Reading World Literatures is a challenge. How does one perceive the contours of this globe with a singular gaze? How much of a region can be appropriated, what will be obliterated in the process? Who decides that? “What I assume, you shall assume” is Art? Who is this Artist that roams the world, singing songs that tell of saddest thought? We desist from the temptation to view the adventure as a mere economy world pack-age tour. Rather than transcend perceived boundaries of land and the mind painting pictures on a vast bland sky.
