The word Ayan has its aura fixed in the realism of the Sangam age. Not long ago, Zizek remarked that the “the fetish is the embodiment of a lie that enables us to endure an unbearable truth. 4 Invoking the Zizekian notion of fetish, one can come closer to the post-colonial problematic of Ayan as the title of a masala Tamil film. The film Ayan has its unrealistic grandeur as the real (the truth) and claims to be realistic in terms of the title and plot as the fetish (the lie).

was arrested in Thailand. He’s been arrested before and released by corrupt Thai officials, so I’ll wait and see. However, if so this is a very good thing. He is a major financier of terrorism wanted by Sri Lanka, India and Interpol, most notably for involvement in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi. The weapons and funds he’s procured have funded more suicide bombings than Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Al Qaeda combined, along with other violence. Seemingly moderate blogging aside, this is not a good guy. However, I don’t agree with his blogging either.

His grasping fingers, I can't help noticing, are bejeweled, like those of the rap artists one sees on MTV videos. Lost in the chaotic exchange, and now rolling on the littered ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

"Oh yes, in my opinion it is fact. "We see it every day," the official says. The Obama administration is clearly ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
