Neluka Silva: Amitav Ghosh, you are a novelist and you also write journalistic pieces on travel. in what ways are your travel writing and fiction linked? Am1tav Ghosh: It's hard to say. I don't think of my journalistic writing as 'travel wnhng' as such; for me, travelling is always in some way connected with my fictional work. It's a very close link, I would say.
