Jabberwock: On Jiya Jale: Gulzar in conversation about his songs

"And there are delightful anecdotes, such as the one about Gulzar, working for a recent film, being asked by musician Shankar Mahadevan if the song “Hum ko Mann ki Shakti Dena” (from the 1971 film Guddi) was written by him. Oh no, that is a traditional prayer we used to sing in school, said directors Shaad Ali and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, before Gulzar interjected and said he had indeed written the song for a prayer scene. It’s a story that nicely captures his stature in the film industry as a legend whose work has seeped into the DNA of our popular culture, and who continues to reinvent himself."

Reading Inga Clendinnen | The Monthly
Inga Clendinnen (1934–2016) was an eloquent teacher of history and a brilliant scholar who did not begin to talk until she was three and did not learn to read until she was eight. As a child she watched, listened and absorbed everything; then sentences sprang from her fully formed. As an adult she studied, taught and read, became an admired teacher and thinker, and then – in her early 50s – started writing books of astonishing discernment and power.
