Reasons to be here

One of the reasons I continue to return to India for work is because my (rather excessive) idealism is well suited for this environment — you can still be a revolutionary here, at least in your political rhetoric, and get some respect. This is an image of a wall I see on the way to work, where Thirumavalavan, the leader of a Dalit (lower caste) political party has styled himself a la Che. I love this image.

    And let’s not forget Dr. Ambedkar – note no need to style like Che there.
