Summary and Info
The issue of Alif explores a considerable variety of themes and problems that exist in contemporary South Asia, offereing perspectives on poetry and fiction, popular culture and mythmaking, as well as the enduring resonance of Gandhian rhetoric and philosophy. Despite the undeniably serious problems that afflict the people of South Asia, there is also much to celebrate after half a century of independence. There is a pervasive sense that the subcontinent has finally emerged from lingering shadows of the British Raj, assesting a new and ascendant identity, through art, literature, music, film, and other forms of popular culture.
