“Hill Station” is a new story by Madhuri Vijay. On the occasion of the publication of the story in Atlantic, Vijay and Katherine Hu, the magazine’s deputy editor, discussed the story via email. Their conversation has been lightly edited for clarity.


Katherine Hu: Your short story “Hill Station” features an unhappy marriage where both parents surrendered to their middle-aged destinies. The detached tone of the story seems to echo their displeasure. Why did you tell the story this way?

Madhuri Vijay: The tone, in this case, evolved naturally. And while I don’t think anesthetized syntax is necessary to write about depressed or lonely people (just look at the morbid joy of [Ottessa] The narrators of Moshfegh, or the filthy exuberance of [Philip Roth’s] Portnoy), it seemed appropriate to keep the prose tightly controlled for this story, and also to deny it some of the usual narrative release valves: humor, extended dialogue, long flights of description. It allowed me to exaggerate the pressure under which the family exists, even during ostensible leisure moments.

Hu: At the heart of the story is a dissatisfied mother. She is described as lacking the “burning urgency of motherly love”. The far field, your first novel of 2019, also centers on a mother who hides her inner complexity. What attracts you to this type of character, and to the mother-daughter relationship?

Vijay: I don’t think I’m particularly drawn to the mother-daughter relationship. I think, however, that mothers and daughters often embody the kind of restlessness to which I a m attracted, and which can be summed up in a handful of subjects: obligation, resentment, pity, the fragility of the self and, above all, cruelty. I am fascinated by cruelty in all its forms – cruelty as negligence, as sadism, as self-protection, as misguided kindness, as accident and, increasingly, as righteousness. But I am perfectly happy to write about these subjects using whatever is at hand.

Hu: This story takes place near Bangalore, where you were born and raised. How do you choose the lines to blur between reality and fiction? Is there a risk in borrowing from one’s own lived experience?

Vijay: For the most part, the story takes place in Kodaikanal, a hill station about 500 kilometers south of where I grew up. I visited Kodaikanal a few times as a kid, but other than a vague sense of setting, I didn’t borrow much from those tours. As for the blurred lines: I admit that I don’t see the work of writing in these terms, as a simple exercise in balancing the true and the false. No writer’s mind is so perfectly bifurcated, with Reality confined on one side, Fiction to the other, and a line in the middle that she has to decide how and when to cross. It’s the same for me. I regard my life and my experiences as sources of material, as distorted and untrustworthy as any document in a library. They should only be used to the extent required by the work, and then with the greatest care and linguistic rigor possible. As for the risks, they are the same as they have ever been. On the page: badly written. In life: pissing people off. Maybe one day I’ll regret saying that, but I’m much more afraid of the first than the second.

Hu: Two animal motifs are woven throughout the story: the gentle white rabbit and the murderous tigers of different stripes. How do these animals function in the story? When choosing patterns, how do you avoid clichés while reinforcing their symbolic value?

Vijay: We always hope to avoid the cliché, but it is never a certainty. One of the ways to avoid it is to upset the values ​​with which these symbols are normally associated. Rabbits and tigers seem to indicate the age-old confrontation between innocence and danger, but in this story they are tied to entirely different notions.

Hu: You spoke of fiction as an “imperfect medium” that allows us to honor “the nuance and complexity” of the world. What is the purpose of your fiction for you? How does this relate to the purpose of fiction more broadly?

Vijay: I’m mortified to have ever said something so pompous, so allow me to replace it with something equally pompous but hopefully less mundane. I find it strange the ease with which certain authors speak of the objective of their work, how quick they are, in interviews and on social networks, to emphasize the social or political utility of their fiction. Much more honest in my opinion is Zadie Smith’s sheepish admission: Writing? It’s something to do. For me, it’s something to do, but sometimes it’s a little more than that. Like all art forms, writing is an act that, in its purest form, serves no discernible purpose – neither social justice, nor fighting climate change, nor self-improvement, nor representing one’s community. (It may be weaponized to serve any or all of these, but the resulting art is necessarily mangled.) On the best days, the writing is, quite simply, itself: self-contained, untricky, full game. And for that reason, it is sublime.

Please don’t confuse me. Sublimity is not my natural state. Like most writers, I am riddled with envy, self-reprobation, and an inordinate amount of bitterness. All I’m saying is if I declare, here and now, that my handwriting is for something, an identifiable, limited and finite social goal, then I will lose the possibility – fleeting, weak and elusive that it already is – of knowing this sublimity from time to time. And I’m just not ready to take that risk. My work would be poorer, and in the end so would I.

BART has replaced concrete ties near Pleasant Hill station that were damaged during the derailment on that portion of the track in June. We have been operating reduced speed trains in this part of the system since the incident. For the safety of the work crew, service near Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Center Station will be reduced to one lane for this work on the following Sundays:

Area cyclists should plan to add 15-20 minutes to their rides on these Sundays.

The work will also require three non-consecutive weekends in October and November when track crews will need all the track space to carry out these repairs. On subsequent weekends there will be no train service between Pleasant Hill and Concord stations. Instead, free buses provided by County Connection will replace trains between Pleasant Hill and Concord:

  • October 15-16
  • October 29-30
  • November 12-13

Area riders should expect 30-minute weekend delays on the bus deck. To avoid the bus bridge, riders can start westbound trips at Walnut Creek or Lafayette. Both stations have had ample weekend parking throughout the pandemic.

