When Literary Giants Speak : Part II

This is a sequel to another post with a similar title . Here's another lesson in writer-gab.

The great Indian novel : How to write one sentence in 200,000 different ways and then find 200,000 euphemisms for each of the initial alternatives. Continue the process recursively till you have a manuscript that's too heavy to handle.

Colonial hangover: One of the prerequisites for the great Indian novel.

ABCD: 'American Born Confused Desi', a prerequisite for great Indian novels born to the west of the Atlantic.

To be continued....
