The loneliness of Noam Chomsky

One of the greatest joys in life is reading something good. Something that makes one ponder, ruminate and occasionally, regurgitate.

Teaching RC, in addition to other ones, has the major benefit of being able to explain the finer meanings of the written word. I recently took the same class for some 5 batches in a single week. One of the passages, is fairly tough and really takes some time for most students for its meaning to be clarified. However, once it is clear, the astonishment is there to see.

I searched for it on the net, and it turns out to be a part of an introduction written by Arundhati Roy for Noam Chomsky's book.

Have a look.
