...might perhaps just as well have been baptized "Romanisthan" (but then do we really need a separate homeland for the the Roma to flourish?), "Indo-Romani Studies" (but ours is not an exclusively, nor even primarily, academic meeting of minds), or "Indo-Romani Heritage" (but wouldn't the Indian legacy, even if willingly assumed, be construed and evaluated differently by each Roma?). These notices submitted by Joaquín Albaicín from their common Roma heritage in their personal initiatives that also engage the specific culture of their different host societies. Also offered a sample of (links to) their writings, presented and annotated by Joaquín, that you may comment upon and discuss at the Indo-Roma forum. Authors should feel free to modify their views in the light of the evolving discussions. Researching, questioning, disseminating and reviving this heritage has been a major axis of my own writings, travels and related endeavors, and is reflected not only in the orientation of the selections and notes on this homepage, but also in the fact of its affiliation to the parent svAbhinava site that is devoted to an acculturation model of Indian culture. However, this 'catholic' homepage is keen to accommodate opposing points of view, so long as their proponents are genuinely committed to dialogue and, hopefully, to active collaboration on behalf of our shared future.
