Hello and welcome to the Lounge Podcast. This week, we have the author of our cover story, Shamik Bag, talking to us about Mother Teresa ahead of her 100th birth anniversary on 26 August.
Despite the widely varying impressions of the mother—from ‘Pied Piper of poverty tourism’ to ‘Saint of the gutters’—she remains a widely revered figure. Shamik profiled five people—teachers, dancers, singers—who were rescued by Mother Teresa and who singularly agree that they would have never been where they are today if not for her.
Film critic Sanjukta Sharma reviews the quintessential Mumbai ‘don’ film, ‘Once Upon A Time in Mumbai’ and she recommends it as a must-watch.
On the books front, Chandrahas Choudhury discusses David
Mitchell’s latest book, ’The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet’.
That’s all from us this week.
