“What are we thinking when we think of languages as brackets? They are Venn diagrams; they are anarchic and branching and interconnected.”
– Jerry Pinto
How does a translator see languages, and the relationship between them? Why is translation critical to culture, especially in India? Award-winning writer Jerry Pinto talks about his project of translating a rich body of texts by those that were historically oppressed, including Daya Pawar’s Baluta (2015), the first Dalit autobiography which was published in Marathi in 1978.
