We are on the road to interpret newer spaces around the 21st-century life and take note of the exciting changes impacting the world. But we have a deep longing to look back as well, to return to the previous times for a perspective to the present.
Publishing for us is all about recapturing the Nehruvian grandeur of discovering a civilization as “an ancient palimpsest on which layer upon layer of thought and reverie had been inscribed, and yet and yet, no succeeding layer had completely hidden or erased what had been written previously.”
The radical pace of transition and breathtaking possibilities of our times demand a closer, deeper examination, a more critical interpretation. Authors are welcome to talk to us whenever they have the parchments encrypted with vignettes of a pastoral idyll from another time, or a disc of today’s concerns and aspirations. We want to read – as much about stealthy terror footprints as sulphurous air killing the little songbirds.
We at Palimpsest believe that writing is the surest way of documenting an age in all its emotions. It is also an instrument for raising the bar of a culture. So for writers, researchers, social scientists, economists, journalists and historians this is a platform to hoist their works. We are because you have something new to say.
