I am happy to announce the release of the Kindle electronic version of the Edwina Violette biography. It is available in Amazon sites all over the world. Amazon allowed a minimum price of $1.99. For other sites they calculated the price. For example in India it is Rs 133.
No text was changed but I made a few enhancements. The photos are in color. I have included her images from her films. Lastly, there are clickable links that take you the YouTube site for her songs, mainly uploaded by Tom Daniel.
A Hindi version is in preparation.
Here are the links for US and India.

I found that while the Image 20 is listed in the Illustration Index, it is not in the book. The caption is "Wedding of Smarari Dhruv (mid-60s, Santa Cruz). Smarari was a young neighbor of Indurani. From left: Nagma, Hashmat, bride, groom, Indu, Dilshad. In front, behind the small girl in white dress is Ratan"
