Join Book Club Girl as she welcomes Jyotsna Sreenivasan to discuss her debut novel And Laughter Fell from the Sky.
And Laughter Fell from the Sky, the enthralling first novel from Jyotsna Sreenivasan, is a stirring contemporary love story about two young Indian-Americans trying to find love and their place in the world, while dealing with the confines and pressures of their culture and their families. A remarkable literary journey that carries the reader from the American heartland to the Pacific Northwest and into the teeming heart of India, And Laughter Fell from the Sky is a magnificent debut by a fresh and exciting new voice, immediately placing Sreenivasan alongside Jhumpa Lahiri, popular author of The Namesake, as an expert chronicler of the Indian-American cultural experience.
“A timely story about what matters most deeply: our quest for love and acceptance….Jyotsna Sreenivasan’s writing speaks straight to the heart.”
—Kim Barnes, author of In the Kingdom of Men

Mattie, her friends and a wizard are hurled backwards in time to escape an evil serpentine creature of the underworld who they must ultimately defeat in Shoba Sreenivasan’s “Mattie Spyglass and the 8 Magic Stones” “Mattie Spyglass and the 8 Magic Stones” (ISBN 0985360402) is a dramatic and mythical work that will entrance children and adults alike. Shoba Sreenivasan creates an evocative story about an 11-year old girl whose world is forever changed when she comes across a mysterious spyglass. Mattie’s adventure begins in the year 1968 in the most ordinary of places: the basement of Sears in Hackensack, New Jersey. There the spyglass chooses Mattie as her owner catapulting her friends Eddie, Geeta and an old wizard named Mr. Herman Biddle into the dangerous River of Time. On the run from the serpentine Uri Gneezy, who would use the Spyglass’ magic to control the world, the wizard hurls Mattie and her friends through the past, from the time of the rule of the last Russian Czar to the evil winter of the Nazis. Uri Gneezy is aided in his pursuit by all the sinister creatures contained in the Black Book of Magic. In opposition, Mr. Biddle holds the White Book of Magic which reveals the Enuma Elish, the Babylonian Book of Creation, and the daunting task before this intrepid crew: they must cross the treacherous Path of the Virtuous, otherwise known as “The 8 Magic Stones.” Mattie is far from home and just a young girl, yet the challenges she face will summon a courage and maturity inside her she barely knew she possessed. To get out alive she needs to fight back against the forces of darkness. Shoba Sreenivasan is a forensic psychologist. She earned a doctorate in psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles and is a clinical professor at USC.

SAJA, the South Asian Journalists Association, representing 1,000+ journalists in the US and Canada, present their latest SAJA Briefing.
Join Anup Kaphle, digital foreign editor of the Washington Post and Sree Sreenivasan, Columbia University's Chief Digital Officer as we discuss one of the biggest crises in four decades of Bangladeshi history.
Our speakers: Maneeza Hossain, senior fellow at Hudson Institute, specializing in prospects of democracy in South Asia and the Middle East and has written extensively on Bangladesh; and Zain Al-Mahmood, a journalist based in Dhaka, covering Bangladesh for WSJ. His interests are politics, human rights and sustainable development.
For the last 4 weeks, Bangladesh has been convulsed by the Shahbagh movement. What started as the protest of bloggers against a back-door deal between the government and the opposition Islamist party Jamaat-e-Islami, has mushroomed into continuous street protests against the war criminals of Bangladesh's 1971 liberation war. During the brutal war that gave birth to Bangladesh, the genocidal campaign of the Pakistan army was assisted by local Bengali collaborators, known as "razakars." In 2011, the Awami League government began long-delayed war crimes trials against some of the alleged razakars, most of whom are now top ranking leaders of the country's largest Islamist party, the Jamaat-e-Islami. But the unexpectedly lenient sentencing of Quader Mollah, known as the "Butcher of Mirpur," set off the protests that snowballed into Shahbagh, filling the streets with up to 500,000 protesters, mos

SAJA, South Asian Journalists Association, presents the latest in its series of world-class conversations with fascinating speakers from the media, arts, politics and more.
For much of the nearly eight years of its existence, SEPIA MUTINY was a singular phenomenon, tackling just about every South Asian diasporic issue there was, serious or inane. In the process, it established itself as a model of intelligent, interactive blogging, and the voice of a generation.`
Those of us who worked elsewhere in the desi media, including at SAJAforum - looked on with a combination of admiration and envy -- How are they so prolific? What makes their readers so damn smart? But we felt nothing but regret when the Mutineers decided to close their doors last month. We know there will be nothing else like it. But join us Thursday night at 11 pm (Eastern time) for a very special SAJA webcast, as we conduct the SEPIA MUTINY EXIT INTERVIEW. We'll be joined by Sepia Mutiny founder Abhi Tripathi, blogging hellion Anna John, and the mysterious but always trenchant Ennis. We hope to also have plenty of SM fans participate, too. Moderating the conversation will be Arun Venugopal (@ArunNYC), WNYC reporter and Prof Sree Sreenivasan (@Sree), Columbia J-School.
