Salman Rushdie: India Is No Longer The Country I Wrote About In ‘Midnight’s Children’

“When I wrote this book I could associate big-nosed Saleem with the elephant-trunked god Ganesh, the patron deity of literature, among other things, and that felt perfectly easy and natural even though Saleem was not a Hindu. All of India belonged to all of us, or so I deeply believed. And still believe, even though the rise of a brutal sectarianism believes otherwise. … Right now, in India, it’s midnight again.” – The Guardian

Chinchani & India’s First Arab Governor

On the 28th of June 1955, The Times of India (Mumbai) carried a very interesting story of the discovery, by a farmer, of 9 inscribed copper plates from his field in the village of Chinchani near Dahanu, in the Palghar district of Maharashtra. Little did he know that what he had ‘dug’ up was a peep into the history of the region, stretching back over 900 years – a time when the area was under the Rashtrakutas and their Arab governor, who oversaw the region.

Kamala Harris’ candidacy gives Tamil Americans a moment in the spotlight

During her speech accepting the vice presidential nomination, Kamala Devi Harris uttered one word in Tamil. “Family is my uncles, my aunts — my chitthis,” she said.

Both women, she said, have been sources of strength and support, particularly after her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, a breast cancer researcher, died of colon cancer in 2009. Within seconds, social media was on fire. Harris’ mixed Jamaican and Indian heritage is ...

Mit diesen Songs von Never Have I Ever fühlst du dich wieder wie ein Teenie

Achtung: Der Artikel enthält kleine Spoiler zur Netflix-Serie Never Have I Ever (Noch nie in meinem Leben). Klischeemäßig werden Nerds in Filmen und Serien immer als sehr schüchterne, aber extrem schlaue Außenseiter dargestellt. Im Handlungsverlauf lernen wir sie dann schätzen und merken, das sie überraschend liebenswert sind – und manchmal lustig, hilfsbereit oder auch hoffnungslos romantisch. Etwas, das allerdings so gut wie nie mit den Geeks in Verbindung gebracht wird, ist sexuelles Verlange...

How to spot a bachelor pad?

Day 39 of the lockdown. Day 45 otherwise. You know what this lockdown's doing to me? Making me take note of tiny little things that I have chosen to live with. And yet never realized that I was living with them. You know those things that are all around you. Visible. In plain sight. And you've been ignoring those.  Of course, most of these things are things that have no inherent meaning but once they get added to your life, they start becoming valuable. And with time the value starts to gr...

A stranger's generous, unexpected remarks helped me deal with bereavement

A woman approached me after my choir’s Christmas concert in Trafalgar Square … What she said gave me what I needed to move onFor me, Christmas was always complicated. As a child, it was joyful, yet tinged with something bittersweet. On the one hand, there was my Scottish mother, who went all-out for tradition. She eagerly collected festive ornaments and planned menus from her beloved Supercook magazines. She would take us to the Walrus and the Carpenter, a traditional toy store on Sauchiehall St...

Figuring Out the 2020 Candidates by Counting Words

Back in 2004 Pete Buttigieg, his Harvard Colleague, Ganesh Sitaraman, along with Peter Emerson wrote an intriguing, fun article suggesting that by counting the number of words in the party platform, you could figure out who would win the presidential election. The smaller the page count, the more potential for winning the election. They surfaced a great deal of examples to support their proposal. They found that since 1960 the average page count of the Democrats' platforms in losing years w...

UPS just beat out Amazon, FedEx, and Uber to make America's first revenue-generating drone delivery

UPS, in partnership with drone technology company Matternet, began its daily drone delivery of medical supplies within the WakeMed Raleigh campus on Tuesday.

Downtown LA’s Chinese New Year’s Parade draws thousands

Dark rainclouds kept their distance as the 120th Golden Dragon Parade rumbled through L.A.’s Chinatown Saturday, with the only thunder pounded out by percussive drum corps.

Whether he wins again or not, Narendra Modi has caused irreparable damage to Indian science: Lord Ganesh, Shiva, Kunti and Gandhari are witness

Evaluating Narendra Modi’s imprint on India’s social fabric, or the stains left behind by five years of relentless, unapologetic majoritarianism on the communal tapestry, is an easy task to undertake. Less so, the anti-intellectualism borne out of an inferiority complex that manifests itself as an “anti-Nehru” sentiment. In today’s Deccan Herald, Prasenjit Chowdhury attempts to gauge whether India’s 14th prime minister has been “a blessing or an unmitigated disaster”, compared to the first...

A handful of psychedelic "Atlantis" mushrooms in Amsterdam

Frites, truffles and canals are awesome. Also doner kebab. I was meeting two US based criminal defense attorneys in Dublin for a couple days of slacking off. My objectives were to see Kilmainham Gaol, walk on a seawall, and enjoy a full Irish breakfast with a pot of Barry's. My traveling companions agreed to meet me in Dublin if I'd continue on with them to Amsterdam. I like waffles, I was in. The two defenders of justice had been discussing "truffles" on occasion, but it wasn't until the ...

Mahabalipuram: Sculpted along the Coast
