Extractions: From: Down Melody Lane (1984, Orient Longman) pp. 42-46 The year was 1935 and Kundanlal Saigal was singing at the Allahabad Music Conference. His voice held the huge gathering spellbound. I too came under the spell. Being at the peak of my musical career, I had been invited to perform along with several other noted artists from all over India. Saigal came from Calcutta. He was at that time the uncrowned king of the screen. His unforgettable role in Devdas and his poignant rendering of Piya bin nahee aavat chain had captured millions of hearts. At the end of his performance, Saigal received a standing ovation which lasted several minutes. It was impossible for any other artist to perform that evening after Saigal's tremendous success. As I came out of the hall, I was greeted by my old friend from Nagpur, Mr. D. N. Hosali who later introduced me to Saigal. They were close friends and had travelled together from Calcutta.

Once long ago, there arose a quarrel between two kings. One king was the great Brahmadatta. His kingdom was large and rich, and his troops were many. The other king was Dighiti. His kingdom was small and poor, and his troops were few. So they took their young son, Dighavu, and fled by night to Benares. There they lodged in a poor quarter of the city. King Dighiti disguised himself as a wandering holy man and each day begged enough coins and food for them all. Now, it happened that the barber from the court of King Dighiti was at this time at work in the court of Brahmadatta. One day, the barber caught sight of Dighiti in the marketplace, begging in the guise of a holy man. Hoping for reward, he secretly followed Dighiti to his home, then reported to Brahmadatta.

Tanuja Desai Hidier a comingof-age story with an indian-American female was included in the Big CityLit anthology (New City) celebrating the last decade of asian-American writing http://www.scholars.nus.edu.sg/landow/post/india/desaihidier/bio.html
Extractions: TANUJA DESAI HIDIER is American-born and currently based in the UK. Prior to moving, she lived in New York City, where she worked by day as a writer/editor for magazines, CD-Rom projects, and websites. Her first novel, Born Confused (Scholastic Press; October 2002) is a coming-of-age story with an Indian-American female protagonist, an aspiring photographer living in New Jersey, and is set both there and in New York City, largely in the context of the burgeoning South Asian club scene. The heart of Born Confused is about learning how to bring two cultures together without falling apart yourself in the process. The book takes its title from the BC of ABCD, or American Born Confused Desi, a slightly derogatory term that first generation South Asians in the States and elsewhere use to describe these second generation Americans who are supposedly "confused" about their South Asian background. (Desi is Hindi for "from my country.") This theme of first and second generation India, and of finding your place in America, figures prominently in much of Desai Hidier's other work as well. Her Partition-era short story, "The Border", was awarded first prize in the fiction category in the London Writers/Waterstones Competition in October 2001. Also in the fall of 2001, her short story "Tiger, Tiger", which deals with the very real dangers that can result from exoticizing, and self-exoticizing, was included in the Big City Lit anthology (New York City) celebrating the last decade of Asian-American writing.
