comment made in a facebook group by shantiveer kaul:
" Kashmir has become the whore of academia - subject to merchandizing and ‘intellectual summation-characterization’ of essential reductionists/ fake modernists; Spivak spewing senors and senoras at a safe 'university-funded' distance – recording only the passing of a minor, or the making of a major academic event; who spout Deleuze and Guattari at the drop of a bonnet, deconstruct pointless death into a reading of martyrdom that can be packaged and sold at Oxford if not at Harrods and who co-opt our brightest young minds to become their articled clerks. We live in sad times."
