Not Quite Avatar

How the discourse of transforming traditions looks at human beings very cosmetically…..we change superficially but not systemically … the ‘global’ template is actually a ‘linear’ template that is being imposed on other ‘linear cultures’ and the Indian cyclical culture….how this is cultural imperialism is institutionalized and so faceless….we do not even realize we are the imperialist….to demonstrate this the talk will show how the internet Avatar and the James Cameroon Avatar have nothing to do with the Hindu concept of Avatar…Vishnu is not Batman!….and yet that is the global assumption where the Indian view, which is the source, is gagged and mocked and comes across as aberration.
