Pickles From Home: The Worlds of A Bilingual (Paperback) Price: Rs.250

This book deals throughout with two linguistic worlds and the perennial gliding that takes place between them. Of the two, what is embedded and constant is the author's native world. It moves inside him and he compares it to the borderless travel of pickles. Pickles follow recipes handed down across generations in a family, and they are prepared in pristine and ritualistic environments. Thats the secret of their longevity and our palete often remembers and seeks the formulas we have been used to since our very early days. This is the book's grand metaphor. To whatever the author perceives in the wider world, the native view is like a homemade pickle that adds a tangy, sharp tickle. In the multi-course meal of experience, the pickle is the most unassuming, yet essential and defining accompaniment. Tasted along with a finely cooked dish, it is a raw delight. Moreover, for what are seemingly a collection of assorted essays, the binding of this book is like a pickle jar that holds them together. Among the plethora of books being written and published on India currently, this book represents an alternative narrative. It does not try to make sense of the country's diversity and complexity by travelling over a wide terrain and skimming the surface. Instead, it digs deep into one culture, or one particular cultural transaction, to assimilate and clarify the confounding mass.
