The Boxwallah and the Middleman

Looking for a relaxing sunday afternoon read? Check out Raj Chatterjee's The Boxwallah and the Middleman. This is a selection of the best "middles" written by Raj Chatterjee, a former ITC executive. Most of them reflect less complicated times, bringing back nostalgic memories of India in the 1970s and 1980s. (The "middle" itself is an endangered species as trivia and page 3 gossip take over most contemporary newspapers.) A "middle" is not profound but finds interesting ways of reflecting on contemporary life. Ideal for relaxation!

  1. In The Statesman, these middles were called "Now and Then'. That perhaps sums up the changing times.
