Magazine Description

In this issue

Goddess Durga descended the Earth on Mahalaya which is celebrated by Bengalis all over the world. The festival is associated with different practices like invoking the goddess 'Mahisasura Mardini' with mantras- 'Jago Tumi Jago' This is called 'Chokkhudaan'. Embroidery is one such craft that reflects the diversity of cultures in our country. This art had started dwindling in the past but fortunately, many NGOs have taken the initiative to keep it alive, pass it down to the younger generation and provide some livelihood to the craftsmen (many are women). D S Kapoor's scholarly inputs are always unique and full of information. His article on Ramgarhia's Virasat not only makes us proud but also puts Indian cultural contributions on an elevated international platform. In this 21st century we have seen Art marrying Science and during pandemic, it opened many portholes/windows. 'Art Courses for the New Age' is a step forward to guide the youngsters to bring scientific approach to their art and meet the demand of the day. The Digital Art and Illustration courses are answer to many who are trying to keep pace with the technology in changing times. Once again, we bring to you a rare and versatile personality who has made name in the field of theatre- Harish Bhatia. I have had the privilege of working with him on stage and can boast of picking up many nuances on acting from his vast experience. Acting and directing come to him with equal spontaneity'. In the Conversation' permitted me to ask all related questions and his honest replies are enough to invoke the interest in theatre in many youngsters. Having been a professor at the Engineering College, he continued his quest for theatre and made it fruitful.
