I teach at New Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University
as a professor in the school of language, literature, and culture studies.
My own specialization is Indian English, postcolonial literature,
criticism, and cultural studies. I’m also associated with Samvad India
Foundation, a nonprofit trust set up to promote, among other things,
cross-cultural dialogue. I’ve been a part of the Alliance since 1998,
having been introduced to it by my friend Siddhartha. I’ve worked with
Allies on various activities of the Alliance including the geo-cultural
process in Asia-Pacific, the Charter of Human Responsibilities with Edith
Sizoo, and the China India intercultural dialogue with Gustavo Marin and
Yifeng Zhou. I welcome all friends and Allies coming to India to take part
in the WSF and look forward to meeting old and new friends.
