Conversation with Simeen Desai from My Last Love Story.
Introduce yourself to our readers.
Hello! I’m Simeen Desai née Batliwala but I’m mostly known as Simi. I’m from Surat, India, but I now live with my husband in California. We’ve recently moved to Carmel-by-the-Sea from LA to indulge my husband, Nirvaan. He’s terminal, you see, and its part of his bucket list.
That’s a…difficult situation to be in. Are you up to this game then?
Simi: Yes, of course.
So, it’ll go like this. I’ll ask five random questions and you answer them as truthfully as you can. Okay?
First question: Who would you like to trade places with for one month?
Simi: Marie Antoinette. I’ve been reading a book about her and I want to know if she was as frivolous as historians make her out to be.
Have you ever had an experience that led you to believe in angels or ghosts?
Simi: Yes. I believe my parents are angels and they look after me from heaven. I believe Nirvaan when he tells me that I shouldn’t fear his dying as he’s going to come back and haunt me forever. I’m looking forward to it.
If you could have any view from your back porch, what would it be?
Simi: I have it already. I have Carmel Beach rolled out in front of me. My inner beach bunny is very happy that Nirvaan decided to move here.
Who’s the funniest person alive?
Simi: My brother’s best friend, Zeus. He’s a big grizzly bear of a bawaji and he absolutely cracks me up even while saying the most innocuous things.
Which of your features would you like to change?
Simi: My insult of a large nose. It’s too big for my face and bumpy.
That’s it, Simi. You did good! I’m sure our
At once heartbreaking, delightful and completely unexpected. A must read!
