    She was previously the film critic at the Village Voice and Salon, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in criticism in There have been worse years in U. You would need to be over to remember the devastation of World War I and the flu pandemic ; roughly 90 to have a sense of the economic deprivation wrought by the Great Depression ; and in your 80s to retain any memory of World War II and its horrors. The rest of us have had no training wheels for this—for the recurrence of natural disasters that confirm just how much we have betrayed nature; for an election contested on the basis of fantasy; for a virus that originated, possibly, with a bat only to upend the lives of virtually everyone on the planet and end the lives of roughly 1.

    My job as a film critic is to look at movies and tease out their connections both to the greater world and to our lives. It was, in addition to being wrought with pain, maddeningly mundane, the routine of the everyday turned against us. Our most debilitating threat this year was a sense of helplessness, and it ran unchecked. We confronted the unspeakable, only to be deviously reassured that none of it was a big deal.

    America will be great again, if only everybody would just get back to work—and though a mask is optional, wearing one sure makes you look dumb. We spent countless hours stuck at home and connected to the often untrustworthy hive mind of social media, wringing our hands and pointing out injustices, only to end up feeling even more paralyzed by the very people who are meant to protect us. The enemy sought to divide us, and succeeded.

    Helplessness met its evil twin, a partner in crime that would only magnify its mad power: isolation. In March, when major U. Hunger became a major theme of , presenting challenges even in countries with the means to assuage it.

    At the same time, parents across the world, no matter their means, hustled to take care of—and homeschool—their kids.

    Meanwhile, essential workers, from grocery-store clerks to transportation professionals to hospital nurses and physicians, continued to show up for duty. At a designated time each evening, many of us leaned out of our windows, armed with pots and wooden spoons or just our oddball cacophony of human voices, and raised a ruckus in support of those workers.

    It was the least we could do, at a time when we had no idea what to do. That began in March, the onset of a period in which most of us felt encased in our own lonely snow globes, looking out at a world that seemed to be falling apart. Realistically, the world had started falling apart long before: horrific Australian bushfires had been raging for months and would not be quelled until midyear—just in time for wildfire season in the American West, with its own brazen cycle of devastation.

    Pictures from either of these scenes—unsettling orange skies in normally paradisiacal parts of California, aerial views of doomy plumes of smoke covering the Australian landscape—would feel apocalyptic in any year.

    But in , with so many of us hunkered down inside, it was particularly alarming to reckon with the fragility of the natural world.

    To think of it burning away—not least because we humans have failed it with our poor stewardship—invites despair. Because face it: humans can often be terrible, making rash, selfish decisions at best and murdering one another at worst. Through most of , to be locked inside and looking out was to feel peculiarly powerless. And even as we grew to feel more remote from the world as individuals, it also seemed that individual nations had begun to curl in on themselves, motivated by misguided notions of their own power and self-sufficiency.

    In the worst months of , we were a nation that could barely take care of itself, let alone help anyone else through a crisis. And democracy—not a badge you can earn, Scout-style, but a practice and a discipline that needs careful tending—came to seem wobbly and fragile even in places that have long professed to believe in it. The pages on this strange calendar just kept turning, with the menace of the pandemic bleeding through all of it. And in May, the killing of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis ignited righteous anger not just across the country but around the world.

    The ruthlessness of that act revived attention to similar outrages earlier in the year, particularly the killings of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. It also reminded us how often, throughout history, Black people had suffered similar injustices, with no recourse, no means of changing the status quo. And then in August, even with the whole world watching, police in Kenosha, Wis.

    The toxic traditions of injustice and inequality in America are no secret. A sequence of tragic events finally caused more white people to wake up. Whether this heightened awareness of the racism that has plagued our country since its founding translates into actual change remains to be seen. After a year of so many changes, will we change radically too? We learned a lot in —but what, exactly, did we learn? The bromides are already flowing freely: We slowed down.

    We learned what was important. We played board games and did jigsaw puzzles and really talked and listened to our children. All of those are undoubtedly good things, and we nod in solemn agreement when our neighbors enumerate those little blessings. But do any of them capture the microtexture of what our lives were like this year? How lucky we were to be able to do that, at least!

    When museums finally reopened, carefully limiting capacity, we were able to reacquaint ourselves with paintings we love, with golden objects that had been placed in the tombs of kings 3, years ago, with vessels that our ancestors used for simple but essential tasks like toting water from here to there.

    To step close and examine a year-old brushstroke connects you with the human who put it there. It bears remembering that the Renaissance came into being even as the Black Death decimated much of Europe. Our lives may be hard—this week, this month, this year—but look at what others did during eras of hardship.

    The trail of vitality and beauty they left behind is enough to make us cry, and sometimes we do—we can give them that much, at least. All manner of amusements have been streamed right into our homes, some of them quite wonderful.

    Because nearly all of our movie blockbusters and big year-end spectacles were canceled, we spent more time watching stories about human beings talking to one another rather than chasing down a bunch of magic stones from a bejeweled glove. But even so, very little of what we watched helped us make sense of this moment. We give up and watch The Office again, though there are worse things. Because they were waiting for the invention of the electric guitar.

    This virus attacks the weakest and most vulnerable and has thus disproportionately affected certain portions of the population. When the U. COVID death toll reached ,, the magnitude of that number seemed unimaginable.

    Now it pushes toward ,, though the promise of several vaccines at least offers hope. The virus is a blanket problem that hits all of us in painfully personal, targeted ways. Meanwhile, our President himself contracted the virus and, just days after being pumped through with steroids and experimental treatments, emerged in public—still, almost beyond doubt, contagious—to crow that if he could kick the disease, we could too.

    Somehow we patched it up with a scrap of duct tape, just in time. Will it hold? Americans are inherently optimistic. Our optimism is our most ridiculous trait, and our greatest.

    Sometimes we have to get through the darkest hour just before. The aurora bides its time.

    2020 Tested Us Beyond Measure. Where Do We Go From Here?

    Ken M Impressed! I have had many sitting-in meals here here but this time I ordered a takeaway. It was after 9 when I checked out and the stuff arrived before 10 - well impressed! And the food was up to the usual standard. The pakora are the best in Edinburgh and the lamb in the old school curry was as tender as expected. Great stuff Kahani! Saw Great service, great food, friendly staff Saturday afternoon lunch as a family of 4.

    Very good social distancing measures, clean and plenty of hand gel available. We were seated right away, staff were friendly and attentive without being too much. Kids had chicken pakora and chips which they absolutely loved, both plates cleared and a wee ice cream for after, no surprise that was cleared too. Adults shared the platter starts which was aloo and Chana chaat, crispy chilli squid and chicken pakora. Aloo and chana chaat absolutely delicious, perfectly spiced, all just yum.

    The crispy chilli squid was my favourite out of the starters lovely crisp batter and the squid was super fresh.

    Chicken pakora beautifully spiced and perfect flavoured batter without being spicy. For mains we had butter chicken and a lamb Karachi with garlic naan. Butter chicken was delicious too, lovely flavour without being spicy. Garlic naans were tasty and fresh too. Susan Cole Best Indian On a recent visit to Edinburgh we had the pleasure of eating in this restaurant.

    The whole experience was excellent. We were made to feel extremely welcome, the food was excellent and the service was impeccable. So much so that we returned the following day. The standards did not change. We were visiting during the covid times.. Old school lamb curry was delicious. Pleased to see Kahani open for business during current restrictions.

    Ravinder K Great food and service! Covid measures are clear and it felt really safe. Food was just as delicious as ever and the service was really friendly!

    Latterly had the vegetable pakora and prawn kahari, both superb. Tripadvisor rating score: 4.
