India Today — New Show ‘n Tell

India…Now…Today
<<<Click on Link>>>

Dear Friends:

The above link is a collection of my new photos I brought back from India. I hope you have time to browse over the pictures and read the captions and descriptions I added to each photo. This is my newest India show ‘n tell. It’s incomplete and perhaps a little personal in nature. But my blog, as you know, has always been personal in nature.

A Lazy December Afternoon

I’m now back in New York, U.S. after a two-month-long trip. It was a rewarding experience.

Some of you — especially those of you who are regular readers of my blog — might know that during the trip from early December to early February, I have published a double-CD album of twenty Tagore songs entitled “Aro Ektu Bosho” (Stay a Little Longer) — Srishti Cassette, Calcutta, January 2012. If you are interested to get a copy here in the U.S., please contact me. I have posted a few promotional songs off the CD at this free link at http://soundcloud.com/partha-banerjee-nyc . Happily, so far, the link got over 1100 hits.

I’m now planning to perform with my recorded songs for promotional and/or recreational purposes. In India, I had three such performances where I sang and also talked about the subjects of global cultural erosion and kitsch. You can visit this link for one such talk I presented at New Delhi’s Jamia Milia Islamia University. Click on Tagore, Culture and Kitsch. My musical performances almost always have accompanying talks.

In India, I have also given talks on subjects such as global economy, democracy, human rights, media, immigration and yes, science too (I was a biologist in my past life, in case you didn’t know). Honestly, it was quite exhausting to travel across India to present the talks; at one point, I fell sick. Still, at the end of the day, I felt happy that I was able to interact with so many Indians — young and old alike — who were willing to hear about the topics, in conversational forums.

Two publishers — one in New Delhi and the other in Calcutta — also expressed interest to publish my original articles and translations. Now it’s time for me to find the time to meet their expectations.

Who Writes...Who Buys...and Why?

I have also resumed working at my regular workplace as an educational program developer and teacher. Starting mid-April, I begin teaching our eight-month-long interactive labor workshops out in Long Island, which is a major part of my job.

Thanks for your time to read my little update. I hope to stay in touch with you and work together in the coming days. I promise to write much more about my experience on this blog when I catch a little breath and settle down. I hope you come back to read my blog, frequently.

Meanwhile, please visit my New India Show ‘n Tell. Let me know what you think.

 

Sincerely Writing,

Partha

Brooklyn, New York
