mont blanc boutique Jhumpa is a fiercely private person

Amitav Ghosh’s small cottage at Aldona village in north Goa is an ideal place where he wants to ‘conceive’. “I have this streak in myself that I have to be alone when I am writing; I can’t attend to people and phone calls. My cottage is in the interiors of north Goa amidst mangrove forestsjust the perfect setting I wanted to write the next part of my trilogy,” says Amitav, whose Sea of Poppies recently won the Crossword Book Award 2008 along with Neel Mukherjee. “I am very superstitious when it comes to writing. There has to be a particular pen (a Mont Blanc that he hides in his safe) and sheets of paper when I begin writing and I go through these phases where I freak out because nothing seems to come out of my mind. But I try to tell myself that it’s okay,” he adds. “We’d invite each other’s families over for dinner sometimes, but that happens occasionally since Jhumpa is a fiercely private person and doesn’t like to socialise too much,” he says on the Pulitzer Prize winning novelist. “Whenever I have met her, she talks about her kids (Octavio, 7, and Noor, 5). She keeps on telling me that her kids take up so much of her time now that she hardly has any time to do anything.”
