Two entries in a ledger

Caravan is an old Indian magazine that shut down for many years. Its publishers have revived it in a new avatar, and in some ways it aims to be an Indian New Yorker: narrative and long-form journalism, the arts, that sort of thing.

In the February 2010 issue, I have an essay about the Asirgarh fort in Madhya Pradesh and the Narbona Pass in New Mexico: Two Entries in a Ledger.

Comments welcome.

I read it online yesterday - and liked it a lot - particularly 'new in-laws were the better part of valour' :) isn't that the Jodha- Akbar story too?

Read it before you posted about it. It's one of the best travel writing from India I've read lately! Brilliant piece.
