Memories of matrons

first_imgMuch acclaimed poet and author Keki N Daruwalla launched his new book – ‘Daniell Comes to Judgement: New and Vintage Daruwalla’, a collection of short stories at The India Habitat Centre in the national Capital recently. Most of the stories are written from a woman’s perspective – a woman’s voice, moods and memories – in a span of less than two months. ‘Bars,’ a new story, is a commentary on the strains of intolerance staining the social fabric.

In short, the master storyteller weaves his magic yet again. “I don’t know how the matter of writing from a woman’s voice came to my mind, but in case of some of the stories you can see, if I would have written them in a man’s voice, (the husbands voice for example) it would not have been a short story,” said Daruwalla, who has written over 12 books and had published his first novel ‘For Pepper and Christ’ in 2009. “Keki writes in a reflective way about an India of which he is extremely affectionately disposed towards.

He likes the people he is writing about and he communicates himself,”said writer and publisher, Ritu Menon, present during the book-launch along with academic, food critic and historian Pushpesh Pant.Keki’s writing is mostly concerned with rural India but in this new book, he concentrated on the urban scenario. When queried about the reason, he said, “Prose writing is all about what you know and what you come across. It is the characters we meet and the kind of situation that you can write on.”last_img read more
