the typewriter lives on in India

The Typewriter in India. It's refreshing to see that a technology given up for dead has maintained a presence and purpose in India. Much like the commentary that poetry is dead - or dying - or in decline - or on life support; the news of the demise is greatly exaggerated. Poetry isn't going to be center of our culture in the US, in a country where marketplace determines value something like poetry isn't going to be "valued" all that highly. Yet, it doesn't mean its going to go the way of the Dodo bird either.
