Read an exclusive excerpt from All Those Who Wander by Kiran Manral (Published by Amaryllis (An Imprint of Manjul Publishing House), 2023)

The day it happened, there had been nothing on the television or radio until the night. Old Bosco uncle, retired professor of philosophy, University of Mumbai, on the ground floor of B wing, heard the news on the BBC radio and had been yelling it throughout the day from his balcony at whoever was passing by. He was half crack everyone said, no one paid him much heed. He could rightfully be called ‘Doctor’, he told Nayna once. He was a Ph.D., and Nayna had laughed at him saying, only those who studied medicine were doctors and a Ph.D. meant a phone directory. He had laughed back and nodded, saying his Ph.D. was not worth the paper it was printed on, and wouldn’t even fetch him anything in raddi money.
