Day 1 of the ordeal

May 24, 2007

How does one answer an essay question on Periyar EV Ramasamy?. If one breathes fiery anti-brahmin rhetoric and the paper goes to a brahmin evaluator one is done for. If one goes vazha vazha kozha kozha on the anti-brahmin parts of periyarian ideology and the paper goes to a proper DMK/DK type for evaluation one gets a raw deal again. indha jathi thondaravu thanga mudilada sami!! examlayum vandhu kazhuthu arukkudhu. To be on the safe side, i wrote inflammatory paragraphs on the anti hindi agitation and escaped.

Today's paper was titled "Intellectual History of Tamil Nadu". The reading materials supplied dwell heavily upon the justice party (aka South Indian Liberal Federation). 2 whole units out of the total 10 have been dedicated to the luminaries of the Justice party. I suspect this is because the founder of the university was himself a Justice party perum pulli.

Thankfully tomorrow's paper is on international relations. Since the previous three indian generations have been brought up on staple diet of communist propaganda, i can safely write hagiographies of chairman mao and fidel castro without the fear of riling any right wing evaluator.
