My apology for not going through this newly released book
'The Lowland ' by Jhumpa Lahiri. Her growing up with at
least two names of Calcutta (Vivekananda Road & Tollygunge)
might arose some amount of curiosity among old Calcuttans.
Especially when the author claims to be an outsider-though having
an existing family tree here.It will be interesting to find out how she
educates herself -trying to trace back the mindset of a 'certain period.'
