| Reprint of Vangadarshana|
Just heard that Bappa's travelogue of Bengal titled "Vanga Darshan" will be reprinted by Karnataka Literary Akademy. The book gives a graphic encounter of life in West Bengal in late 1960s. It had been out-of-print for a long time, and exposes the Naxalite and Communist movements of Bengal during the years the author lived in West Bengal.
Sociliast Movements in India
Talking about Communists and Socialists, I am very happy to compile an interesting exhibit of Socialist Propaganda in India through wonderful period posters.
Original inspiration came from 1996 exhibit at Internet Public Library on Anarchist Images
Baba Would've Been 100
This week, my maternal grandfather (who passed away in 2002, when he was 97) would have turned 100, and Amma has an article: Remembering Baba on his Birth Centennial
TiNamShri and DLN Centennials
This year is also the 100th birth year of great Kannada scholars T.N. Srikantiah, (writer of "Bharatiya Kavya Meemamse"), and D.L. Narasimhachar.
Enjoy these rare portraits...I get mail all the time from family members of all these great men and women that they've never seen these pictures.
All thanks to the Camera Monkey...
