Forgotten Hindi Authors.

Tristan Foster interviews translator Saudamini Deo for Asymptote about a new series of books; here’s the introduction: An unfortunate reality is that every language has great writers who have faded from the collective memory; either they fell out of favour, or their writing spoke only to their time, or perhaps they practiced on the margins, and their work never made it beyond a small readership. Difficulties in categorising a writer’s work is especially likely to put them in peril—writing that d...

Planned Museum Near Taj Mahal Will Now Ignore Muslim Dynasty That Built It

“The museum was meant to showcase the arms, art and fashion of the Mughals, Muslim rulers who reigned over [much of] the Indian subcontinent from the 16th to the 18th centuries. But officials this week in Agra, home to the Taj Mahal — the world’s most famous example of Mughal-era architecture and India’s best-known building — had another idea: a complete overhaul of the museum so that it would instead celebrate India’s Hindu majority, leaders and history.” – The New York Times

16 best Indian food restaurants in the San Fernando Valley for takeout, delivery

Uber Eats recently released its updated list of the most requested dishes across America. French fries continue to hold the top spot — and have since the first list was revealed. But not far behind are garlic naan and chicken tikka masala, with chicken tikka masala coming in at the top here in California. Not tacos. Not sushi. Not Chinese chicken salad. Chicken tikka masala. Indian food reigns when it comes to our takeout. One great irony is that the much-loved Indian dish…is little-known in Ind...

The Ultimate Guide to India’s Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is a popular tourist circuit in Northern India.  In fact, it’s the most popular part of the country for visitors. It encompasses the triangular region between New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, with every city located around 125 miles from the others.  These days, the Golden Triangle receives a bit of a mixed write-up and before I touched down in Delhi, I was fully expecting to be disappointed by my week there.  I’m not a fan of tourist-filled destinations, and I’d read plenty of a...
