here’s the link to the interview you gave at HMTV .(hope it works) Interesting discussion, ,especially on Pakistan.
Yes, you should have spent a few more days in Hyderabad to get the real experience 🙂 . And whoever gave you that description of haleem doesn’t quite enjoy the Ramadan delicacy! There is always another time and we look forward to you coming back here during Ramadan. Hope you enjoyed the lectures here.
Here is the youtube link for the HMTV interview.
I am disappointed that the interviewer does not seem to be well prepared. But that is just the way Indian media is, not meritocratic enough.
I wanted to attend at least one of Prof Mead’s events in Hyd and have an opportunity to have few minutes of chat with him. But I could not do this time. Probably next time.
This is fascinating and has given me a lot to think about, thank you. I look forward to report #2.
WRM, this essay plus Hyderabad interview give real time vista on concerns beyond Western borders – awaiting your return stateside.
WRM, I find this travel journalism refreshing and I like it better than MSM product because you are not simply ‘preparing material for the people,formally known as the audience – as Jeff Jarvis puts it. You also are inviting a discussion on your account of your experiences.which we readers have a a fair idea is an honestly reported reaction that doesn’t hide your agendas, nor gloss over tricky issues like the task young visa clerks must perform. You make admirably apparent the differences between overly curated 20th century institutionalized journalism and 21st century independent journalism. Bravo!
