I was at Saravana Bhavan today, having Pongal and Vadai for breakfast. A young man walked up to my table and asked me if I was Nilu and whether I write this blog. I have now decided, that was the required stimuli.
While the other contributors, when they do write, will entertain and enthrall you with their writing, I will attempt to do the following: define epistemology, its source, its extent and limits. Then draw the parameters of definition into political thought and explore the plausibility or the lack of it. Of the obvious.
I have also decided, I can do this while Amit Varma and Dilip D’Souza cannot. By the way, I have also concluded, Dilip is much more tolerable than Amit — at least his prose is worth reading.
PS: The title of this blog annoys me. It’s silly, immature and cliched. Not to mention, tiring. New ideas invited.
