A Performative Reading (75 mins)
An NCPA Off-Stage Presentation
Amiya Nath Bose was born in 1915 in a family of stalwarts. Vociferous protestors against British oppression, Amiya’s father Sarat Chandra Bose and uncle Subhas Chandra Bose often found themselves imprisoned or detained under some pretext or another. But, the separation did not stop them from being connected to young Amiya. They wrote to him often. From prison cells and faraway lands, in good times and bad. Many words were censored and lost but some stayed, long after the people who wrote were gone, leaving behind a legacy that we read today. The reading will be followed by a discussion with Madhuri Bose, the grandniece of Subhas Chandra Bose, and playwright Mahesh Dattani.
