To take a book metaphor, Hazra explains, I might not agree with a certain text, it is miles away from what I am feeling, I might have violent disagreements with the text, but yet if I am saying I am trying to engage with tit, I try to bring myself apart, vanish my own presence and try to engage with the text on its own terms. In the question of engagement, the question of self is in not-a-direct relationship. You might not engage with, or you might be really engaged with something that is psychologically very distant from you.
Granularity and sustained interaction
Engagement is an intensity of dialogue, sustained interaction, granularity, not flipping through, no keyword analysis, being interested in the comma, the semicolon and the dot and where the page number is etc.
