With this kind of public research methodology, i think ritika is making 
a very critical intervention in our research ethos. A minor mphil in a 
university departments begins a lively process of being an attractor for 
people to think and build critical resources togather. otherwise all 
these mphils gets lost and rarely appears into any public conversations. 
looking forward to more reserach blogs and building of public critical 
resources and conversations.
