Mills and Boon, the popular series of books for both women and teenagers is getting ready with its desi or Indian version. A Mills and Boon book is sold all over the world once in four seconds because that is the kind of passion that women have for romance. M&B books will also become more progressive with tales of heroines and their struggles. Readers are however not very sure whether the book penned by Indian authors will be as interesting.
To tap talent in India, the publication has launched a short story writing competition. Authors will be chosen from among those who enter this competition and show their potential to write. Some girls feel that the Indian attitude towards girls and women in general is not very positive so they hope that this will not dull the books. Indian readers are apprehensive about having an Indian author for their favourite brand of books.
