Case in point, a classified ad that appeared last month in a Mumbai tabloid: It would be like one of those free-for-download AntiVirus wonders that protect your machine from all the evil bugs out there.

|ONE| ON SUNDAY, 9 March, bad weather forced a helicopter carrying the union agriculture minister, Sharad Pawar, to make an emergency landing in Beed district, Maharashtra. Since the last week of February, central India had been battered by unseasonably strong storms—the worst in possibly a hundred years.
Hail and heavy rains had fallen across eight-tenths of the districts in the state. In a recent article titled "Figures, Configurations, Transfigurations" Edward Said suggests that contemporary postcolonial literatures express "ideas, values, emotions formerly suppressed, ignored or denigrated by, and of course in, the well-known metropolitan centers" (1).
