One planet for all: A reminder for us on World Stray Animals’ Day

I ask myself, and often wonder if humans, as a species, possess greater intelligence and a greater ability to shape their environments? Do we recognise the intricate balance of the world we live in?

In this rat race, while you walk through the lanes today, divert some of your attention to your surroundings; something that you may have unknowingly overlooked, unheard or unfelt. In a crowd of 1.4 billion people and approx. 203 lakh community animals (including community dogs and cattle), we might miss or not notice things that need our attention. (HT File)

Interview: Manish Gaekwad, author, The Last Courtesan – “My mother and I were accomplices in this”

The genre of memoir was the best way to tell Rekhabai's story because she wanted to share her life in her own voice and not through another narrator. She wanted to be honest and truthful, and the memoir allowed her to do that. The process of writing the memoir was enjoyable and brought the author and Rekhabai closer together. Rekhabai would have been thrilled about the book's reception and the attention it is getting. The cover of the book features a picture of Rekhabai performing her routine as a dancer. The process of listening to Rekhabai's life story did not alter the author's relationship with the various places in India that the story unfolds in. The author's experience as a screenwriter influenced the narrative choices made in the book, but the prospect of selling movie rights did not influence how it was written. While working on the book, the author read various books including The Book of Disquiet and Fictions. If the book were to be made into a movie, the author would choose Tripti Dimri to play Rekhabai. Some depictions of courtesans in Indian cinema and literature that stood out for the author include Sardari Begum and Umrao Jaan Ada. The author believes that the stereotype of the tawaif as a sex-worker needs to be more informed. The author responds to gay men who romanticize the lives of courtesans by saying that if they find comfort and expression in courtesan-ship, why not? The author is currently working on a book about their own growing up years in the kotha and a rom-com film script.
