As i was reading 'nationalism as a Problem ...' there was the film Bombay playing (one of those 26 Jan things!!) it turned out to be an interesting juxtaposition of moments. Well coming to the article, I will confess I am still reading it. But there are striking issues of interest ... To begin the comment on 'chauvinism ... organised violence ..'; Secondly the notion of conflict as the seed to nationalism and multiple cultures nationalism tries to fit into a universal jacket; Somethings that I had not really thought about before is the transition from local pre-industrial cultures to a central and new and defined culture, post industrialisation. This seems to me worth exploring to understand various situations of culture and cultural conflict that we as a 'nation' are facing at various points. The question raised by the text itself - what alternatives did (say) india have to the european model of the 'nation'?? is strong and would love to explore it. If not 'industrialisation' and 'modernisation' how would have 'we' defined 'progress'?? I am sure there is more to discover in these essays... this are just my prelimanary questions. Thanks, Kaiwan
