"The Terror That Is Man"

by Shaj Mohan

As we can see, men are converted not merely by the conversion of their faith. In fact, man-substances are converted into revolutionary contagions when a thought is converted into another in the case of the Buddha, a containment of matter is exchanged for another in the case of Galileo, or when a problem is converted into a technology.  The invention of new baptisms is again evident around us—Anonymous, FEMEN, synthetic biology, Pussy Riot, Kiss of Love movement in Kerala, bionics. But is the essence of man available to all men for these baptisms to form new contagions?

"They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?"

by ALok Rai

"Shaktiman, the mare whose leg was amputated after an assault by political  activists, is a symbol of our broken republic – a permanent and searing reminder of the dark forces that now threaten to consume us and our possible futures."
