Leaving a Little Bit of Myself on the Page

by Devanshu Mehta

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got about writing was “leave a little bit of yourself on the page”.

That’s what I’ve done in my latest piece for The SightScreen titled Test Cricket and the Insecurity of Old Cultures:

Is Test cricket like India? An old culture, defensive about its flaws, over-celebrating its achievements, aggressive about its culture and history, and yet, if it only focused on what was so good about its present, it could be so much more.

I really loved writing it. Hope you like reading it.

By the way, the second best piece of writing advice I ever received was “who needs to die before you’ll write your great story?”
