"Sometimes I think we have no present, only the past. They paint a Rosy picture, these tellers of tales and very sensibly don't dwell too long or too often on the bad guys. That's not quite true. What they do is far more dangerous. They turn the fratricidal and bloody struggles that always preface the assumption of throne after a king dies, into a hundred or thousand pretty couplets about heroism and valour. They cannot see death's head above the crown of each king. We are our enemies best friends. For what better chaos and anarchy can they wish upon Mewar than that which we wreck upon ourselves?" . . . . . . . . #cuckold #kirannagarkar #rajasthan #mewar #fiction #fictionbooks #rajputs #love #lovereading #bookish #booksaboutbooks #bookstagrammer #booksy #bookishquotes #quotes #nagarkar #readingindia #indianauthors #booksandchill #booksread #bookshelves #bookwarrior #warriors #rajputs #struggle #war

In English, he was the great storyteller. In Marathi, he just did wondrous things with the language.’
Anil Dharkar hired Kiran Nagarkar to write reviews for his magazine Debonair.
Nagarkar was awarded Germany’ Order of Merit. His latest release was his work The Arsonist, highlighting the life of famous saint-poet Kabir.
