Dear Sasi, I am currently in the US, but will be in Kerala over semester break....arriving I hope around Dec 27 and remaining until Jan 17. Not a lot of time, I know. I will likely remain in and around Trivandrum, but will call soon after my arrival. Your work on gift exchange sounds interesting and I think likely articulates with the political competitions in Malabar that has interested me. I hope we can remain in touch. Sincerely, David Kideckel
