Welcome to my blog. I am a PhD Candidate at the Hong Kong Baptist University -department of Communication Studies. I am profoundly interested in the relationship between protests and electronic media. This blog originally started as a collection of my journalistic work and a diary of sorts. Since at present I traverse Hong Kong and Karachi to work on my thesis I would like to now highlight snippets, reflections and published material on my research. A diary of sorts however has been very useful to gauge progress of my research, development in writing style and to keep track of ideas generally. So, for clarity’s sake I encourage you to navigate using the menu above in that order.

The learning philosophy I’m extending is one where arguments are conversational and where focus is on finding useful meaning rather than ‘winning’ and rhetoric. Tea & cigarettes often serve as conversational stimulants hence the title.
