Diasporic Cross-Currents in Michael Ondaatje’s Anil’s Ghost and Anita Rau Badami’s The Hero’s Walk
HEIKE HÄRTING

N HIS REVIEW of Anil’s Ghost, Todd Hoffmann describes Michael Ondaatje’s novel as a “mystery of identity” (449). Similarly, Aritha van Herk identifies “fear, unpredictability, secrecy, [and] loss” (44) as the central features of the novel and its female protagonist. Anil’s Ghost, van Herk argues, presents its readers with a “motiveless world” of terror in which “no identity is reliable, no theory waterproof” (45). Ondaatje’s novel tells the story of Anil Tessera, a Sri Lankan expatriate and forensic anthropologist working for a UN-affiliated human rights organization. Haunted by a strong sense of personal and cultural dislocation, Anil takes up an assignment in Sri Lanka, where she teams up with a local archeologist, Sarath Diyasena, to uncover evidence of the Sri Lankan government’s violations of human rights during the country’s period of acute civil war. Yet, by the end of the novel, Anil has lost the evidence that could have indicted the government and is forced to leave the country, carrying with her a feeling of guilt for her unwitting complicity in Sarath’s death. On one hand, Anil certainly embodies an ethical (albeit rather schematic) critique of the failure of global justice. On the other, her character stages diaspora, in Vijay Mishra terms, as the “normative” and “ exemplary … condition of late modernity” (“Diasporic” 441) — a condition usually associated with the figure of the nomad rather than the diasporic subject — and thus raises questions about the novel’s regulatory politics of diasporic identity. In contrast, Anita Rau Badani’s The Hero’s Walk represents the formation of diasporic identities as an empowering process shaped by multiple changes on the local level rather than by transnational mobility. Set in a fictive seaside town in…...

...industrial traits she posses which are highly heritable to the next generation. By breeding this heifer to a sire which excels in CEM, rib eye area, and heifer pregnancy will provide a next generation calf will have a greater chance genetically for the deficient traits of this heifer. Some disadvantages of this heifer’s genetics are the low rib eye area When I was selecting a sire for this heifer I took into account SAV Final Answer‘s EPD information and family lineage to ensure that there is no chance of accidental inbreeding with the intended heifer and potential sire. SAV Final Answer excels in many economically important traits along with reproductive efficiency. He has excellent production traits such as +12 CED, -1.0 BW, +61 WW, and +14 Docility; along with production traits he also excels in maternal, carcass, and $value traits for example the maternal calving ease is +13 above industry average and a heifer pregnancy rate. Due to the inheritance factor there is chance that future offspring will inherit some of the traits. I have chosen Select Sires GAR Ingenuity 7AN341 as the sire due to the high rib eye area 10, high CW 10, and high marbling score 9. Along with the production traits Ingenuity has he also provides great maternal traits which I would use in attempt to balance out the lesser reproductive traits of the Angus heifer. The choice of this sire was made with the future in mind. By choosing G A R Ingenuity 7AN341 the goal is to have a very high......

Naturalism

...real. Everything that happens in nature is caused by something else in the closed system of nature. The only thing that is real for a naturalist is our material world. They do not believe there is a spiritual world. The only meaning our lives have is the meaning humans give to their live. (Copp D,2003:179-181). (Sire, James. 2004:54-55) 2. What does a naturalist believe the world is made up of? Nature was not created. It has always been and needs nothing in order to exist for ever. All things in nature are formed from something like particles or units. These small particles are the same, but have different characteristics and functions. They are all natural, governed by change and effect and will continue in that way. The system is closed and it functions through cause and effect. Effects happen because some other change happened or was caused by an action and is a reaction thereof. People with this worldview belief that the world is made up out of space, time, molecules, and the basic elements. They also believe that evolution had a very big part in our world. People with this worldview only belief that the world is our resource nothing more and nothing less. (Sire, James. 2004:55-56) 3. What does a naturalist believe a human to be? A Naturalist views a human as a complicated machine, made up of small particles that are the same as the particles making up the natural elements, but that have different characteristics and functions.

