I was 11 years old when I first discovered the books of E. Nesbit, a Victorian writer of children’s books. A fabulous new bookshop had just opened in Calcutta and its children’s section stocked much, much more than the usual Enid Blyton and Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books: there were shelves and shelves and shelves of books by authors I had never heard of before. Thanks to a pair of indulgent parents, I had the means to go through the shelves with the kind of thoroughness that my school teachers would have loved to see in my homework, and...

There’s a lot hinging on Mahesh Bhatt’s upcoming film Sadak 2. It marks his return to direction after 19 years, his daughter Pooja’s return to the screen after a prolonged hiatus, an opportunity for Sanjay Dutt to finally record a success after his release from jail, and possibly Aditya Roy Kapoor’s last chance to save his dying career. Though Aditya made a massive impact in the 2013 film Aashiqui 2, things have only gone downhill for him since then. Apparently, the Bhatt’s weren’t sure if they should risk casting him or have Ranbir Kapoor paired with Alia in the film,...
