This weekend, NPR’s Studio360 ran an interview with Jenny and I and Vijay, the artist who painted our Bollywood poster. It was really interesting to hear his history and his side of the story. We were especially heartened when he leaped to our defense to dispel the reporter’s half-baked notion that it’s somehow “patronizing” or “maybe just plain wrong” of us to insert ourselves into a symbol of Indian culture. Give it a listen!
