Who says they don’t make movies about the positive sides of terrorism? Belgium movie: Hop.
One of my fav. classes at Chicago was with Chalapathy…so it is quite awesome that his book is out and drawing comparisons to D.R. Nagaraj and Ashis Nandy [thx pdcs]

One of the imaginary courses I want to teach in the near-future would be a course on Empires and their native agents. Writing my paper for the recent conference kinda crystallized the desire and reading Dipeshda’s introduction to the Bernard Cohn Omnibus was a real inspiration.
In the interest of such a course [and the further interest of not having much to say for the rest of the week], I am putting up a picture taken by the late Henri Cartier-Bresson in Delhi in 1948 of Nehru and the Mountbattens [Here is the link to the big version]. As they say that pictures speak a thousand words, say a few about this one, gentle readers.
A for V for Vendetta.
