Author Carlo Pizzati recently launched his book 'Bending Over Backwards' that was published by Roli Books at Title Waves in Bandra. The book was unveiled by actor Kabir Bedi who stated that he enjoyed every bit of this humorous travelogue which revolves around the narrator's journey to find a cure for his backache. 

Talking about his experience in the city, Pizzati said, 

"Mumbai to me is a mixture of some of my favourite cities in the world - New York, Naples and Rio de Janeiro. I'm almost distracted by its charms whenever I come here. The best part about the city and the state as a whole is its beaches. Its a delight to stroll on the beaches especially the Bandra beach."

In this intrepid and humorous travelogue, Carlo Pizzati embarks on a quest to find a cure for a backache that has tortured him for twenty years. Armed with his notebook and an indomitable spirit of adventure, Carlo travels from a posturologist's office in northern Italy to the rarefied mountain air of Boulder to seek a variety of New Age alternative cures; from a trance-dance venue hidden near the woods of Cinque Terre to an exorcist-shaman's den near Buenos Aires, who photographs demons and auras. Eventually, Carlo fetches up in India, to live and learn from the yogis at the Ashtanga yoga centre in Mysore.

In India, as Carlo engages in strenuous yogic discipline, meditates atop hills, he has an explosive insight into his past births which leads to an encounter that will change his life forever. Along the way, the sceptical, suffering but always curious narrator discovers the ways in which spirituality and technology intersect. Wry, witty and wise by turns, this book is about self-discovery, facing fears and failures, and undertaking an arduous journey with an open mind and heart.
