I tried reading English literature during my undergraduate. I did not enjoy the syllabus much; most of the readings were of British authors.
I lost interest in English literature as a discipline during my Masters. I began to read books and authors who mostly emerged in areas of critical tensions with the disciplinary boundaries. I have imagined to have understood some of the writings by Immanuel Wallerstein, Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall and Walter Benjamin.
This lack of direction during Masters helped me to explore some questions about social hierarchy, religious contestations and rivalry among Muslims in Malabar.
Now, as a graduate student, I am greatly interested in questions of anthropology, particularly with reference to religion.
Some of the books that I loved reading are The Story about a Real Man, Gad Fly, The Gambler. I am a lover of Dostoevsky’s writings. I have read many of his books.
