Mohammad Aamir Khan in converstaion with Sachin Garg

Framed As a Terrorist is the harrowing and heart-rending narrative of an ordinary young Indian man, from the by-lanes of Old Delhi, who was kidnapped by the police, falsely accused of being a terrorist, framed and kept in jail for almost fourteen years.

Released after a long and incredibly difficult legal battle, after surviving torture and solitary confinement, Mohammad Aamir Khan remains committed to the secular and democratic values that he grew up with. He refuses to be defeated, or to give up any of the dreams he has for himself, his family and the country that nearly destroyed him.

A lifetime is not enough to understand the human mind. Any time we think we have understood its complexities, it throws another surprise, reminding us of our limited capacities. And what if that mind is ‘different’ and suffers from a mental condition? Anupama Raju, author of Nine: Poems, in conversation with Jerry Pinto on A Book of Light.

Speaking Tiger’s Managing Editor Anurag Basnet tells Swati Daftuar, The Hindu, about ‘The Ruskin Bond Selections’—A new series by Speaking Tiger.

The thirty-five men and women lying dead before me were each shot with a single bullet that made a muffled ‘pop’ as it passed through their heads. Only minutes earlier we were fellow passengers on the Kabul to Kandahar bus that was stopped near Ghazni by anti-Soviet mujahidin. The Citizen carries an excerpt from Shyam Bhatia’s Bullets & Bylines: From the Frontiers of Kabul, Delhi, Damascus and Beyond


A Book of Light touches the heart, even as it inverts the world we inhabit. As I read it, I realise how much I don’t know, and how those who have a different mind illuminate lives… Book review of A Book of Light by Jerry Pinto.

”The Book of Light’ is not something we would read for pleasure. But it is a book we must all read.’ ‪Book review‬ of The Book of Light by Jerry Pinto

‘Author Jerry Pinto has put together a book which comprises narratives of ordinary people who live with ‘disturbed’ human beings. These may be of use to those who still face such traumas.’ Book review‬ of The book of Light by Jerry Pinto (ed.)
