Video: Tracing Puppa

|

‘My father encouraged me to lead the life I wanted to lead,’ explains writer and filmmaker Ruchir Joshi, ‘because he had not been able to be the artist he had wanted to be.’ In ‘Tracing Puppa’ from Granta 104: ‘Fathers’, Joshi remembers his father’s struggle to overcome social and political convention, to be his own man. In this interview for Granta.com, Joshi explains how he came to write ‘Tracing Puppa’, reflects on the ‘energy of book-crazed Calcutta’ and confesses to ‘secretly or not so secretly dreaming of writing for Granta’.

    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace in a continual state of alarm (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing them with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
