Originally intended as a collection of my book reviews, this blog now contains a mix of book reviews and social and political commentary. My interests in fiction have changed over the years, from the Russian classics to Latin American literature and more recently contemporary Chinese literature. I also maintain a blog on the Indian historian and mathematician DD Kosambi.
My professional blog on software engineering is less frequently updated. I live with my better half, Bhaswati Ghosh, in southern Ontario, Canada.
is a writer and occasionally blogs here besides her own blog.
I have also translated most of the poems in the collection “To the Punjab of Farid” and Bhaswati and I helped to edit “Recovering the Lost Tongue” written by Rahul Banerjee. Both are available from amazon.com by following the links on the images below.
“To the Punjab of Farid and other poems” is available as a free e- book.
An unabridged version of “Recovering the Lost Tongue” is also available on-line.
