Reading Ray

Talking about the stereotypical depiction of India in Western literature and films he writes, “India remained a nebulous entity to the West; a vast amorphism that refused to take on a semblance of the familiar… The few films about India from the West only helped to strengthen this feeling… And once again, in novels too this ignorance is brazenly flaunted. For a land where cows are holy and God is a phallus, anything will pass for the truth.”
