‘Opera House’ by Jayant Kaikini, translated by Tejaswini Niranjana

The way that Kaikini writes is beautiful to me because he always shows the ways that other lives touch the tips of others, like a leaf at the brow. In ‘Opera House’ we get to see how after midnight, there is no such thing as age. It is a story I return to.
