We travel all the time, from place to place, thought to thought. There are yet other journeys that we would like to make but are unable to, that exist powerfully in the mind, day after day, month after month. Until Jehangir Bejan Tata died in San Francisco in 2013, he had been making one such journey for the last sixty-odd years when he was back in Shanghai, admiring the clean art deco lines of a home he left in 1952 but which had never left his mind. Bir Bahadur Singh, haunted by a similar longing, who left Pakistan during Partition, could actually make the journey back, fifty-four years later, to pick up the connections from that long past time. In Travelling In, Travelling Out: A Book of Unexpected Journeys eminent writer Namita Gokhale puts together an eclectic collection of twentyfive stories that take the reader on a journey that is surprising, moving and, sometimes, mischievous. From Advaita Kala's piece on her reaction to an intrusive security pat-down to finding one's identity as an immigrant in Amsterdam in an essay by Ali Sethi, there is a wide range of experiences to choose from. With contributors like M.J. Akbar, Rahul Pandita, Dayanita Singh, Urvashi Butalia and others among the guides, the reader can expect an unusual journey, one without the fear, moreover, of getting lost.

About the Author:

Writer and publisher Namita Gokhale is the author of twelve books. Her first novel, Paro: Dreams of Passion, published in 1984, created a furor with its candid sexual humour. Other novels include The Book of Shadows, Shakuntala: The Play of Memory, The Habit of Love and Priya, a sequel to Paro. Gokhale has worked extensively with Indian myth. She has written The Book of Shiva and retold the Mahabharata for young readers. She has also edited In Search of Sita: Revisiting Mythology, a landmark anthology on feminine figures in the Indian epics. A co-director of the Jaipur Literature Festival and of Mountain Echoes, the Bhutan literary festival, Gokhale is committed to showcasing literature from across the Indian languages. She currently curates Kitaabnama: Books and Beyond, a multilingual book show on Doordarshan.
