India Emerges, Yet Again

My friend and blogging buddy, Priya, has published several enlightening posts about India, her homeland. After reading each of those posts on her blog, Partial View, I’ve found that the more I learn, the more questions I have.

I don’t think I’m alone.

India is still so strangely unfamiliar to most of us who haven’t been there. Our impressions have been formed by movies, cartoons, stand-up comedians, and a lot of imaginative gap-filling. The result, at least for me, has been little more than a caricature. And a billion people — with their long history, dazzling culture, agonizing struggles, and proud achievements — deserve more than that.

Here’s a link to Priya’s post, Walking into the Jet Age.
