THE PEN ALL-INDIA CENTRE
invites you to its PEN@Prithvi session for May 2015: Coming Home to Writing: A CONFLUENCE
In our May 2015 session, a set of emerging writers from different disciplines and domains – including Anjali Purohit, Barnali Ray Shukla, Devashish Makhija, Dion D’Souza, Dominic Alapat, and Jennifer Robertson – will come together to share their journeys.
They will discuss the experiences that continue to shape their writing, as poets, fiction writers, film-makers, script-writers, translators. They will talk about the blurring boundaries between the various mediums they explore as creators of art; the interstitial spaces they inhabit; and the trajectories they often take before arriving at a poem, a story, a screenplay. The writers will also reflect on the seminal works that have shaped and influenced their work, process and world-view. Jennifer Robertson will moderate the session.

You are cordially invited to –
‘Bahina’s World’ – a talk on the life and work of the 19th Century Marathi poetess Bahinabai Choudhari – presented by Anjali Purohit.
Bahinabai was an unlettered peasant poet from rural Maharashtra who composed some of the most moving and meaningful poetry.
This presentation will give a glimpse into her life, her thought and most importantly her poetry that she wrote in in the form of ovis (verse in couplet form that is traditionally sung by women in this state as they go about their daily chores).
This is a Free, Open-to-All event.
