  • Challenges of Reading: ‘Disentangling’ Badal Sircar’s Plays
  • Dr Manujendra Kundu (ICSSR (Indian Council of Social Science Research) Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of History, University of Delhi)
  • The seminar discusses whether there is scope for an ‘other’ reading of Sircar’s plays (though critics might argue that a play is to be played and not read), what happens when ideology/theory and practice (vis-à- vis Sircar’s Third Theatre) go their separate ways, and very briefly the reasons for a dismal state of the alternative theatre in Bengal.

  • 19th Jaina Studies Workshop, Jainism and Buddhism
  • The Jains and the Buddhists have distinctive attitudes to religion and knowledge. Their approaches define religion as encompassing all forms of knowledge, including the physical sciences, the humanities and the spiritual journey. Yet, both ancient Indian traditions co-evolved, and mutually influenced each other.
