Bangalore – UTC

Its gorgeous here. It feels slightly like being in a fairy tale. Gurukul was surrounded by the city and by noise, UTC (United Theological College) is more like buildings amidst the gardens…

But lest you think this is a sleepy place, don’t go so fast. I think it is going to be quite interesting to be here. The first professor I met face-to-face was Dr Evangeline Rajkumar, one of the most articulate feminist theologians I have met anywhere. I will be sitting in her lectures while I am here. How interesting to be in a country defined by patriarchy and raise yourself up to be a voice that questions every tradition and every understanding that keeps patriarchy as the standard. She was even featured in a national magazine here this month, One. Check her out.
