Anjalika Sagar – Home and the World

Anjalika Sagar talks about Tagore’s ‘Home and the World’ in contrast with notions of global, nation and international. Bringing Leela Gandhi’s Ahimsaic Historiography (non-violence historiography) as a tool to construct an ethical practice in the arts.

Ahimsaic historiography, quoting Leela Gandhi, turns to the colonial encounter not for evidence of violence or conflict or exotic mistakes, but rather in search for small-subjugated narratives of cross- cultural collaboration between oppressors and oppressed. Concerned with a visionary commitment to the end of institutionalized suffering.
