Book review- The Shock Doctrine

Book review- The Shock Doctrine

Certain books outlive their prime years not only due to their authors’ brilliance (which in this case was never in doubt), but also due to the core issues they analyze and address. The Shock Doctrine, currently in its 10th year of publication since its release in September 2007, falls in that category. Although yet to […]






Book Review: The Golden Legend

Book Review: The Golden Legend

The master story-teller is back, weaving the usual magic with his words, writing a familiar yet brand-new tale of love in the times of bigotry and xenophobia.“ I wake up every day approaching life’s problems through fiction,“ says Nadeem Aslam.  Which explains the prose that soars even as it touches upon, examines, parses all the conflict life […]






Askew: A Short Biography Of Bangalore By TJS George

Askew: A Short Biography Of Bangalore By TJS George

It is neither compulsory nor mandatory but I feel the need to make this admission: I am not an outsider. Though not of Kannada origin, I have been a resident of Bangalore/Bengaluru since the start of the 80s. That’s been over three decades, during which I have lived, worked, married, learned the language, savoured the […]






Feminine Grace Under Fire

Feminine Grace Under Fire

    Lakshmi Kannan’s debut novel in English charts the life of two remarkable women, Kalyani, a child bride, and Vishalakshi, a young widow in pre-Independence Madras. Both the women display admirable grace under pressure and at some point, the story becomes a celebration of woman power. Kannan deftly highlights the various issues women had to face […]






Review: In the Jungles of the Night

Review: In the Jungles of the Night

  First a sort of disclaimer: I grew up on a steady diet of Corbett’s tales of the man-eaters he had encountered and bested; and later on, I grew to really like Stephen Alter’s accounts of life of men and mountains.   So this was a double delight for me: Stephen Alter in the voice […]






The Airport Reading List: The Last Mile

The Airport Reading List: The Last Mile

Over the last few  months, I have travelled far more frequently than usual and reconnected with reading in a consuming, famished way that had gone missing from my life since I started writing 21 years ago. I can either write or read because both are all or nothing experiences for me. But when you are […]






Postcards To Kalam

Postcards To Kalam

On July 27, 2015, the entire nation was shocked by the sudden demise of the revered Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam. ‘Dear Kalam Sir’ is a tribute to him, based on a concept that LetterFarms,  a Kochi-based NGO hit upon. They ideated an art project, inviting people to write postcards expressing their sentiments about the […]






The Return of Magic

The Return of Magic

  As the breathless blurbs go: he’s back! After 19 years! And so are Ron and Hermione! And Hagrid, Snape, Cedric Diggory and Dumbledore, (don’t ask), Moaning Myrtle and oh, quite a few of the Hogwarts lot we have come to know and like. It’s a new adventure, it contains all the requisite dangers, and never mind that […]






No Second Thoughts

No Second Thoughts

  Second Lives is written by Anish Sarkar who debuted with Benaami, a historical thriller in the year 2010. The title aptly echoes the importance of life that most of us take for granted until it slips out of our hands in a moment. What comes to me after reading the book is a quote […]






The Trap: A Literary Crime Novel

The Trap: A Literary Crime Novel

‘How do you cope with being housebound?’ he asks. ‘The world is suddenly very small. There are many things that don’t exist in my world: other people’s brightly lit living rooms, tourists asking the way, clothes wet from rain, stolen bikes, dropped ice-cream cones melting on hot asphalt, maypoles. Disputes over parking spaces, meadows of […]






Eligible: A Biased Review

Eligible: A Biased Review

Eligible is American author Curtis Sittenfeld’s re-telling of that much loved classic Pride and Prejudice. To take on a work, any work of Jane Austen (even when commissioned to do so, as part of the Austen Project) is one brave thing to do, and inevitably, for every two people who liked Eligible, four others howled “Sacrilege!” Sittenfeld has said, “ I […]






A Peek Into The Dark Side of Light
