We are like chalk and cheese, Lakshmi and I. She likes alone time while I talk to fill every second. I am a non-vegetarian while she doesn’t touch meat. I like to eat out while her idea of perfection is to tuck into home-cooked food. 
I was 27, my parents were asking me to settle down and I told them I’d marry the first girl they introduced me to. The first girl I met was seeing someone else though and asked me to say no. The second girl I met was Lakshmi.
The first time we met, I let her speak. In those thirty minutes, I decided she was the one. That was 21 years ago.
Lakshmi had lost her father when she was very young and had grown up as a single child living with her mother. Mine was a big joint family. I was finding it difficult to adjust with a person who spoke in monosyllables. But finally we just fit in like pieces in a puzzle. 
We’ve always been vagabonds, moving from one place to another. When we got back from Singapore, we moved to Bangalore and I started playing golf. Lakshmi told me not to waste my time and start a bookstore in our house which was vacant. It had been her dream. And so, that is what we did. 
In 2011, we started working on the idea. We wanted it to be a cultural hub, not just a bookstore. When we opened on April 1st, people thought it was a joke! Why would anyone open a bookstore in the digital era? We decided we’d take the risk. That was how Atta Galatta began.
In the last seven years, we have hosted over 2000 events and each one has been a memory. We have seen events where the author did not show up, another where the audience did not show up, and even one where the power did not show up! We did a poetry reading in the candle light! 
Lakshmi has always been a source of support for my startup journeys so when she wanted to build a #bookstore, I said yes. A relationship is not about being content in each other’s successes, but instead being actually involved in each other’s lives.
