Very heartening to view the faces of news readers of bygone years. All did their duty of presenting the news in a highly respectable and pleasing manner. I used to relish enjoy the DD news hour almost every night. Special mention should be made about Neeti Ravindran who has graced the screen and radio with her mellifluous,assertive voice enthralling the almost never missed when she was on radio or has given her the rare talent of graceful appearance and pleasant presentation of God the Almighty grant her abundant grace in the days to come.
I would say, as a friend, not a would-be patron, to feminists and black activists, to not worry about what any – and mostly a white guy – speaks about the past (especially since “science” has always had this gentlemen’s club thing), or at least have a likely white guy discourse ahead to not be vexed or disappointed. Well i’m not naive, of course discourses matters in the social world too much – even in the science world, for the great part of it that is influenced by society biases. It matters for your (and/or of all of us, concerned people) struggle and you should keep going, yes. But this does not would have power to affect your personal convictions or simply the truth, which i started talking about and you all should know well. Specially the text above statements – in words and pictures, so wrong in so many ways, both scientific and normatively speaking! – although i do not disregard parts of real information i’m taking from it.
