I woke up this morning thinking of Dominance and Rebellion and wondering what the story of the slayer of Kings known as Parasurama would tell me today.
Why did the two avatars coexist in the telling of this myth?
- the one reinstating a particular form of governmentality – Rama
- and the one systematically demolishing Representatives of Authority – Parasurama
what does the schizophrenia of the moment of their co-existence tell us about the Avataric existences
in today’s Global cultures?
I am on a different sort of journey this winter break…
not hopping on a flight to Sheffield, Minneapolis or Hyderabad.
not driving down to Chicago, Milwaukee, Boston or Cleveland.
The only post I found in support is one that asks about the very same problem I am having.
of course in terms of being able to use Indic fonts on the web and in email – its WAAAY different than when I use to use Ileap and save as gif etc and put up – I think in 2001.
I can do indic scripts in facebook too.
But now writing letters via email to my Mother would have little point – her eyesight is failing too much.
Pankaj and Sridhar have started the Daaram Blog... Yay
