LITMUS 2015: NARRATIVES OF CONTEMPORANEITY IN INDIA

1
‘Litmus’ the annual fest of the Department of English at Lady Shri Ram College for Women  saw an enthusiastic opening on 27th of February 2015. The theme is Narratives of  Contemporaneity in India. The two days fest will go on till 28th of February. The event  consists of six sessions in total with a photo exhibition going on simultaneously. Apart from  paper presentations by various B.A. and M.A. students of the department, there are a host of  interesting talks such as: ‘SELF AND THE NATION’, ‘NON LITERARY NARRATIVES’, ‘POPULAR  AND THE CANONICAL’ to name a few.   The first day began by an introductory talk by Professor Aditya Nigam which was immediately  followed by a session on the non-literay narratives which one can find in India today.   Another session had a talk by a senior reporter of the newspaper Khabar Lahariya which is an  Indian newspaper, published in certain rural dialects of Hindi, including Bundeli and Avadhi.  Initially seen as a women-only publication, it now covers local political news, local crime  reports, social issues and entertainment, all reported from a left-wing and feminist  perspective.  The second day begins with the issue which is perhaps the most debated upon in any English  Department – popular fiction versus the canonical texts. Another important discussion which  will take place on this day is that of Language and Translation debate. There will be a poetry  reading session following the talk, by Dr. Akhil Katyal. The fest ends on the second day by a  performance put up by the students of the department.
