In the wake of successive lockdowns, with book sales shrinking across the board and some bookstores being forced to close down, I found myself thinking in particular about translations, and how the pandemic might make it even more challenging to publish these.

Open to Indian nationals, the NIF Fellowship carries a stipend of Rs 150,000 per month for a year, apart from editorial and publishing support.
