Speaking Tiger News

“I used to be rather intense as a young man. As I get older, life seems to get funnier. You also get more philosophical when you look back, you are prepared to be more forgiving,”’
One of India’s favourite authors, Ruskin Bond, on the company of undemanding ghosts, his obsession with semi-colons and why he ought to have named his recently-released autobiography, ‘Twenty-Two Steps’.

‘It can be reasonably argued that in India, from the beginning of its civilisational enterprise, nothing has remained singular for long; in fact, nothing has been, in a sense, allowed to be singular for long. Whether God or religion, philosophy or metaphysics, language or custom, cuisine or costume, every realm is marked by plurality. It is not accidental that in many Western languages the word India is plural—‘Indes’, meaning ‘Indias’.’ Indian Cultural Forum carries an excerpt from India Dissents: 3000 Years of Difference, Doubt and Argument edited by Ashok Vajpeyi.

‘Sitting in the mountains, I remember the sea: tinsel on a vast field of water, and sunny white sheets billowing in the wind.

I remember a forest of nodding flowers and patches of red, yellow, green and blue light on a wall.

And I remember a little boy who ate a lot of kofta curry and was used to having his way.’

The Sunday Guardian carries an excerpt from Lone Fox Dancing: My Autobiography by Ruskin Bond.

Reviews

‘The book weaves a beautiful relationship about a dog and her people. Gillian brings Mishti (and her daughter Soni) alive, endearing us to this remarkable little golden Labrador.’ Book review of Misthi, the Mirzapuri Labrador by Gillian Wright.

‘Invoking a sense of timelessness upon the reader, Son of the Thundercloud is essentially a book about feelings and emotions rather than thinking. With disarmingly simple language and inherent honesty, Kire gently holds the reader’s attention to bring home the message that love and life are eternal. The novel reminds us that we can always choose love over fear, hope over disbelief and to believe in what’s miraculous rather than what is merely plausible. Book review of Son of the Thundercloud by Easterine Kire.

‘Half-Open Windows reads people you wouldn’t ordinarily want to read. There are corporate giants, hypocritical house husbands, overstressed students of architecture a la Peter Keating, and what’s more, the weather’s not that great. It’s humid outside, it might just rain, any moment, and you’re reading about Mumbai, which is not over there, the way New York is, or even Singapore. Mumbai, which is right here, is being read. Would you ordinarily want to read it?’ Book review of Half-Open Windows by Ganesh Matkari, translated from the Marathi by Jerry Pinto.
