    Well, welcome…

    Though I wonder if we can expect any biting criticism of the chinese legal culture (or complete lack thereof), if she is blogging from China.

    That is not a diss on her students, mind you, but the system they deal with. In fact, I am willing to bet they won’t even be allowed to read what i wrote.

    See, in some countries, we decide cases based on the law, not who is more powerful, and there is no one above the law. Sadly, that is not china, yet. Let’s hope that changes in the future.

    I’m looking forward to her posts simply out of fondness for her first name: in Sanskrit, it refers to the revelatory (i.e., Vedic) literature, “that which is heard” or “revealed” (thus: revelations), in other words, the Divine Word heard by the (maha)rsis (or ‘seers,’ although strictly speaking they are ‘hearers,’ yet the original revelations were subject to the constructions of poetic imagination [vikalpa], hence the truth of the appellation). Still, I anticipate revelations of a different sort from Professor Rana.
