New Passages, a project conducted in partnership with An Lanntair, Stornoway, and the Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival, which enabled us to unite Scottish and Indian writers and take them on a round trip from Edinburgh to the Isle of Lewis and Kolkata, India, culminated in a special event at this year’s Book Festival. The four writers – Abir Mukherjee, Nalini Paul, Sandip Roy and Sampurna Chattarji – took to the stage to share their experience of a personal journey across the two countries and through time, inspired by the Mackenzie Collection of South Asian art.
