style, replete with vignettes of his cross-country adventures with friends.

The bestseller is scheduled to be followed by four more titles in the Horn OK Please series:

Horn OK Please —The Scrotum Scrolls;
Horn OK Please — Pobody’s Nerfect;
Horn OK Please— 69 Palms;
Horn OK Please —Supernova.

Alongside Rupa Publications’ marketing and distribution muscle, the sales for this book, and the rest in the series, will also be driven by social-media and online sales.

Praise for Horn OK Please: Hopping to Conclusions:

‘Driving across India, treating those they meet in a straightforward way, Kartik Iyengar and Rohit Tiwari’s natural openness and humorous attitude have created a positive atmosphere of friendship and cooperation. May this book of their trip be a great success.’The Dalai Lama

‘In this very enjoyable book, you get to see the underbelly of India, its funniest moments and its unique ethos.’The Times of India

The first book in the series follows compulsive road hogs, Chief Redbull, Goose Goldsmith and Derek Demonia, as they navigate through a kaleidoscopic India in their beloved SUV, ‘Motormouth’. The daredevils embark on a full Monty, cross-country road trip that forever alters their perception about India and Indians.

The subsequent titles in the Horn OK Please franchise will transport the readers to a variety of landscapes: from the extraterrestrial zone of aliens, the palaces of Rajasthan, and the jungles of the North-East, to the ghettos of South-East Asia.

The series promises to be a rollicking adventure, set to capture the imagination of a whole new generation of readers.
