This is a well-developed course currciulum! I am impressed with the variety and diversity of authors and films. It will be an interesting addition to include one or two popular songs or music videos, especially since Bollywood has given the allure of a musical and enchanting South Asia. The course is divided into themes or topics, which will help focus the material around a central idea. The balance between the different cultures, genres and assignments is also very even. The pace seems fairly consistent.

I am surprised Arundhati Roy is not included, since her novel was highly praised. Then again, I am unsure if her novel was written in English, or whether translated texts are permissible. I also recommend the classic 1892 play Girls for Sale by Gurajada Apparao, which is available in English translation. For literary research and scholarship, Dr. Asha Choubey recently published Women on Women, which is a groundbreaking collection of scholarship about Indian women writers and their female protagonists.

Technical Remarks:

The photos were vivid. If possible, try to post a video link or two of authors and their lectures or interviews?
