And what's wrong with orientalism? I myself find it extremely irritating when nobody can say the word without feeling him/herself really imperialistic... Thanks a lot, mr. Said!! I would be delighted if the name of my department (Instute for Asian and African studies, Univ. of Helsinki) would be Institute for Oriental studies. Or actually, it should be a faculty of itself, like in Cambridge...

Pisti muuten _aivan_ sama juttu silmään Innoa katsoessani. Mutta ehkä ihmisellä, jonka kirjat mahtuvat kahdelle hyllylle, joista riittää tilaa vielä koriste-esinelle, ei ole meidän kaltaista intoa hypistellä kirjoja päivittäin. Tai ehkä asunnon omistaja on niin hoocee kirjojensa suhteen, että osaa ne ulkoa ja saa zeni jo pelkästä tietoisuudesta, että kirjat ovat tuolla jossain ie. niin korkealla, että niihin ei pääse käsiksi ilman huoltomiehen tikkaita.

Tulispa joku sisustamaan meidän läävän... oops, siis kodin.

You can, of course, talk about Bollywood movies in addition to the above subjects ;-).
