• Of Foreigners and Terrorists

    Of Foreigners and Terrorists February 2011 - Amitava Kumar is a critically acclaimed author whose latest book, A Foreigner Carrying in the Crook of his Arm a Tiny Bomb, is a damning indictment of the global war on terror. In an interview with Khabar, Kumar explains why he thinks the war on terror is an elaborate and expensive distraction that harms rather than helps our cause against terrorism. Kumar's books include Bombay- London- New York, which is a chronicle of the immigrant experience. Circling the three capitals of the Indian diaspora, Bombay- London- New York captures the contours of the expatriate experience, touching on the themes of abandonment, nostalgia, and exile that have powered some of the most prominent Indian writers today. Passport Photos , one of Kumar’s earliest books, also trains its lens on the immigrant narrative and focuses as well on transnational identities and globalization.
