    Madhu B Joshi, who has translated Jack Harte’s short stories into Hindi, agrees: ‘There was a whole generation that missed out on Hindi literature because the language was archaic. I try to use vocabulary people are familiar with. Idioms help humour.’ Well it is working. The Hindi heartland is chuckling and publishers are laughing – to the bank and back.