The Importance of Being Earnest as Delineated by the Escher-Bouhm Paradigm

...himself a place of power at their games of intrigue and politics Who Embraced you and why? Did the Embrace change you and if so, how? MacCloy was embraced by a Nosferatu Gethsemani member of the Lancea Sanctum. His Sire siezed on the opportuinity to bring a true Stigmatic into the unlife, gaining all the prestige that offered him. He spent almost a decade researching whether or not MacCloy's wounds were true Stigmatism before the human left to study Dentistry in New York. Infuriated by allowing his future-Childe to slip through his fingers, MacCloy's Sire waited and brooded for his return. The dentist was only back in the city for a year before his Sire embraced him. After the Embrace MacCloy has become colder than he was whilst alive, but he has trouble telling how much of that is due to becoming a Kindred, and how much is due to his relationship with his Sire. When MacCloy was Embraced his Sire kept him confined and let him out only under supervision for a period of a month, instructing his Childe in the matters of Vampiric unlife and Kindred Society during this time. MacCloy lost his job during this period, and it significantly soured his mortal relationships as he had seemingly vanished. What is your relationship to your Sire? MacCloy's relationship with his Sire is toxic in both directions. The older Vampire desired MacCloy as a protege and as a tool to increase his own standing in the Lancea Sanctum. He confined the dentist for a month, only letting him out under......

...where Rustam figures out he might have a connection to Suhrab. The reader can also predict that the truth will come out and Suhrab will provide proof that he is Rustam’s seed. This also emphasizes how tragic the kill of one’s child can be. As you can see foreshadowing is important in a story especially when emphasizing the tragedy. Portraying the mood to a reader is very important. When the reader picks up the mood, especially through foreshadowing it can make a reader more interested and likely to continue reading. Firdawsi did an exceptional job at using foreshadowing to portray the mood in the Shah-nama. Suhrab states, “Undo my breastplate, view my body bare, see how sires treat sons”(6). Reading this one can assume that Rustam will find the gem that Suhrab’s mother gave him. The phrase”see how sires treat sons” is used to sadden the mood because Suhrab has been killed. In conclusion, portraying the mood in the use of foreshadowing is very important. In the Shah-nama Firdawsi skillfully employed foreshadowing to create suspense, emphasize the mood, and portray the mood. These are very important to the reader. Foreshadowing can truly help the reader understand the story and keep them interested in the story. This why and how Firdawsi used foreshadowing in the Shah-nama....

The General Prologue of the Canterbury Tales

...smells could be perceived by human senses. “When April with his showers sweet The drought of March has pierced unto the root And bathed each vein with such power To generate fresh strength and sire the flower; When Zephyr also has, with his sweet breath, Quickened again, in every wood and heath, The tender shoots and buds, and the young sun Into the Ram one half his course has run, And many little birds make melody That sleep through all the night with open eye (So Nature urges them on to ramp and rage)” The first 11 lines have all the essential elements of the conventional first stanza of a love lyric, indicating the vitality of springtime: April’s sweet showers, budding flowers, burgeoning leaves, the warm Zephyr, the melodious chirps of birds stimulated by the beauty of Nature. The whole imagery triggers narrator’s poetic sensibilities as well as the readers. It is about a sense of relief after the harshness of a long winter and a keen anticipation of all the lovable things that would follow. Besides, Chaucer employs vivid verbs, together with rhythmic phrases like “holt and heath”, “shoots and buds”, “ramp and rage”, which convey a strong sense of masculine energy to further intensify the renewed reproductive power of spring. The verbs like “engender” (sire), “pierce”, “inspire” (quicken), “prick” translated from the original text describing natural movement of spring, all have an amorous connotation behind them to add to its sexual vigor.......

...Many factors which affect productivitysuch as fertilityseldom can be evaluated by judging an animal on appearance or type. It has been demonstrated that it takes 20 to 30 times as long to attain a unit of improvement in livestock by selection on appearance alone as compared to selection on appearance coupled with selection on the basis of production or progeny testing. Because progeny and production performance cannot be measured without the help of adequate and accurate records, it is essential that record forms be devised which will answer the needs of the sheepman. Adequate demonstration as to what can be done in improving livestock efficiency has been provided by dairy and poultry producers through the use of their R. 0. P. and sire-index programs. The sheep producer may also use records in building more efficient and more profitable flocks. Records presented here are easy to use and require a minimum of time to keep but still provide for the recording of adequate basic information which will serve as a guide to the intelligent selection of hecze.

