don't talk just kiss/ let your tongue fool around

there are no definite plans for this post. like there ever are, but it is good to pretend that medusa is this organised superbrain who has detailed plans for whole week's post to come and etc.
anyway, city and hostel are both terribly hot. the heat is tangible, if you move your hands around you, there is a warm humid feeling in the air, as if you are made to touch warm blooded reptile. there are pockets of respite on the road, but to reach them you ahve to mount an excursion that is equivalent to a lazy person's journey to the sahara. medusa's favourite past time these days is to feel the different temperature zones in her room and to manuevar herself so that the exposed parts of the body are in contact with the less warm zones.
anyway, too much of something is not always bad.
so medusa decided to turn the heat on by unleashing angelina on the blog world.
apart from such maundane ramblings, medusa is happy to note that she has finally sat down to study and has started writing as well. what rocks medusa's boats right now is the idea of "masquerade" as proposed by Joan Riviere (that smart psychoanalyst who freud and etc will not sleep with because she was so intellectual....) and then later on developed by many other film theorists. Riviere says that supposedly masculine women , in her world that would be intellectual and successful in a porefessional capacity, tend to overdo the tropes of femininity in order to dispel the threats of patriarchy. for her, this is a strategy for survival.
but later on, masquarade has been looked at as something that by being overdone exposes the made nature of discursive formations such as femininity and therefore is a threat to patriarchy.
yay.

  2. ...er...well that doesnt matter here! question is, why do you guys make distinction amog genders? there r problems in a patriarchal society, but problem can even rise within the boundaries of matriarchal society too.
    Why do u highlight upon the dissimilarities so much? do you think composing a matriarchal society would solve all its problems? is that possible? why cant u think of a society which wud neither be patriarchal nor be matriarchal in nature? where there will be harmony everywhere....no disimilarities...men and wemen binding themselves with a true bond of pure love..."Rojokini prem/ nikoshito hem/ kaamgandho nahi tay"...nobody wud be dominated or enslaved....nobody wud be there to dictate over anybody...there wud be freedom everywhere....no bindings...no 'ruler-to-ruled' relationship...there wud be a free will amongst everyone with which they can overcome any or all mortal pain and suffering...!

    ....dont know why you create the barriers!

  4. Don't think it ever gets that humid here. Despite the start of the cricket season, it's still bloomin' cold (I was wearing two jumpers by the end of last Saturday's match).

    Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
