Stirring words from the margins

Hello,

I was inspired and moved while reading Five powerful Plays of the iconic Mahasweta Devi: India's passionate champion of indigenous and other people often excluded from the 'mainstream'. Hope my review below is useful.

BLOSSOM

Pushpa,

You are a lady of deep reflection. I've read your posts. I do so admire folks who are able to do overviews and critiques which appeal to many others. I'm so subjective in my writing. You have a very special gift: It is the exemplification of your name: Through your critiques you blossom and flower other people's work. It is a unique ability, which many writers are extremely grateful for. But more than that, in your critiques, you write in a very original style.

You know what I would like to see you do, otherwise than encourage scared old cats like me to carry on writing? I think it would be great if you could be a kind of a 'translator' for other women, of the more intellectual womens' writings. You have access to, and understand intellectual writings. If you could rephrase them for the less educated person and write simple summaries for ordinary people....or perhaps you are already doing this? There are so many community and school newsletters and regional newspapers which orrinary folks read, but the critiques of books so often go way above our heads, that we are not drawn to the original works. You have a way of bringing complicated writings to an easy to understand level, for everyone with less reading ability, to enjoy too. Don't stop doing this...

Love and hugs from Monica in France

I wish you 'Nangamso', that is: May you continue to do the good work which you do so well.
