Puccini was his favourite composer and Catriona Summers' voice had captured
the very essence of the tragedy of Madame Butterfly. Relaxing back in the icy
airconditioning he stared out of the window at the passing cavalcade of tourists,
shoppers and business people who poured over the crossing. He liked living in
the city – he enjoyed the buzz it gave him, yet he was all too familiar with the evil
that lay so close beneath that veneer of modernity and success – but sometimes,

participate in the dreamscape of modernity. Now, if any agreement were to occur
in contemporary feminist thought, it would be the notion that "woman" is not a pre-

and implicated in various discursive formations and institutional practices (Adams

A Space for Action I will suggest that we in a functional scheme can understand
the dreamscapes and illusionary character of Indian films as a focalisation in
Sperbers terms.2 When "Maine Pyar Kiya" opens in its imaginative universe it is
exactly telling us that this film should be considered as the dream my Indian

LaBerge does not adhere to a ...

His innovative approach was highly influenced by the philosopher Friedrich
