World-beating short stories (Part 1): Kritika Pandey, winner of the 2020 Commonwealth Short Story Prize, tells We’d Like A Word presenters Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan what makes a good short story to appeal to readers around the world. She reads from her winning story, The Great Indian Tee and Snakes. Kritika discusses her literary influences - Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, Mahasweta Devi, Ravindranath Tagore & Clarice Lispector. And how religion, nationalism, class and language influence her writing. We also discuss the merits of potato bread v aloo paratha. And we hear about laughter yoga and Narendra Modi. We'd Like A Word is a podcast and radio show from authors Paul Waters and Stevyn Colgan. We talk with writers, readers, celebrities, talkers, poets about books, songs, lyrics, speeches, scripts, fiction and non-fiction. We go out on various radio platforms at least once a fortnight and every other Wednesday on podcast. Our website is www.wedlikeaword.com - which is where you'll find information about Paul and Steve and our guests - and details of the radio stations that carry We'd Like A Word. We're also on Twitter @wedlikeaword and Facebook @wedlikeaword and our email is firstname.lastname@example.org - and yes, we are slightly embarrassed by the missing apostrophes. We like to hear from you - your thoughts, ideas, guest or book suggestions. Perhaps you'd like to come on We'd Like A Word in person, to chat, review, meet writers or read out passages from books. . .
