For me, Meeting the British blew away the very idea of certainty 3.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Paul Muldoons 1987 collection was a profound influence on me as a writer, not least in how it shows how fixed ideas are subject to slippage In 1986, fresh from Africa, I arrived at university with a sheaf of poems. Nothing unusual there, except in that year Paul Muldoon was the Judith E Wilson fellow at Cambridge, and by good fortune he was in residence at my own college, Fitzwilliam. There, once a week, at about six in the evening, he convened a writing group. It wasnt a creative writing workshop, but something more fluid. People would read out poems or short pieces of prose. Once, I remember, Lee Hall, later the writer of Billy Elliot and The Pitmen Painters, brought along his guitar and sang a song. The group was a mixture of students and Cambridge residents, of varying ages. We all smoked, of course, and there was a fair bit of covert flirting. Muldoons responses to the work were elliptical, like his own writing, which we were beginning to discover in collections such as Quoof (1983) and a slim ...

All in the family: the Zaltzman comedy siblings 2.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
How does one family produce two successful comedians? Andy and Helen Zaltzman on where their humour comes from

I don't think I ever thought that "funny" was a commodity that I could use. I remember having Sunday lunch with the family when I was about five, and Rick and Andy [her older brothers] were sharing funny anecdotes about what had happened to them at school. I kept thinking, "I've got nothing." I don't think I consciously started gathering material; it just felt like humour was a valuable resource in my family, because we don't really talk emotionally or intimately with each other.

No compulsion to schools on PM Narendra Modi's Teacher's Day address: Kerala government 2.9.2014 DNA: Opinion
With the HRD Ministry's directive to states to ensure that children watch Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Teachers Day address sparking protests from certain quarters, the Kerala government today denied that it had directed schools to make arrangements for the event compulsorily. Responding to questions at a press meet here, state Education Minister PK Abdu Rabb said there was no need to withdraw the circular issued on this since it had not enjoined on school authorities that they should compulsorily make arrangements to ensure that the Prime Minister's message was carried to children live. "Where is the need for recalling the circular since it has not made it compulsory for the schools to make arrangements... But we are not against making the Prime Minister's address heard by children... Whoever wants to hear it, they can do so," Rabb, who belongs to Indian Union Muslim League, said. Meanwhile, Director of Public Instructions K Gopalakrishna Bhat denied reports that he had instructed schools to purchase ...

Artists over 50: better late than ever? 2.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
As a new exhibition of late-period Turners opens at Tate Britain, curator Sam Smiles asks if it's time art outgrew its obsession with age By the end of the year Britain will have seen three major exhibitions devoted to the work of artists at the end of their careers Matisse , Turner and Rembrandt . Add to these the poignant last paintings currently on view in Tate Modern's Malevich exhibition, and we have an extraordinary opportunity to reflect on the phenomenon of late work in the visual arts. It's a common belief, after all, that the last works of great creative artists are more profound than anything they produced in the rest of their careers. So-called "late work" is often the most radical and the most mysterious art of its time, quite at odds with contemporary voices, and we have come to relish it for just this intransigence and non-conformity. Yet the idea that late works are especially significant would have astonished our forebears. Less than 200 years ago, late-life creativity was almost a ...
