Life is not a passage of random events; it’s the constant and conscious creating and culling of culture, and in that cull, how do we retain parts of ourselves? Love ‘n Share It (2018) by Bennet Paes is, on the face of it, a fictional love story set in Paes’s beloved Sashti (roughly south) Goa, but within its many folds is the memory of a Goa lost or at any rate fading. Paes is not unique in being preoccupied with the past.
