New Story in Tehelka's Fiction Issue

The Second Annual Tehelka Fiction Issue is up and in keeping with its theme of Injury, I am posting this frog* whose stomach seems to have come undone right at the buttons to reveal an assorted range of punctured eggs. Ouchie.

I am very pleased to have my story Anarch included in this issue. Extra very pleased that the word 'fuck' was not written as 'f**k' and that the unEnglish words were not italicized so they could stand proud and unatrophied like their soEnglish counterparts.

Big tanks to Nisha Susan and the rest of Team Tehelka.

Can I view thee panting, lying
On thy stomach, without sighing;
Can I unmoved see they dying
On a log,
Expiring frog!
