A masala is of course a mix of things. In the culinary version it is spices that imbibe our food with a texture and tones. In music I guess hip-hop would be the closest to a masala. Art is more difficult. Perhaps modern art would be the best use of the term… Next comes the literary analogy. Books, poems and even our conversations are a masala of terms, dialects and languages. So what better title for a mix of diasporic writers each with our own voice, resonating to the same chord?
WORD MASALA: Brings together widely published, finest, but grossly ignored non-resident South-Asian Diaspora authors, poets, artist and photographers.
