Postcolonial Now: Chekov and Zulu
Chekov on the other hand is obviously Russian. He is played by a Russian actor whose father was a known communist. So why did Rushdie choose these two chekhov and zulu instead of say, Spock and Kirk?
These are obviously more glamorous characters than Sulu and Chekov, they are also significantly more well known. But there is one important difference: Chekov and Sulu are both humans from the chekhov and zulu content of Asia, featured in a story that takes place in India.
When you take a closer look at the characters it all makes sense. The assassination led to rampages, riots and chaos in New Delhi, the capital city of India.
Over the next few days, mobs ran through the streets of New Delhi and other parts of India, killing several thousand Sikhs. In chekhov and zulu, these revolutionists were often the starting point for bloody struggles and terrorist organizations.
But not, apparently, in certain circumstances, yours. Clearly Zulu has a much different opinion than Chekov.
Rushdie uses humorous and serious tones to contrast the chekhov and zulu of western culture like Star Trek with the ominous implication of Western governments in Eastern problems. This, in turn creates an extremely fun story to read and ponder, as well as it instills a respect for my inner geek.
