Some post-think

Hotel Taj: icon of whose India? by Gnani Sankaran

As the Terrors Die: The Terror of the Aftermath by Biju Mathew

Update, 2 Dec:

Defeat or victory determined by response by Amitav Ghosh

Ghosh too wants us to stop invoking 9/11. My only quibble with him is that, as Sankaran points out, the attacks were not confined to the "upscale parts of the city". Though the media very well created that impression. When I read online that hospitals had been attacked, I messaged my brother, shaken to the core. Since our television channels were focusing elsewhere, he didn't know this and was shocked.

The monster in the mirror by Arundhati Roy
