Words, Caravaggio. They have a power.

Michael Ondaatje’s The English patient was in my reading list for quite some time now. Enjoyed thoroughly and strongly recommended.

Two recent reads

A colleague of mine lent his copy of The myth of the holy cow. Interesting reading — especially, the piece by Ambedkar at the end of the book in the navayana edition I read.

I completed reading Sheldon Pollock’s Rasa Reader. A remarkable read even though it is a bit of a slow and at times difficult read. Enjoyed thoroughly; I am sure I will go back for at least sections of the book if not to re-read. Strongly recommended!

Here is a review and an Indian hard copy edition from Permanent Black is available which is not very costly!
