S.B. Easwaran

S.B. Easwaran Aha! No. 1: Solving the puzzle of the Onlooker that my dad brought home with the girlie pic excised while flipping through an unexpur­gated issue at a magazine stand in Ahmedabad as a 12-year-old. Aha! No. 2: Two years later, discover­ing stacks of a medical journal, Human Sexuality, decked with lush prints of great paintings, including Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, among Lancets, RDs, Bhavan’s Journals and a treasure of novels on my granddad’s bookshelves. The wise rabbis bound honey and wisdom in inseparable ass­­ociation. Any wonder I gravita­ted to a magazine?
