Final Take

A writer's perfect Sething, another's sex and his sight and Bollywood can't catch up with Mahima's Paes

Final Take
illustration by Saurabh Singh Where could he be? While Indian authors are all in the news, Vikram Seth has been surprisingly low key. The reason, we’re told, is that he is furiously writing his new book at his sister’s place in California...Another author seems much in the news, all for being in the confessional mode. In his latest book, Ved Mehta confesses that in his youth he was “sex obsessed because he was blind”. The book has been published by none other than Granta, headed by that old India hand, Ian Jack... Meanwhile, love strikes again for Leander Paes. And the ones to suffer are Mumbai film producers. His new heart-throb, actress Mahima Chaudhary, has been messing up her shooting schedules for spending more time with him abroad...The never-say-die Dev Anand has announced two new films, one of which is ostensiblyillustration by Saurabh Singh based on the recent royal killings in Nepal. It’s also rather appropriately titled Rajmahal Ka Hatyakand...Lastly, the hot new eatery in town. The top favourite now for South Indian cuisine in the Capital is Dakshin at Mariott Hotel in Saket.
