  Powells.com Interviews - Pico Iyer
Iyer: I think I say in the book that a foreigner tends to see paradise where a native sees purgatory, insofar as a foreigner is in a privileged position and has more appreciative eyes, undimmed by familiarity.
Iyer: Ishiguro says he's so conscious of an international audience that he deliberately fashions his novels in a way that's easy to translate, and without topical references, because he knows his readers are going to meet him as much in Norwegian or Cantonese or Arabic as in English.
Iyer: It's perhaps a pity that you have to wait until the last chapter to go there, but that chapter is a conscious attempt to make sense of everything that's gone before it, to give a counterpoint and a perspective.

  Iyer Information
Iyer women have their own ceremonies such as the one at the time of attaining puberty (mostly a private family affair) and regular prayers that they organize for the welfare of their family.
During the ancient and mediaeval periods, Iyers (and Brahmins in general) rose in prominence in Indian society, primarily due to their emphasis on spiritual life and scholarship, particularly in terms of their expertise in the Vedas and the attendant religious rituals.
Traditional Iyer women, both married and unmarried wear a "pottu" (red dot, also known as kumkum/sindoor/bindi) on their forehead and married women always wear the mangalsutra or "thali" as it is called in Tamil.

 Review | The Global Soul by Pico Iyer
Iyer loves to find microcosms within the culture, from which he draws conclusions for the entire world in a manner which is both bold and a little foolhardy.
In some ways Iyer appears to be from another century (the 19th, to be exact), so that he seems an odd choice to peer into the global future.
Perhaps if Iyer could stop trying so hard to find himself, if he were more at home in his own skin, his potential for real depth of insight would have a chance to blossom.

 The Hindu : Which Mrs. Iyer?
Iyer's reaction was to thrust her child on Raja's shoulder and when the goons asked him about his identity she said he was Mr.
Iyer, but a utilitarian, functional one, wherein she didn't want to lose out on a man who was helping her with her child, and who, till that point, had been the only one in the bus to do so.
Iyer's motives in saving Raja's life are poignant at this juncture in history when many of us are wondering why such a large number of people, many from the educated middle class, joined hands in the genocide and murder and disenfranchisement of thousands of innocent Muslims in the State of Gujarat.

 Like his genre-bending music, pianist knows no borders - The Boston Globe
The key to all three effects is rhythm, which Iyer establishes by means of vamps and cyclical forms, rolling the keys like waves in a steady wind.
As Iyer's roiling sound propels Mahanthappa's saxophone over the turbulence, his soaring melodic style redolent of John Coltrane, the two display the sort of intuitive connection that produces great improvised music.
Iyer is using jazz -- the American music par excellence -- to reimagine his American identity.

 Honorable Justice Shri. V.R. Krishna Iyer [Former Judge, Supreme Court] - The living legend
Rama Iyer had seven children, the first of him was Venkateswaran, while the second born was Krishnan.

That puissant Iyer stream still flows on, regardless of age, and thus he has become a national institution for the Indian victims to reach and fight for justice.

 PALGHAT MRIDANGAM MANI IYER
Sri Viswanatha Iyer was gifted in the art of mridangam by a natural flair fostered by intelligent listening to the vaadhya played by some of the great vidwans of that time.
Sri Viswanatha Iyer took great fancy for young Mani who was then playing nimbly on the instrument and used to take the budding genius to his house and make him play along with him.
After playing for a little while, Sri Viswanatha Iyer called Mani (who was keenly listening in the audience), to the stage and gave him the mridangam to continue for the rest of the katha, which, of course, he did to the appreciation of one and all.

 Pico Iyer
Iyer says the book was handed over to the publishers a short time before September 11 and is not influenced by the cataclysmic event in New York that fateful day.
Unlike expatriate Indians, Iyer is one lucky writer who is not bogged down by the visceral and often painful urge to find ones roots.

 The Seattle Times: Travel: 'Sun After Dark': Pico Iyer's revelatory journeys of the mind and spirit
Iyer brings that same startling freshness to his accounts of travel in Bolivia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Bali, Tibet, Easter Island, Haiti and what he calls "my parents' India" (Iyer's parents emigrated to Oxford, England, where Iyer was born).
Bolivia was where Iyer went after Sept. 11, 2001, "to get away from a world that was preoccupied with the war between the future and the past." The country's capital, La Paz, he writes, "seemed to sit outside all such ideas...
Minor quibbles: Iyer is surely toying with the reader when he says that university town Oxford "is often known as the center of England's largest motor works — Great Britain's Detroit, if you like." And he's just plain wrong when saying you fly west from California to get to Easter Island.

 Praise for Vijay Iyer's Music
Iyer's own recordings suggest an ardent student of late-60's jazz -- which, in fact, he is. But on closer examination the rhythmic cycles of the South Indian music he absorbed as a child begin to appear.
Iyer, who sees "the focus on rhythmic detail and improvisation" as a bridge between jazz and South Indian music, often builds suspense around a rhythmic cadence known as a tihai.
Iyer's playing manages to be understated and explosive at the same time -- a sonic tapestry that is full of invention and surprise.

 Salon Travel | Writers We Love: Pico Iyer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Iyer has written five books -- including "The Lady and the Monk," his crystalline account of a year in Japan; the novel "Cuba and the Night"; and two collections of essays and articles, "Falling Off the Map" and "Tropical Classical." All of them astonish, delight and inform.
But today I am rereading "Video Night," Iyer's first book, because the perceptions are so extraordinarily fresh -- and because they remind me, on this gray, breezy, autumnal morning, of the September day 22 years ago when I landed, heart in my throat, in Asia for the first time.
By the time of Iyer's travels, the process of cultural crossbreeding had accelerated, to be sure, but his words bring vividly back to me the Asia I was discovering: a place of prayer flags and dusty squares, monks and mendicants, temples and brothels, epiphanies and perplexities, banana pancake breakfasts and Lonely Planet nights.

 WAG: Pico Iyer's The Global Soul
Lacking Rybczynski's centralizing focus on architecture, Iyer often uses himself and his equally multi-national (or perhaps post-national) friends as his points of reference--perhaps not a great tradeoff, but given his background, it's justifiable as an essay device, if not a scientifically accurate one.
Iyer's friend who carries a veritable card catalog of around-the-world phone numbers is hardly representative of the rest of us and really can't be used as more than an impressionistic suggestion of how extreme the 'global soul' syndrome might become for the rest of us.
On a more troubling note, one can't shake the feeling that Iyer is a little skittish, with all his constant flitting among his exhaustively catalogued examples; 'restless' would be a charitable word for Iyer's narrative style.

Pianist-composer Vijay Iyer amplifies that tangle of anger, pain, and motion with a spinning-wheel score for jazz-rock septet: roiling outbreaks of fusion, lusty sighs of brass, jolts of electro hip-hop.
VIJAY IYER was recently described in The Village Voice as "the most commanding pianist and composer to emerge in recent years." The son of Indian immigrants, he is a largely self-taught creative musician grounded in the American jazz lexicon and drawing from a range of traditions and information systems.
Iyer holds a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Yale College and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Technology and the Arts from the University of California at Berkeley.
