Prisoners, Lovers and Spies: The Story of Invisible Ink from Herodotus to al-Qa’eda By Kristie Macrakis The libidinous Roman poet Ovid was long thought to have made the earliest surviving written reference to invisible ink in his manual The Art of Love. He recommended young lovers to use ‘new milk’ made visible with a sprinkling of coal dust. John Gerard, a Jesuit priest immured in the Tower of London in 1597, and tortured by being hung from manacles until he temporarily lost the use of his arms, was a resourceful as well as courageous fellow. Dependent on the kindness of his jailer, a warder named Bonner, for such intimacies as washing, dressing and shaving, Gerard also persuaded the turnkey to bring him a bag of oranges. Regaining the use of his hands, he employed the fruit for two purposes: to fashion crosses and rosaries from the discarded peel, and to make invisible ink from the juice. Using this secret script, and writing with a toothpick, Gerard made contact with Catholic co-religionists outside ...

Vinod Rai, the former Comptroller and Auditor General of India, is in the news again. Predictably, his book 'The Diary of the Nation's Conscience Keeper: Not Just an Accountant' has ruffled many feathers. Rai spoke to Shemin Joy of Deccan Herald on Manmohan Singh, CAG and other topics. Excerpts: Responding to your book, Manmohan Singh has said he did his duty.
