T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan reveals the trick to writing a successful book.   Three years ago, after I had finished extolling the virtues of those who write in newspapers, a particularly irritable, acerbic, and permanently discontented but very dear friend challenged me to write a novel and/or short stories.
