Monday Morning Rant

"...while we have developed a fair degree of confidence in matters like IT and other areas...we have consistently shown a total lack of introspection and self-esteem in the field of literature....We take all our cues from our notion of the West....We know that a book is good only when Western publishers buy it. We also know that a book that gets 500,000 dollars is only half as good as one that gets one million dollars. Why then should we attempt to cultivate our own critical faculties and rigorous standards?"
