Salman Rushdie Get Angry. Salman Rushdie Smash!

Salman Rushdie is pure fodder for paparazzi: He participates in literary squabbles, fights the fatwa, engages in juvenile dick-wars about book-signing records, schmoozes around the world looking for a fifth wife, and now sues (on the basis of libel) the security guard coming out with a tell-all memoir about Rushdie’s time spent under police protection.

The security guard alleges, in his forthcoming book, On Her Majesty’s Service, that Rushdie’s nickname was Scruffy. He alleges police officers tucked Rushdie into a cupboard while they went drinking. He alleges that the police paid Rushdie rent for having officers stay at his house. And Rushdie, not so allegedly, promises he will sue for libel. Ah, what good literary fun. On the happy side for Rushdie, at least The Enchantress of Florence made the Man Booker Longlist.

    I don know much about Salman R, but i read few Indian books. I’m having a presentation on ‘Indian English Authors and their contributions’ as one of my goals. As I browsed, I found an interesting website http://www.indiaplaza.in/Goldenquill/. It is called the IndiaPlaza Golden Quill Award and it is to recognize and encourage Indian writing. It actually gave me an idea about the number of writers and their amazing work.
