Marathi legacy: bringing cultural riches closer to Russians

Tuesday, 15 May 2012 05:05

The Jawaharlal Nehru Cultural Centre will host the presentation of the book "Death in Maharashtra: Imagination, Perception and Expression" created by the collective of authors headed by Doctor of historical sciences, Indologist Irina Glushkova. The event will take place at the D.P. Dhar hall in the Embassy of India in Moscow on May 16.

The title of the book, "Death in Maharashtra: Imagination, Perception and Expression", indicates that the authors of this 816-page volume have selected the latter factor, i.e. death, as their observation point. Thus, for the first time in Russian South Asian studies history the Russian public is given a chance to move along the traces and trajectories mapped by the Marathi-speaking community of India and to meet new names, destinies and events, wars and rituals, sorrowful dates and joyous festivals.

Moreover, it is a chance to partake of creative literature hitherto never so widely introduced in the Russian language. The richest cultural and historical legacy of the Marathi people is woven into days, decades and centuries, analytical papers and absurd plays, tragic essays and ironic poems, heroes and anti-heroes, to draw in an amazing puzzle-like amalgamation some contours emerging in a holistic picture of the unique world.
