Manu Joseph is at it again. Exploring what men are about. His writing seems a compelling commentary lately.
Quotes a conversation with Sudhir Mishra ahead of his Daas Dev release –

And then, there is this very fine grain of an observation by Mishra-
“There is the mythology of you, we all have a mythology of ourselves, but then we see our real selves in a story and we recognize what we are.”
