In pursuit of my PhD (in Computational Science), I actually have access to a plethora of academic literature on India related matters. The papers range from heart rending descriptions of struggles to conquer caste to Shah Rukh Khan’s efficiency at being an (almost) pan-Indian advertising vehicle. I think they can add to our understanding of contemporary India as it goes through a period of rapid change.
I will periodically review some of these papers and put down my thoughts and critiques of them. I will also talk about news and editorials from media outlets. Comments are always welcome but please be civil.
