The South Asian Studies Association

SASA was founded to promote scholarly study of and public interest in South Asian civilizations and affairs;
to provide a public forum for the communication of research and scholarship on South Asia; to promote schol-
arship and networking opportunities for scholars of South Asia through electronic and other media; to assist
public and private cultural and educational agencies and institutions in the development and dissemination of
programs and teaching materials on South Asia; to facilitate exchange of information among persons and ac-
credited academic institutions interested in South Asian studies, to disseminate research results, and to further
educate the general public about South Asian affairs; and to build bridges of understanding linking the aca-
demic, entrepreneurial and diaspora communities. Further information may be found at


Friends warned me that the second year in the life of a journal is far more difficult than the first year. By then, they
told me, the novelty has worn off and the enthusiasm of the volunteers has waned, but the hard work of getting out a
journal still remains. After having cranked out this issue, I can both agree and disagree with them. The editing work
for this issue has been, if anything, even more difficult than it was last year. However, our editorial board, our Editor,
and our President have all taken on their burdens with their usual aplomb, and so I am happy
to carry my share of the burden.

I’m happy that we can feature the the work of several Russian scholars here. Exemplar is
a great vehicle for exposing those of us in the West to scholarship that had previously been
unavailable to us. We will be continuing with this project in future issues, creating more open
lines of communication and dissemination of our work.
