But only for a little while.
Today I had quite the evening. I went to a talk about Science Fiction in the Indian culture (Why Aliens don’t visit India), with a friend I met at a Cosplay/Sketchoff thing. It was quite interesting, I had no idea how fractured the Indian cultural identity is. The talk was held in the library building in the Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU for us Mancunians), I am thinking of applying to some of the MA programmes they have here.
We weren’t many people at the presentation so the whole thing had a conversational feeling to it, afterwards we went to a falafel place called… Falafel. Last time I had falafel I was at the Eksarhia square and that is what I have the falafel taste associated with.
Anyway, we had discussions about science fiction, comics, movies, and cultures, it was a good night out.
