Bride of the Forest: The Untold Story of Yayati’s Daughter This novel, a compelling exploration of freedom and free will, owes as much to the power of the myth as to Mahadevan’s artistry in redrawing its contours.
Deccan Herald

2020, a tumultuous decade conflated, is thus a poignant time to reread [Purushottam Agrawal’s Who Is Bharat Mata?, a compendium of writing by Nehru and about Nehru.] India is witnessing both a once-in- a-century pandemic and a build-up of tens of thousands of troops at the border with China, almost 60 years after the Indian Army was routed in 1962 when Nehru was prime minister. What progress has been made in health and defence since and how might Nehru have responded?

Economist and activist Devaki Jain acknowledges both the inspiration and the irony in her recent memoir, The Brass Notebook. In a meeting with [Doris] Lessing in 1958, the writer instructed her to ‘write your story now’. Decades later, Jain, now 87, chose brass as “the receptacle for my story”, “a hardier, homelier metal than gold. It represents not perfection or unity, but an honourable imperfection consistent with my own limits”.
