ali's world

The exhibition was great and the book is now available online and should be in major bookstores across India in a few days. Rahul has a review up already. Many thanks to those who helped spread the word (especially zigzackly!)

Check it out, everyone -- it's more than just a bunch of (amazingly) "pretty" pictures; it's a story that needs telling.

All over the place

Earlier this week, attending a dissertation proposal defense, I looked around the room. The person on the hot seat was a Brazilian. The two co-chairs were Dutch and Thai. The three other committee members were from India, Benin via Canada, and (yes) American. And the lone spectator, the candidate's junior picking up tips while giving moral support, was Japanese.

And I thought -- another little reason why I love my job.
