  1. Interesting list – exhaustive I must say! But one thing is missing – Don’t want to write a novel? (apart from one act play and a short story). That will be great.

      • Welcome!

        I guess- am taking risk here- theme will be something on human sexuality. Loved your thoughts.
        I think that it is best to blend our ideas with fiction and write a novel rather than writing EPW sort of articles (this reaches more people).

        So looking forward to read your novel (before this that short story and one act play!). Aim (Man?!) Booker!

        Good luck 🙂
