Fiction / Not talking in a city of loudspeakers

The door didn’t fully click shut. That was an ordinary affair in the house because the door locked to prevent escape. But, by chance or sheer good luck, it didn’t fully lock this time. The click was off. Someone hadn’t done their job correctly. Bloody hell, no one does their jobs correctly in this godforsaken country.

KA DINGA PEPO

It is odd that nowadays One seldom hears the words

Poetry / IS & WAS

Death dwells between is and was, Riding the final particle of a fading breath.

BOOK REVIEW: FICTION / Twistier than a jilapir pyatch

It’s a truism to say that modern life is complicated, but even a couple of decades ago, it would have been hard to predict the things we are dealing with today.

World Literacy Month / Media literacy and the case of overrated classics

In this digital age, we are processing a large amount of information everyday and it’s important to learn media literacy in order to see the bigger picture.

Fiction / My London: An immigrant story

You land in London with £210 in your pocket. It is the year 2009. You are able to pay the first month’s rent for the room, but not the deposit. You have to share it with an acquaintance from Dhaka. He arrived a week prior.

ESSAY / RRReading

Even if you are not a film enthusiast, chances are high that you have watched the 2022 Telegu blockbuster RRR. At the very least, you should have heard about it.

Tribute / The fearless, experimental poetry of Binoy Majumdar

As time passed by and as the poet made an introspection in seclusion, he dug up such verses which to the reader might feel like a revelation of truth.

BOOK REVIEW: FICTION / The occult thrills of ‘The Centre’

Rarely does a book arrive, a debut no less, that feels as inventive and accomplished as Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi’s The Centre. Her novel is built on the crossroads of interpretation and ownership, of the power of language and of those privileged enough to reclaim it.
