Color me Rich is a sensitive love story of a handsome and talented struggling painter Akash Saigal. What happens when he marries an extremely rich and beautiful artist and art investor Zenobia Taraporevala?
Mohan Deep, is an Indian author, painter and Feng Shui Master. Mohan Deep is the author of â€˜The Mystery and Mystique of Madhubalaâ€™ (1996), â€˜Itâ€™s My Lifeâ€™ (Novel) (1997), â€˜Simply Scandalous: Meena Kumariâ€™ (1998), â€˜Eurekha!â€™ â€“ an unauthorized biography of Rekha.

After a sabbatical of a decade, during which he touched upon the lives of people as a Feng Shui Master, he came back with The Five Foolish Virgins, a book of fiction, launched in April 2013. Mohan Deep is arguably the only Indian author to write what is often described as controversial, unauthorized star biographies in India. Columnist-journalist and former editor of 'Illustrated Weekly of India', Khushwant Singh called him 'a truly gifted gossip writer'. â€œThe maverick writerâ€, like columnist-reviewer-poetess Tara Patel described him has also been called William Goldman of Bollywoodâ€™s stars (By Behram Contractor, the Editor of Afternoon Despatch & Courier) Kitty Kelly of India (By R K Bajaj, the Editor of â€˜The Dailyâ€™).

This was followed by an interactive session with The Booknerds.
The Google Hangout session was followed by Rubikâ€™s Cube Contest which was won convincingly by Anamitra Goswami and was awarded a copy of Color Me Rich by Co-founder Neha Raj.
The hangout concluded with some candid chit chat over some coffee.
The Booknerds voted for To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee as the next title.
