This paper is about a woman caught in the wake of a missionary enterprise. Gender considerations are set against a post-colonial framework of concern with the structures of thought that determine the articulations of "good" and "evil". In the madness of this person's grasp of herself as a supreme being, a goddess of learning through whose white heart and brain India has gained prosperity, I see a glimpse of what Jean Baudrillard has called "the intelligence of evil," or the secret of duality and reversibility that is spoken in the language of good and evil (Baudrillard, 2005:159).
