Arundhati Roy
Simultaneous Progression and Regression
printer friendly version
India lives in several centuries at the same time. Somehow
we manage to progress and regress simultaneously. As a
nation we age by pushing outward from the middle --
adding a few centuries on either end of the extraordinary
c.v. We greaten like the maturing head of a hammerhead
shark with eyes looking in diametrically opposite directions.

(from "The Ladies Have Feelings, So ... Shall We Leave it to
the Experts?" -- based on a talk given at Hampshire College,
Amherst, Massachusetts, 2001.)