Tb Mating Plan

...progeny of which I intend to sell at Tattersall sales FINISH THIS SECTION Task 1 (750) The carefully selected mares for the mating programme are ‘Falcon in Flight’ (Falcon) and ‘Palomita’, both mares sold at the December Tattersalls mare sales. Falcon was lot 43 and sold for £3,000, she was consigned by Darley and property of Rabbah Bloodstock Limited and before sales she was covered by Arabian Gleam and believed in foal. She has won 1 race of her total 4, it is however her breeding lines that are desirable and the reasoning for her selection. Progeny of Shamardal and Marine City means she is genetically more desirable than other mares, with Carnegie as her Dam Sire who won 7 of his 13 races and placed in 2 others. Shamardal is a very successful stallion currently 8th in the table of leading flat race sires (in accordance to wins) on the Racing Post website, he also possesses a 2.23 average earnings index (AEI) score. Falcon is inbred 4x5 by Northern Dancer, 4x5 by Riverman and 5x5 by Petingo, inbreeding increases the chance of a desired trait being expressed therefore the racing performance success of these stallions will be inherited by Falcon. If she does not race as hoped she still possessed the desired genetics to be crossed with another equally genetically strong stallion. On the purchase of Falcon it must be noted that she is already in foal by Arabian Gleam, winner of 4 Group 2 races beating 12 Group winners and said to be a ‘solid performer’ by his......

...Biblical Worldview Essay Instructions Rationale for the Biblical Worldview Essay Every person has a worldview whether he realizes it or not. What is a worldview? James W. Sire defines a worldview as: [A] commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true or entirely false) that we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic constitution of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being. Stated more succinctly, "…[A] worldview is simply the total set of beliefs that a person has about the biggest questions in life." F. Leroy Forlines describes such questions as the "inescapable questions of life." Life's inescapable questions include the following: "Is there a God? If so, what is He like? How can I know Him? Who am I? Where am I? How can I tell right from wrong? Is there life after death? What should I and what can I do about guilt? How can I deal with my inner pain?" Life's biggest, inescapable questions relate to whether there is a God, human origins, identity, purpose, and the hereafter, just to mention a few. Satisfying answers to the "inescapable questions of life" are provided by the Holy Scriptures. The Holy Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, form the starting point and foundation for the biblical worldview. More specifically related to our......

Personal Worldview Inventory

...Rachel Garcia Personal Worldview Inventory Grand Canyon University Spirituality in Healthcare HLT-310V Personal Worldview Inventory There are many different meanings to the word spirituality; spirituality is defined in several ways, as it pertains to different worldviews. Worldviews have been known to be a matter of the heart, cultural beliefs and traditions. A worldview is a commitment, fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions that we hold consciously or subconsciously, about the persons reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and have our being,” (Sire, 2015). Pluralism Pluralism is a worldview where the members of minority groups structure their culture on acceptance and diversity. These common traits all strive for the common good of all and also realize there is some truth in other beliefs, (Pluralism, 2015). These types of theorists stress how important it is to be tolerant of other religions. However, these theorists do not tend to deviate from the beliefs of their people; they strive to maintain their independent cultural traditions. Cultural traditions that effect the person in their every day life. Scientism Scientism is a worldview that is based on the scientific method. “All that ‘is’ and all that ‘can be known’ is verifiable of falsifiable through the scientific method and that which cannot be measured is simply an opinion, belief or fantasy,” (Scientism,......

Perfect

...they were subjected to Satan who persuaded them to lose their and our perfect status. Sire (2015) tells of Sixia Lu who spoke of the workability of communism. Lu tells us communism could only work if there were perfect human beings. Well. As Lu and many have the ability or capability of being perfect. Ecclesiastes 7:20 tells us “Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins” (NIV, 2011). So what they were taught was a false dream. When Jesus spoke in His sermon on the mount He said “You are the salt of the earth” but that salt could lose its flavor. Jesus wants us to do good works in the world (flavor). When Jesus said “You are the light of the world” He wanted Christians to shine their light so men may see the good works they do for God and glorify God our Father (Matthew 5:14-16, NIV, 2011). Perfection has nothing to do with good works (flavor) or shining our light. To be a Christian means our first culture is not of this world but of Christ. The human race should have a life based upon Christian culture. Humans should be seen by the light they shine and flavor they show in the race of Christianity which is our culture. Shine your light and show your flavor and glorify God. References Grand Canyon University HTH 655 Lecture 3 Notes. (2015, March 9). Retrieved 2016, from Grand Canyon.com. Rahner, K. (1965). Culture.
