Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o: “I want to revive the connections between Africa and Asia”
April 16, 2018
This is the first part of a conversation between Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o and Sudhanva Deshpande. The writer was in Delhi for the ILF Samanvay Translations Series-2018, organised in collaboration with Seagull Books, at the Indian Habitat Centre. In this conversation with Deshpande, actor and publisher, he talks of the presence of India in his novels; the need to fight against imperialism; and the necessity to secure one's base in order to resist the coloniser.
