I have put “The Fables Of The Shah Of Blah” into cold storage for a while. The reason that I have done so, is not because I am abandoning him. No, it is because I like him a lot, and I want to construct the Fables well. I am working on something else, which you all may see every other week. This something else may / may not get published. However, it will be a sort of foundation stone for The Shah
In the meanwhile, Mihrank pointed out that Salman Rushdie had a character called The Shah Of Blah in his book, “Haroun & The Sea Of Stories”.
It is a marvellous book, however, I gently swore at Rushdie under my breath. Also, I don’t want his lawyers running after me. After all, I do come from a country of starving millions, and I do not wish to join those millions.
So, I thought of renaming The Shah of Blah, as The King Of Bling. I am sure Michelle Marie will not mind, neither will her other friends from The Kingdom Of Bling.
Question therefore is – how does The King of Bling sound? Or, do you have a better choice out there?
