I'm very pleased that my story In Response to Your Reader, first published in scientific journal Nature, will now also be published in Hindi in scientific journal Vigyan Sampreshan. This follows on from the Greek translation, the English reprint and an expected Romanian translation. It will be my second story published in Hindi.

The second author I decided to attempt to emulate with a remixed version of The Gondolier is none other than Shakespeare.
black prow of my gondola so swift,
smoothly through the waters o so calm,
canals the craft gives me a lift
many years of service like a charm.
many passengers along the way
city’s waters I have been a guide
generations of the service pay
ancient kin of mine who have now died.
The sun sank down upon the city old,
turned the water to a lane of ink
ribbon lain between the bricks of gold
sandstone buildings warm and gold and pink
breathed in deeply of the evening breeze,
No city stands that is more beautiful
wondrous city of canals doth please
never is a day within it dull
the boat into its mooring eased
stopped to gaze with satisfied huzzahs
Another day in which I was so pleased
To be beneath the darking skies of Mars.
