  • Kaashi: The city that wasn’t!

    Samya Brata Roy

    Chapter from the book: Menon, N et al. 2023. Indian Electronic Literature Anthology: Volume I.


    The blog is a candid description of an unusual journey to Kaashi, the land of pilgrimage and salvation. In contrast to the common rhetoric around the land, the blogger attempts to capture different, unexplored facets of the city especially in the mundane activities of its occupants. The blog interwoven with ironical pictures, metaphors, references to literary figures and celebrities (in the most unusual places!) is a unique take on Kaasi, exploring the ironies of both the place and the humans who inhabit it. Through vivid imageries and descriptions, the blogger manages to capture the attention of the readers and takes them along the journey only to find that it ended too quick.
