Think you know everything about flying? Think again. You do not. And now there’s a book which says just that.

Om Books International along with The Junction, launched author Vinamra Longani’s Welcome On Board, at a book launch function in Delhi at the hands of the renowned Bollywood director, Shakun Batra along with Khalid Mohamed, film critic, film maker and author, and Nicolas Idier, Cultural Attache, Books, Embassy of France in India. The launch was followed by an interesting discussion on the book by author Vinamra Longani, Shakun Batra and Editor, Aparna Kumar.

Vinamra Longani’s Welcome On Board is saucy, raunchy, free-spirited, revealing, heartfelt, cheeky and downright entertaining narration, and it isn’t the latest Bollywood potboiler yet! It’s the journey of an international flight attendant over the last 12 years, and turns out it’s not an ordinary one at that. This hilarious collection of experiences swings between a vision of goodness and your worst nightmare, depending on the circumstances, the mood of the flight attendant, the cabin you are flying in, and if you are cute or not. Be it dealing with difficult people on the plane or doomed relationships on the ground, quickies in the air or infidelity off the ground, Vinamra’s book is  an uncensored insight into his colourful life. The book also comes with a statutory warning to fasten your seat belts, and follow the instructions before take-off!

Says Vinamra Longani, Author: “This book will give you an unprecedented insight into the glamorous, jet-setting lifestyle of an international flight attendant and how sometimes life at 33,000 ft is not always as fancy as it sounds.”

Umang Tiwari, Proprietor, The Junction says: “Our basic aim has always been to promote art and culture. This book launch was the perfect opportunity to exhibit the amalgamation of atmospherics with literature.”

The book is published by Om Books International
