Very Significant Half-Coolie

It must be sad being Jamal Mohammed, or being like anyone who thinks like Jamal Mohammed. I follow the writings of several columnists here who would be described as Indian and Male. I have for a long time hoped that from time to time...not every week...they would analyse the Indian male in this space. And i refer specifically to the Indian male because UWI has an entire institute dedicated towards studying the Indian female. I know most of the researchers very well.

Since these columnists have for the most part avoided writing about themselves directly, but reveal themselves in their writing regularly, I instead rely on Naipaul. He remains for me the most honest critic of this place. Yes he's got biases. Who doesn't? But at least he open about his biases too.
