Hello and welcome to the Lounge Podcast. We have a book heavy podcast lined up for you today, with a chat with Jad Adams, the author of the latest biography on Mahtama Gandhi which is called Gandhi: Naked Ambition. He speaks about Gandhi’s obsession with symbolism, his experiments with sex and the neglect of his sons. We also review the Chinese writer Mo Yan’s latest book, Change.
We chat with Rahaab Allana, the curator of the Alkazi Foundation for the Arts, who is opening his first solo show of photographs today. “Worlds of difference” is a culmination of around ten years of photographic documentation of his travels across South Asia. It’s on at the Allaince Francaise de Delhi from 9-16 April.
In our regular film segment, our film critic Sanjukta Sharma reviews the Oscar winning The Hurt Locker as well as Aparna Sen’s film, The Japanese Wife.
That’s all from us this week.
