Vol. X | Issue 3 | August 2022

From the Editor’s Desk

As India celebrates 75 year of independence, it is time to sit back and reflect on how far we have come and where we are headed. In times such as these, literature gives us hope, as we continue to publish some special pieces. For the August issue we feature SMM Ausaja’s photo essay that looks at the journey of 75 years of India through Indian cinema and its posters, in fiction we have wonderful stories including the very interesting, ‘A Topic too Distressing to Mention’. Take a look at our poetry section, it comes full of surprises - ‘In Memory of Things That Break’ is just an example of how perishable we are, and how literature resurrects us. Poet Sonnet Mondal sends in his recommendations for the TBR Recommends section, but there’s always something more.

To August then, dear readers!
