Ryoshi has deleted all his Tweets, and in a Medium post, has announced his departure from the crypto world. Meanwhile, the global crypto market paused its upward momentum after gaining for two straight days.
‘The translator is the traitor’, they say in Italian. Such was the distrust and paranoia in Europe for translations that scholars were executed for translating the holy word. Five centuries later, an Indian author won a major literary award in the UK and shared it with her American translator, making it an apt occasion to discuss the status of translation in world literature.
‘Like some people are driven to write, some people are driven to translate out of an urge to share something of literary value,’ says V Ramaswamy who began translating accidentally in 2005.
Literary translations are portals that open up new sights, sounds, flavours and worlds for the reader to explore and embrace the Other. But can an international prize breathe new life in a publishing world gasping for commercial success?
The International Booker Prize for Geetanjali Shree’s Ret Samadhi put the spotlight on literature and translations, but for publishers, they often fail to even provide the necessary breathing space to stay afloat. For a majority of publishing houses, both indie and big, translation work has to be subsidised.

How comical. After recent updates and announcements of two industry heavyweights for Shib MV (maybe @RyoshiResearch missed that) and everything else on the horizon after months of hard work, all I will do is laugh. #SHIB is Shib and will continue forward. https://t.co/C5BMkBtsAd
