Release of ASM Journal Volume 91

We are happy to share with you that on 25th November 2023, on the occasion of the Foundation Day of the Asiatic, the Society has released Volume 91 of the ASM Journal. It has come to the Society's notice that some unscrupulous elements are collecting money for publishing papers in the Society's Journal and offering bogus certificates. The Asiatic Society does not collect money for publishing in its journal, nor does it guarantee publication, and neither does it issue any certificate. Authors must verify with the Society before submitting any papers, and papers will be published only after rigorous peer review and editing. The Society does not take responsibility for any payments made to third parties claiming to represent the Society, or for their papers appearing in a cloned/spam journal. Ours is a print-only journal. 


The Literary Club of the Asiatic Society of Mumbai and Literature Live!
invite you to an “In Conversation” on the novel
“The Hills are Burning” by Anirban Bhattacharyya with Jane Borges
Tuesday 28th November at 5 p.m

The Literary Club of the Asiatic Society of Mumbai in collaboration with Literature Live! takes pleasure in inviting you to join us in conversation with the author Anirban Bhattacharyya on his novel “The Hills are Burning” on Tuesday 28th November 2023 at 5 p.m. He will be in conversation with Jane Borges, Editor and Author.
The book is a semi-memoir. It is the true bittersweet, coming-of-age story about three friends growing up in a boarding school in Kalimpong, Darjeeling, West Bengal, set against the genesis and the subsequent violence of the Gorkhaland revolution of 1986-88.

This is an authentic representation about what transpired at that time, including the human rights violations and how the hills lost their innocence forever. It shows the effect of conflict on ordinary people, as seen through the eyes of the three children who are forced to grow up beyond their years as they are confronted by death and violence. It has been described as 'The Wonder Years meets The Killing Fields.'
The book debuted on Amazon International at No.1 for Indian writing in the USA, Australia and India. The first edition was sold out in three months' time and the second edition is now in stands.

Anirban Bhattacharyya wears many hats - he is a best-selling author, television content producer, stand up comedian and an actor. He likes writing across multiple genres. Anirban grew up in a boarding school at Kalimpong, and went on to do his Bachelor’s degree in English Literature at St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata. Later a Master’s degree in Film, Television and Mass Communication from MCRC Jamia, New Delhi.

Jane Borges is a senior journalist and author. She has co-authored the non-fiction Mafia Queens of Mumbai and Bombay Balchao. In 2022 she won the Redlnk Journalism Award.
We look forward to your participation in this discussion.

Tea will be served at 4.30 p.m.

- Prof. Mangala Sirdeshpande, Hon. Secretary Asiatic Society of Mumbai
- Meenal Kshirsagar, Vice President of the Society & Chairperson - ASM LitClub
