It has finally occurred to me to post links to my work published elsewhere on the Web. I hope to keep this as a live blog post, updating it as and when the time arrives. Hopefully, there will be more. 🙃
A review of the painful debut novel by Preti Taneja and a reminder that some books come out of the publishing houses unedited and full of grammar mistakes.
(The Ladies Finger)
An essay in which I talk about why I haven’t read much Dickens, the one that got away, Bollywood influences, and yes, my hair.
A book review of ‘Three Daughters of Eve’ in which I discuss how it is common for Muslim girls to have supportive fathers and why these characters should be written more, how this novel bears a glorious weight, and why Elif Shafak almost did it.
An essay in light of the “mass molestation” incident in Bengaluru on 2017 New Year’s Eve trying to understand why men must molest women and why they behave in ways that depart from public decorum.
A reflection on Max Porter’s book ‘Grief is a Thing with Feathers’ and why it is a special book for those dealing with loss and longing, discussing various motifs used and the quotable quotes.
A book review of Boualem Sansal’s novel ‘Harraga’ in which a Muslim woman heals the sick, takes danger in, talks to ghosts and goes above and beyond.
