I took in way too much this week. And not enough absorption happened. I’m feeling that pressure right now. Feeling exhausted. The plan is therefore to go to sleep. And wake up remembering a dream. I want to remember more dreams.

Isn’t Jung’s Memories, Dreams, Reflections the most riveting thriller you ever read?

CIIS needs a Margaret Doody. A brilliant, eccentric, swoon-worthy female professor whose scholarship spans, nay, dazzles, the cosmos. I was getting a little tired of the patrilineal exaltation on Friday.

 And the Jaipur Literature Festival! It’s shown the world that it is really not about literature but about the four corners of law. Hari Kunzru, Amitava Kumar, Jeet Thayil, Ruchir Joshi. You are folk heroes. Or about to be. Thank you.
