Vaadach Nahi

PL Deshpande - a doyen of Marathi literature. But what happens when three friends who know him differently sit to discuss his work?

Meet Vinit, the expert. He's grown up listening to PL. Then there's Bhupal... he's heard enough PL to know what's going on, but is open to knowing more. And then there's Dhruv... he's, well... the novice! And he's hearing most of this for the first time. 

It's a journey of learning, discovery, new perspectives and continued awe of the great man's works.

Mhais

When a buffalo intercepts an ST bus on its way between Mumbai and Ratnagiri, a beautiful chaos ensues. In what must surely rank as one of Pu La’s most beloved stories, Mhais tells one story that houses within it many others, like buds on a tree. To Dhruv, Mhais represents the best entry point for an...

Narayan

Pu La's vivid sketch of Narayan from his 1966 book Vyakti aani Valli paints a picture of sights, sounds and smells while revealing a man who gives of himself without taking anything in return, at that most important of times in our adult lives: the wedding. All our weddings had a Narayan. Or many Na...
