Killing the Salman

"If you meet the Rushdie on the road, kill him." That's the first of Hurree Babu's "Brave New Rules of Indian writing". Read the rest here. Long may the noble Hurree's dhuti stay starched.

On a tangent, I don't understand these debates about great Indian novels and Indian writing in English and so on. A good book is a good book, and a good writer is a good writer. Leave 'Indian' out of it. It's a word of clay: it has no shape, and it has any shape you want it to have. These are silly, pointless debates.
