from russia with love

ANNE VYALITSYNA, KNOWN TO ALL AS ANNE V, IS A 5'10" RUSSIAN supermodel who once posed naked for the cover of Vogue. She’s a woman with a face so coveted—by the likes of Chanel and Calvin Klein—that she fronted a reality series called The Face. And yet, when we meet for coffee in Manhattan’s West Village, what she really wants to talk about is decidedly less titillating. It’s America’s citizenship test. Or more specifically, her issues with it. She tucks her impressively long legs underneath the table and gets right to the point. “I take this shit very seriously,” she says. V was a straight-A student in Russia and wants me to know that she approached the exam with a similar resolve; she didn’t want to pass the test so much…

sleuth & sexy

We desperately needed a sexy female Indian superhero, so thank you! What’s your favourite thing about Anantya Tantrist? Let me start with a little confession. I gleefully created Anantya for myself. I’ve grown up on a healthy dose of badass characters like John Constantine or Harry Dresden in novels. I craved for a female version of them all based in Indian myths and folklore. A 20-something, who can do blood magic and solve supernatural crimes that no one else can while encountering creatures of the night, and then head to a bar at the end for a soma-on-the-rocks and some casual pick-me-up-sex. Anantya Tantrist, a tantric detective based in Delhi is exactly that. She’s a mix of Bollywoodesque brashness with the crime-solving nose of Sherlock Holmes, and I’ve enjoyed every bit…

an excerpt

Tearing at my clothes and grabbing my satchel the two bharundas on either side dragged me uphill and then down, through burrows and shafts to reach an entrance. ‘Have you been to Barbareeka’s Palace of Bones?’ asked Grrhat. He walked, followed by the bharundas who held me captive. ‘She built it last year to reflect the cultural integration that she’s found in her business. Keeps adding raw material as when. And did I tell you she loves soft, juicy human bones of arrogant tantriks who steal from her?’ ‘They add to her personal bed.’ ‘Grr, I didn’t mean to—’ ‘Don’t speak, devil manavi!’ The bharundas dragged me into a dark damp room made out of a daitya’s skull and covered with skins of various animals and sups. A fire burnt in the centre, indigo through…
