In the essay "Why the Solidarity? South Asian Activism for Palestine," Srikanth offers some reasons for the compelling hold of the Palestinian cause on South Asian academics and activists. Referring to India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh in particular, she discusses the extent to which the colonial and neocolonial experiences of these three nations parallel life under Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people. The essay also traces Srikanth's own personal journey of coming into consciousness about Palestine and ties this personal awakening to her role as a teacher.
