i have a lot of thoughts. but the problem is i dont have access to the “best” networks – i am not an ivy league graduate, not one of those harvard alumni who get paid a million dollars to speak before an audience for like, 20 minutes. but i want my voice to be heard. perhaps in the eyes of the gods of the academe, i am just a self-proclaimed intellectual from the “south” – today’s euphemism for the “third world”. i want to blog because in a world where the third world is marginalized, my hope is still pure. i believe in a future where everything will be a lot, lot more ok. even for the most marginalized of voices in my part of the world.
