How to Tell a Mumbai Story An Evening of Raconteuring

Event Description

Mithun Number Two is a collection of stories by the award-winning author and translator team that won the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature in 2018 for a previous collection titled No Presents Please. These stories explore moments of transcendence in the midst of anonymity and routine. Characters, both young and old, migrate to Mumbai for various reasons, where strangers become friends, families navigate strife and affection, and children grow up in homes with blurred lines between coercion and care. Jayant Kaikini’s stories, translated by Tejaswini Niranjana, are delightfully unexpected and deceptively simple. This evening has the writer and translator in conversation with two more formidable persons of letters – Vanamala Vishwanath and Indira Chandrasekhar as they respond, reflect and reminisce over the evocative storytelling of Mithun Number Two.
