Introduction Clement Pananchikal’s longest-lasting and most appropriate identity would be that of student. Forever trying to make up his mind, forever weighing sides, he is a mundane Hamlet negotiating the chaos of a nevertheless ordinary life. Books are constant companions; he has so far ignored his guardian shade’s persistent refrain that the engine of the soul is to be fuelled by the flame of passion and not the chill of mere ideas. More than a quarter century of gaining ‘practical’ wisdom has worn the edge off his yearning for the spiritual, and each new day finds him less repelled by the idea of embracing materialism. However, arete remains his holy grail. Science, sociology and literature were subjects of formal study, art and philosophy are said to have led him astray. Today he earns his bread serving the Government of India, helping implement a social security scheme.
