‘Apart from going public on social media, the other striking feature of this mission was that it allowed the country to see women scientists upfront for the first time, dispelling long-held stereotypes of the fuzzy-haired Einsteinian male scientist. “You know, we know Mars is for men. Now we have proved that Mars is not only for men,” Arunan jokes.’
Scroll carries an excerpt from Those Magnificent Women And Their Flying Machines: ISRO’s Mission on Mars by Minnie Vaid.

From 1684 till the present, the Indian diaspora in South Africa has had a long history. But in the country of their origin, they remain synonymous with three points of identity: indenture, apartheid and Mahatma Gandhi. Through What Gandhi Didn’t See: Being Indian in South Africa, Zainab Priya Dala deftly lifts the veil on some of the many other facets of South African Indians, starting with the question: How relevant is Gandhi to them today?’ Indian Writers Forum carries an excerpt from What Gandhi Didn’t See: Being Indian in South Africa by Zainab Priya Dala.

Reviews

There are fresh discoveries on every page of Out of Syllabus, Sumana Roy’s debut collection of poetry.’Book review of Out of Syllabus by Sumana Roy.

‘A woman’s body has many claimants—the man, the society and the cosmetic industry. Rarely does a woman claim her body, warts and all. Shanta Gokhale’s autobiography, On Foot on the Ground-A Life Told through the Body – does that with all honesty.’Book review of On Foot on the Ground: A Life Told through the Body by Shanta Gokhale.

‘In this collection of short stories written over three-and-a-half decades, Upamanyu Chatterjee brings a distinctive and powerful narrative voice that had marked his debut novel English, August. The humour is subtle, dark and hard-hitting.’
Book review of The Assassination of Indira Gandhi by Upamanyu Chatterjee.
