On Being a Journalist

A Change is Coming

My husband once observed that I ascribe my bad behavior and unpleasant physical changes to the ‘woman’ baggage I carry.

Despite glowing reviews the film was banned in some parts of India last year due to its depiction of Guru Nanak, the revered founder of Sikhism.
