    Professor Sen’s story is very impressive. I can’t image that such a great thinker could pass on his great ideas in such a lovely way. His wishes are his concerns about his country and the whole world. I am sure the audiences would be impressed a lot. We need such great masters as Professor Sen, who loves his country, wants to make it a better place and would like to enlighten children to get start to think about these big questions.

    Julie: Excellent writing. Excellent descriptiveness. Excellent discretion. I didnt want to about the lingam ajingam thing.

    “I fell in love with at least a hundred handsome, moustached men in Rajasthan.” Mr. Singh was the most excellent … and as you said he was an accomplished camel driver and polo stick handler .. Camel Polo. What about the terrific motorcycle ride you took with that lad from America … .

    Such good writing … and I am delighted to read more about your adventures.

    All I can say is, never having read the works of Ruskin bond myself, this re-working makes me want to read him as soon as i can. Great work Prerna.

      Bond’s work will take you on the most beautiful journeys. You’re in for a delightful time!

    It is very reminiscent of Bond, however it is almost as if he decided to accept that “there are people with cellphones in his memory palace of dehra”. A refreshing read. Very much Bond.

    Very engrossing story and contemporary too. You have described the feelings of the girl very well. I could empathize with the character and that is what makes you a good story teller. Keep it up.

    The countdown to my first visit to the Jaipur Literature Festival has already begun and Shrabani Basu’s blog sets the scene for what to expect when I arrive at this literary extravaganza. Finally a chance to come face to face with our favourite writers and the best of minds in an informal space and not to forget the endless cups of tea from khullar over animated discussions. I know this will be an experience to savour and make me want to come back for more!

    Good to have a book on ( Indian ) parenting !! Moreover initiatives to run workshops for parents are required .
    Learning /adopting better practices requires a few ( at least 3-4 sessions ) for it to sink in.
    Being a parent and a “learning and development” corporate professional I feel this area needs a great deal of attention. Professionals undergo training/ learning sessions to be better managers/ leaders. Even more important is to know how to raise your child/ children – to be ready to face the world

    Sexual revolution has started long way back when these powerful women authors started expressing their views . Looking forward to see some of the great personalities at JLF.

    From the discussion it appeared as if first we make theories than try to selective put the events to fit in to prove those theories by hook or crook.
    My question to
    1, Syed salman Chisty: if we are open to listen within and outside, why the discussion on Koran or other Muslim symbol is considered as taboo.? Sufism may be open to accommodate all, but threadbare discussion on Koran and other Islamic symbols is and will remain taboo.
    2. Shashi Tharoor: why your every question was deep fried in the party specific political angle instead of being with critical analysis of the issue in hand?
    3. P. sivakami: You proved existence of categorization and compartmentalization of society related to problems of city life by citing example of villages. Why could not you see that problem of villages are far different than that of the city and government functioning? To begin with try to analyse two problems separately and you will find that caste based issues of villages and organised government institutes of cities are far different.

    I have read the earlier books of Atul Gawande, I got to use his book on the CHECKLISTS actually in the work. I am sure of this book will be relevant to all the readers, and for the medical profession!

    Prerna, I must say, it’s technically a post modern and thus very well written story. Kudos

    During reading a book Delhi written by Late Sh. Khushwant singh. just struck in my mind….dis is a male account of the hijra life…what about a hijra writing his own story…. And I found dis….great. I would luv to read d book.

    brilliantly said … im in total agreement ,
    its an amorphous indefinable transient yet tangible idea sustained despite religion caste inequity disparity color etc .. it is pride in an identity not attached to all of the above yet anchored intrinsically to all of the above
