Obituary: Mahasweta Devi (1926-2016)

A very very sad day for writers and activists everywhere. The great Mahasweta Devi has died. Here is the Hindustan Times obituary. I will post a proper obituary later. I will also find the three articles I wrote about three of Devi’s stories — Mother of 1084, The Hunt, and Draupadi and post it here. What a tremendous loss for literature!

On the subject of evolved people who have left us, here is an note on a celebratory event for Lou Reed hosted by his wife Laurie Anderson and friends. I have other commitments, but if I were in New York city this weekend, I would attend this event for sure.
