Hi Achirri,

Thanks for a note. Well, i might not contribute something at present, the reason is that i am working on a book manuscript on ethnography of Nepal's Maoist movement and that is supposed to be published next year. By the way you may look at my recent writing which published in a Kolkata based journal. The below is the link;

Would like to share in forthcoming days. Would like to know what is yours current work on.

Hello Iris,

That's been long I haven't stopped here - I've been so snowed over with my coursework.
The e-mail is An attachment would do.

Hope your work is going great!

Hi Achirri, sorry for taking so long to reply, can you send me your email again, the inbox seems to have misplaced it somehow...

Hello Achirri, thanks for the push - but at this point I have never written any ethnography myself and thus it would be helpful for me to read the discussions. I am about to start about to get started on my first ethnographic writing and may have questions/discussion points soon... Till then - i hope to learn for all you guys :)

I liked 'mangling' too, of course.

I like your poem about Levi-Strauss: is it mangling or bricolage?

Hi Achirri,
Thanks for your interest in the group "human and non-human animals".
Hope you can contribute to the debate.
