The Indian Quarterly (IQ) is a national and international magazine. We hope that just as The New Yorker exhibits a distinctly Manhattan sensibility and always contains articles about New York City, IQ will manifest the fact that it is edited and published in Mumbai through its cosmopolitan and open-minded perspective on the world and on India. In fact, we hope to provide a unique way of interpreting our ever changing culture, and to define our own experiences through the strength of thought, ideas and imagery, be it in the form of fact, fiction, poetry, illustration or photography. IQ is therefore a paean to the polyphonic nature of reflection and the creativity that is its outcome.

In this issue, writers examine how this subterfuge plays out in both their personal and professional lives. In a timely essay, Sandip Roy writes about telling his family about being gay. While Jerry Pinto discusses the futility of keeping family secrets from close friends, Shreevatsa Nevatia explores the ramifications of keeping grave childhood abuse secret into adulthood. Reliving his boyhood absorption with spooks and espionage, Indrajit Hazra writes about spy fiction and films, whereas Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan, a blogger-turned-columnist, compares impact disclosures made online with those on the printed page. G Vishnu questions the ominous loss of privacy caused by Aadhaar. Shougat Dasgupta maintains that fiction allows writers to portray the truth better. Siddhartha Hajra turns his lens on the secrets of the night while Ruchita Madhok and Tanushka Karad uncover Mumbai’s near-invisible Art Deco. Elsewhere, we have Manjima Bhattacharjya’s essay on the lives of models off the ramp, Jayanta Roy’s poignant photographs of winter in Kashmir, Rakhshanda Jalil’s essay on the improbable and fascinating world of Ibn-e-Safi and Meren Imchen’s delightful comic about a stud-pig and his pimp. And as usual, our fiction and poetry sections bring you interesting new voices and exciting new translations. Enjoy a winter of deep content.