Passengers can track service impacts, including the latest real-time departure information, by downloading the official BART app.

BALTIMORE, September 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the South of Baltimore 7 Coalition (SB7), a non-profit organization working on behalf of South of Baltimore communities, provided support for the Superconducting Maglev (the “Maglev”) high-speed passenger rail project and its developer, Baltimore-Washington Rapid Rail (BWRR). Specifically, SB7 supported the proposed Maglev station at the top of the Maryland Transit Administration Cherry Hill Light Rail station.

A Community Benefits Agreement is provided to detail BWRR’s activities with, and contributions to, South of Baltimore communities. The developer looks forward to working closely with communities as the federally mandated NEPA process is completed, particularly following Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) project approval and selection of cherry hill than the Baltimore station. SB7 and BWRR have committed to working together in the coming weeks on further details.

“SB7 has been successful in engaging in initiatives that deliver results in South of Baltimore

and we want Maglev to be part of that,” said Michael Middleton, Chairman and President of the SB7 Coalition and Executive Director of the Cherry Hill Development Corporation. “We also want our government officials to support us, including the FRA who completes the federal review process and selects cherry hill for Baltimore station. This would greatly increase the attention of South of Baltimore region by generating opportunities for economic development, housing and entertainment,” he added.

“I am extremely honored by SB7’s critical support for a South of Baltimore station in cherry hillwhich will bring large-scale investment, access to approximately 200 permanent station jobs, several thousand more jobs to build and operate the service, MBE/WBE contracts, workforce development, and so much more,” said wayne rogers, Chairman and CEO of BWRR. “And I’m thrilled to be connecting with the communities represented by SB7 long before construction begins on the largest transportation infrastructure project in from Maryland the story.”

As a preferred site for BWRR, the proposed station at cherry hill builds on recent strategic decisions to attract additional resources South of Baltimore as a major destination. Notable initiatives such as Port Covington and Reimagine Middle Branch are among other projects underway that will help redefine the future of the region. When construction of the Maglev is complete, its timeline should align well with the myriad of ongoing efforts.

“Our communities are looking for great partners and great opportunities. Over the past few years, we’ve learned that the Maglev Project offers both. We can work with BWRR on issues that are important to us, like more STEM education, employment, transportation and other opportunities for our residents,” shared Pam OlivierChairman of the SB7 Transportation Committee and Director of Lakeland Community Association Partnership, Inc.

About the SB7 Coalition

The SB7 Coalition was born of an almost unparalleled partnership between six community organizations located in South of Baltimore and the private development entity which sought to build a 26-acre site across Middle Branch, Port Covington. During two years of intensive negotiations, fact-finding and consideration of best practices across the country, representatives of the communities of brooklyn, cherry hill, Curtis BayLakeland, Mount Winans, and Westport, along with representatives from the Port Covington Development Team, agreed to a framework for funding priority community projects and collaboration to advance an ongoing partnership. The resulting Community Benefits Agreement encompasses the six neighborhoods represented by their community organizations:

  1. Concerned Citizens for a Better Brooklyn
  2. Cherry Hill Community Coalition
  3. Curtis Bay Community Association
  4. Partnership with the Lakeland Community Association
  5. Mount Winans Community Association
  6. Westport neighborhood association

In the months following the execution of the Community Benefits Agreement, it became apparent that a more formal corporate structure was needed to manage the flow of funds, joint programs and fundraising efforts as well as to support member organisations. SB7 was incorporated in May 2017 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

A WORCESTER woman has spoken out about the lack of disabled access at Shrub Hill station.

Lynda Wood, who is currently awaiting a hip replacement, recently visited the station to say goodbye to her brother and his partner after their visit.

Due to the lack of handicap access for Lynda, she was unable to say goodbye as she had to stay on the other side of the platform.

Lynda asks where funding went for the government’s Access For All campaign, in 2013 where Shrub Hill Station received £1.5m to improve access for people with disabilities.

However, a West Midlands Railway spokesperson said improvements were underway.

She said: “My question is where are the promised lifts and what happened to the £1.5million?

“I find it outrageous that in 2022 people with disabilities still have to cross train tracks.”

Her sister-in-law is also awaiting knee replacement surgery, with staff expected to help her through the lines.

Lynda said: “On Sunday August 28 I took my brother and his wife there to catch the train to Paddington on their way back to Australia.

“My sister-in-law is awaiting knee replacement surgery and, as you can imagine without an elevator, she had to walk through the lines, assisted by a member of staff.

“I’m expecting a hip replacement myself so I stayed on the other side and almost said goodbye to them as two trains were in the way at the same time.

“I was told I could have gone to Foregate station, but you can’t park there for a while.”

READ MORE: New lift will improve access to Worcester Shrub Hill station

In 2019, it was reported that the station was back online for a further £500,000 of Access for All’s £300 million funding to provide the lift.

A West Midlands Railway spokesperson said: “Ensuring the railway is accessible to all is a priority for us.

“We are working closely with Network Rail who are preparing to install lifts at Shrub Hill so passengers can step-free access to each platform.

“This complex project is currently in its final design phase and work is expected to begin next year.

“Until the works are complete, all passengers requiring step-free access can continue to use nearby Worcester Foregate Street to access rail services.”
