It’s been awhile since we last published an online issue.
In the mean time, we haven’t been completely hibernating in darkness. Publications in print for the last Kolkata Bookfair, to-be-published books and journals, various forms of existential crises akin to alternate publications and a surprising amount of apparently invisible labour that cannot be evaluated by existing laws of economy kept us busy.
Not that there has been a dearth of darkness during the months we took leave from this digital platform. Elections, lynchings, demonetizations, suicides, riots, water scarcities, land-grabs, unfair court verdicts, controversially fair death penalties, losses of jobs, hopes, lives. We had enough to read about. So did you.
A note on our future online issues : We are working towards uphauling this digital platform bit by bit, changing its essential texture. Stay tuned! We will be back soon. Maybe sooner!
A PDF version of this online issue can be found here.
