‘The Adivasis of India have been subjected to systematic oppression for centuries and postcolonial India continues with the same processes by different means. Hansda Sowvendra Sekhar’s short story, “The Adivasi Will Not Dance” explores the subalternization of such communities as well as the evolution of subaltern consciousness, as manifested by the protagonist of the text, Mangal Murmu, whose monologue constitutes the narrative.’

‘“I’m a romantic at heart. I have lived a life which is a bit like escaping from ugly realities, not because I like people less but because I like the mystery of wild animals more!”’ Click here to read an excerpt from the interview of Jonathan Scott, author of The Big Cat Man with Indian Express.

Reviews

‘Never judge a book by its cover, but in the case of The Sun and Two Seas this might be misplaced. If you find yourself purchasing the book for the sheer beauty of its cover illustration you would have made a wise decision. The writing and the story within these covers is of epic proportions and leaves you wanting a sequel, a prequel or a spin-off!’ Book review of The Sun and Two Seas by Vikramajit Ram.

‘The book is entertaining and rich, highlighting the fact that English has never stood still — one of the latest words dates to 1954. But then, that would apply to an Indian language like Bengali as well. Languages have the freedom to reach out and borrow and then reinvent themselves all over again. In the process is a kind of shape-shifting that Shakespeare would have appreciated if it had been pointed out to him.’
Book review of ‘May we Borrow your Language?’ by Philip Gooden.

‘One Thousand Days in a Refrigerator is a collection of fourteen short stories originally written in Odia, and translated into English by Snehaprava Das. Translation, we are all aware, is an extremely difficult and challenging enterprise. And yet we see translators like Das (or say, Arunava Sinha from West Bengal) boldly take the risk of offering us an ‘authentic’ taste of vernacular literature. ‘
Book review of One Thousand Days in a Refrigerator by Manoj Kumar Panda, translated by Snehaprava Das.
