This issue of The Indian Quarterly explores 'The Night' and its various manifestations. In this issue Manjula Padmanabhan illustrates the wonderful secrets a child may find in the dark. Suprabha Seshan makes an argument that the night is a fundamental right for all inhabitants of the planet . As a flâneur of the night, Srinath Perur bares the thoughts brought on by the night, while Parni Ray writes about dark hours in trains and in desolate hotels; Janaki Lenin describes the nightly habits of the common Indian krait. Two photo essays explore different aspects of the night: Abhijeet Singh captures the lucid beauty of mountain light while Dhruv Malhotra captures the transience of nocturnal festivity. Our particularly rich and diverse fiction and poetry section includes works by, among others, Ruth Padel, Tishani Doshi, Chhimi Tenduf-La, Rabi Thapa, Salil Chaturvedi, Sumana Roy and Anubha Yadav. There’s much to keep you busy at night this quarter.
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.
