I.S. Johar turned a paean to Mahatma Gandhi and other national heroes into a critique of the Indira Gandhi government
From dissent to dissent, I.S. Johar turns a paean to Congress into a critique of the party, and the song finally reaches where it started from.

"Turmeric, coriander, methi.
Avinash’s hand was still stroking her forehead. Her nails dug into her palms as she tried to stop herself from swatting his hand away like a fly, a fly on a rotting ripe banana. Flies, yes, flies buzzing around her head.
Turmeric, coriander, methi.
Her mother in the kitchen…
Her father reading the newspaper…
Old Sushila chopping the fish…
Turmeric, dhoney, methi…
Holud, dhoney, methi…"

An excerpt from Sandip Roy's excellent book Don't Let Him Know.
Sandip Roy writes about longing, the feeling of not belonging and how familiar smells of spices save Romola from sinking. Excerpted from Don't Let Him Know

There is free play of what we call in the modern sense surrealism and fantasy in The Mahabharata. Today’s Marathi writer has absolutely no need to borrow such techniques as surrealism or fantasy from Western literature or from writers like Kafka. He can internalize such techniques from The Mahabharata. But Nemade doesn’t pay any attention to surrealism at all in all his essay and is contemptuous of fantasy. Which means that Nemade completely ignores such things which are, in fact, germane to the Indian tradition and the Indian imagination, and propagates, on the other hand, the western concept of Realism.
The renowned modernist author, who wrote in both Marathi and English, passed away this week.

Lesson: Constantly googling your love interest’s interests is the perfect way to show love. Failing to google is a symptom. A symptom of what?—that’s hardly important. #ShortStory  
In a world short on attention, giving it to another person is a crucial signifier of love. Tanuj Solanki's story in an intense dicussion on Frances Ha.

One of the colors that the blind—or at least this blind man—do not see is black: #Borges on Blindness (via +Antiserious )
Contrary to popular belief, the world of the blind is not black. The struggle is actually against the other colours. A blue can be green, green can be blue.
