Dear Rengaraj,

I am a Brazilian political scientist, finishing a PhD thesis on the international relations of Latin America. I found you blog thanks to Sergio Leo´s website.

I am liking very much to see someone in the other side of the world interested in the same things that I like.

Brazilian press is giving a good coverage of the president´s trip to India, but the newspapers don´t talk much of the cultural agenda, they are focused in the economics issues.

Best regards
MaurĂ­cio
