Nobel for Amitav Ghosh?

As a writer, sometimes I feel that I don't know what something is till I have put words to it. This is especially so nowadays when we are bombarded by visuals and images.

Amitav Ghosh gets the prestigiousGrinzane Cavour International prize
for a life dedicated to literature this year. Now,the popular perception is that every recipient of this award subsequently goes on to win the Nobel Prize for literature. Think of Nadine Gordimer, J M Coetzee, Wole Soyinka, Gunter Grass and V S Naipul who all received this award before their Nobel.
