The Post Office by Tagore

The Post Office – a play by Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), shared by Natasha Ginwala at the first workshop, Iniva, London 2013.

The Post Office arrived as a text that offers an allegorical construction of the rural subject, and one that might have an interesting relationship to the broader projects of Tagore, at Santiniketan as well as Sriniketan. (Vivian Ziherl, Landings, workshop 3, Tagore Centre, London)

part 1:

Anshuman Dasgupta talks about Indian artist Benodbehari’s 1946 mural ‘Life of Medieval Saints’.
The mural was done just before India’s Independence and in response to riots such as Noakhali’s; and is Benod Behari’s response to the division between Hindus and Muslims, by representing a nation of Saint poets. Medieval and contemporary figures come together, as the river Ganges joins different civilizations. The mural celebrates different ideas as well as it uses different techniques and styles, with modernist and traditional ways of depicting spaces and characters. Multi-focality and cohabitation being its central themes.
