Smitha's new series on Desi Dilemmas is off to a promising start. In a podcast titled Here Come the Global Indians, she explores what the term global Indian might mean. The only thing I might disagree with is her comment that BJP style Hindu India and global India are somehow deeply intertwined. I think that the hypothesis that there is a strong correlationship between these two concepts is probably quite good, but it would be a mistake to equate one with the other. I might recommend my post about 2004 general elections in India to see what I mean in part. I will tune in to more of Desi Dilemmas to hear what Smitha has to say next.
