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.

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.
