News mindy and jumpa

Why we love Mindy Lahiri (and her namesake Jumpa)

The most awesome woman on television is also one of the most literate and intelligent. Her literary influences apparently include her namesake, author of The Namesake, Pulitzer prize winning fiction writer Jumpa Lahiri.

According to Kaling named her sitcom character after the author.

We love them both, and although Jumpa’s books may have more sense of prosaic style, literarally speaking, Kaling’s book looks pretty funny. You can see her here in her appearance  at the Harvard Book Store, reading from her new book and answering questions.
