Write like no one is watching
When you write on your own, you can write the extremes.
Comfortable v/s uncomfortable
I feel as comfortable anywhere as I feel uncomfortable anywhere.
Modern India v/s Writers
I do think that the modern India does belong to writers who are living in India.
In India, if you are from the elite, dogs are extremely important. The breed of the dog indicates your wealth, that you are westernized.
Writing v/s rules
I don’t think you can write according to a set of rules and laws; every writer is so different.
Love for cooking
I’m always in the kitchen, cooking and experimenting – I love it.
We think of immigration as a Western issue but, of course, it isn’t.
The Indian diaspora is a wonderful place to write from, and I am lucky to be part of it.
Odds of good
If you write a lovely story about India, you’re criticized for selling an exotic version of India.
Odds of being a critic
If you write critically about India, you’re seen as portraying it in a negative light – it also seems to be a popular way to present India, sort of mangoes and beggars.
Publishing v/s reading
The publishing world is very timid. Readers are much braver.
