    Sir i read some posrs of your blog, I am impressed indeed ! I especially loved your post on james joyce. Being indian i felt good that you liked tagore also. I have saved your blog i shall read each and every post on cool peaceful weekends, i will need more concentration and less disturbance to deeply enjoy your posts. Thank you very much for giving me a rare joy of reading something original so beautiful, by the way it is too arrogant to suggest you to some books for reading still i foolishly dare to suggest you to read the books of great indian author kiran nagarkar especially his extraordinary novel cuckold or other. Thanks again for this blog sir.


    • Hello Rajan, and thank you for that – that’s much appreciated. And there’s really no need to be so formal with me!

      I don’t know that I can call myself truly Indian, given that I have lived virtually all my life in the West. However, Tagore was a very prominent figure in our Bengali household, and I really had no option but to like his poetry and his songs!

      I hadn’t, I confess heard of Kiran Nagarkar, but that is because I am very ignorant about Indian literature. I shall certainly have a look for the book you recommend.

      Best wishes,
