The more I come across the RANDOMEST thesis topics, the more I curse myself for picking up something as bloody conceptually mind-fucking as a 'Postmodernist (re)evaluation of Local-Global Identity Politics and the National Imaginary'. I should have just stuck to something fun, and trivial, and not guaranteed to make me look like an IDIOT when I fail to get my point across. I should have just picked up something random, something fun, or even just plain bizarre. Something more like this:

xeb, just wanted to tell you about bilal khan that he is not from lums. he came to lums for a visit some time in 2006 but he is not a student here

Hey Ali, I know Bilal quite well actually and unless he's been lying to me (which I shall definitely talk to him very seriously about), he's definitely at LUMS! :) Why do you think he's not thought? Do you know something I don't? If so then do tell! :)I love gossip!

Some arbit person wrote a thesis on the lingo used in IIT, Madras. I am sure it will add to your happiness.

Btw,

"Postmodernist (re)evaluation of Local-Global Identity Politics and the National Imaginary"

Are you serious or just being imaginatively funny ?What does it even mean ?

Xeb said...

Serious. And THAT is the kind of reaction that scares the crap out of me! :P

Deepak Iyer said...

Apologies.
But it was better than saying "hmm .. interesting" .. sound wiser than I am .. and then giving the scary reaction offline.

Happy grad schooling.

sorry sorry sorry.. really sorry, hes a student here, the student search service gave no result when i searched for 'Bilal Khan' later after reading your comment i asked a few people, strangely quite a few of them don't know of him, he hasnt publicised himself at all.


All of the confusion was because of his name i.e. 'Bilal Ahmed Khan', i am sorry once again :(
