Chutneyfying English – Hinglish

A current research interest due to work on Chetan Bhagat’s novels. Very interesting parallels with the debate over Singlish in Singapore, another ex-British colony of a very different scale.

The younger lady there is Rita Kothari, co-author of a collection titled, Chutneyfying English: the Phenomenon of Hinglish.


I'm a research fellow at an Australian university where I work on a number of projects. These include projects to do with new media and migration and the Chinese diaspora in Australia, projects on the Malaysian internet, ethno-religious issues in Singapore and Malaysia. And, before I forget many of the photos I use on this site were taken by my sister, Jessie and myself. All rights are reserved.
