What is Meant by ‘Changing Times’ After All?

  • Arup Maharatna
Chapter

Abstract

‘Times’ have been changing—of late rather fast. This is so much of a commonplace that anybody’s doubt about it could easily evoke an alarm of one’s possible infliction with insanity. However, even at a risk of being so stigmatised, I would propose that a thoughtful dissection of this pervasive perception is worth undertaking. In fact, the evocation of ‘changing times’ too often serves as a non-violent instrument for putting a quick full stop or sometimes even ‘cold water’ to many seemingly intractable and inconclusive debates/discussions pertaining to many important social/cultural issues.
