Slam

Ruchir Joshi's running wild in the Telegraph; in one sweetly brutal sequence, he sidewalk-slams Rushdie, Naipaul and his friend Willy D. Ring the bell, ref.

read Joshi's article, and erm..if I have to be absolutely forthright, found it rather trite and petulant.

Swinging between two extreme reactions while reading Ruchir Joshi's article. Most of what he writes actually makes a lot of sense, but sometimes you also catch a whiff of the green monster. Something akin to, "What have they got which I haven't"? A little silly in case you are talking about Rushdie and Naipaul. Even if they do not write anything worth more than "jhalmuri-thonga" in their balance lives, they still don't have to justify their existence in the literary sphere.

Had lot of expectations from Mr. Joshi, after "The Last Jet Engine Laugh". Any idea what has he done after that?
