A suitable joy

"There's still so much to write about India. I don't think I would want to do a straight sequel to A Suitable Boy. But perhaps a story about Lata when she is a grandmother. Or a prequel, a series of small prequels rather, because the characters hadn't come together yet, small stories, 200 pages, about Mrs Rupa Mehra and her husband the saintly Raghubir Mehra, Mahesh Kapoor's fight against the English, the youth of Nawab Sahib."

He smiles impishly. "Not yet, not for a while, but it is tempting."

(in 1999)
Today the sequel gears for release!

Vikram Seth seems to have led a charmed life - gilded youth, astonishing literary achievement - but behind the success Jeremy Gavron finds a driven man who confesses to a darker side and a streak of selfishness

Discovery on the right day.
#FathersDay

i.
my father belongs
to a long line of men
who have toiled to forget
where they come from.

ii.
my father has dark
skin, uneven teeth
and a voice wrapped
in forgiveness.

iii.
some days i ask him
if we are indeed men
of the valley. and how
different that made us
from men of the hills.
he said, we're people
adrift from any land.
home is where our
hearts can stay still.

iv.
there are things he wish
he could give me.
some times when
i talk about the world,
he seems lost. that
there are things he'd
never bequeath to
his children, is a
thought that scares him.

v.
some day someone
will come along and
tell me, show me your father.
and i'll turn around
only to find him gone.

vi.
but he was
right here, i'd say.
he was. but now
you are here.

vii.
that's why your father has no
stories. because you are what
became of his memories.

/our fathers are our role models for god/
