My Book is the Beauty Bible: Dr. Jamuna Pai
In a quick chat, celebrity cosmetologist Dr Jamuna Pai tells us about her book 'No One Has To Know' that will be released next week.
One of the senior celebrity cosmetologists in the country, Dr Jamuna Pai, marks her debut as an author with the upcoming launch of 'No One Has To Know'. The book has testimonials from some of her clients including Arjun Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Malaika Arora Khan, Gauri Khan, Poonam Mahajan, Rocky S, Vikram Phadnis, Mandira Bedi, Sonu Nigam, Sonia Razdan Bhatt, Rita Dhody, Vikram Phadnis and Terence Lewis.

The expenses will be borne by her.
Excerpts from the interview:
More than two decades in the business of beauty - what was the journey like? It was a beautiful, though not easy. The journey of treading on an un-trodden path of aesthetics, by a doctor, was hard. There was no one before me in this field, in India. I had learned abroad and had to make protocols to suit Indian skin when India was not even open to basic beauty.
Why the title - 'no one has to know'? What inspired this title? I believe in implementing small changes in life on a regular basis to bring about a long term changes in your life. Nothing has to be too drastic or overnight. Same is with my treatments and procedures. One can look a better version of oneself, fresher and rested after our treatments as I believe in the 'less is more' mantra. Hence the title No One Has To Know'.
This is your first book - what inspired you to write? And also, what took you so long to do a book - there are many dermatologists with far less experience, who have come up with books... Though the book was being put together in my mind, I waited long enough to gather experience to enable me to feel like an expert who can advice others on Indian skincare regime.
Tell us about your experience in writing this book... Between attending clients, to my international conferences, to the TV shows, to grooming the contestants of Miss India pageant, as well as other international pageants, it was sheer time management to devote time to write this book. I would talk into the dictaphone, write notes in between travels, to keep up to the deadlines. I had to write everything that I have learned over the years from life and from my clients. Looking back at it, it has been a wonderful experience, which again taught me many more things. And the book has turned out to be a 'beauty bible', I kept it very simple so that everyone can refer to it as a handbook for beauty.
