“It annoys me that the world’s concept of India is filtered through the surreality of Bollywood. It would be like South Asians imagining the U.S. solely based on images of Las Vegas or something.” – When the reel is taken for the real.

“I like when a man I’m out with holds the door but I’ll hold one for him too. It’s consideration, not a sexist issue!” – Daylle Deanna Schwartz on the changing etiquette between the sexes.

“The compassion of the author’s voice extends to men with a complexity that only a feminism that has been steeped in actual human engagement, not just political rhetoric, would allow.” – A review of Fish In A Dwindling Lake, a collection of stories by Ambai.
