Reading The Game

  • Sunday, 22nd Nov
  • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm IST

What could most unite a sesquipedalian, a thespian, a litterateur and a journalist? In India, obviously what else but the national obsession: cricket. Playing cricket, watching cricket, analysing cricket, and reading about cricket, a game which has lent itself to some of the most lyrical, elegant, learned, and even humourous books and writing ever published. What is it about the thwack of bat on ball that so captivates the mind and pen? Shashi Tharoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Anil Dharker and Ayaz Memon share their best loved books and authors, related to their best loved game.
