Choosing bronze as her favourite medium, Meera Mukherjee (1923-1998) formed her own simplistic, modernist, life-like world of sculptures. They possess a `lifeforce' that speaks to the ordinary being instead of alienating them. Mukherjee's commitment to her practice made her valiant enough to step out of her comfort zone and dedicate herself to visual arts. Her devotion to the craft traditions of India guided her to Madhya Pradesh, Bengal and South India. The artist's language is similar to that of the quotidian life in her immediate surroundings, shedding light upon social issues.
An AltaMira Press Book Indigenous Vision examines the respect indigenous cultures hold for the planet and various facets of their environmental practices. "This book is essential reading for ecologists, anthropologists, environmental activists and all concerned with the survival of planet Earth."--Pakistan Devel. Review
This volume has emerged out of an enthused response to contribute essays on the making of Indian nationalism - an aspect that assumes importance in the wake of a spectacular return of national consciousness through the decades of the 80s and 90s. The essays in this volume are incisive analytical comments on what constitutes Indian culture.
A new iconography of the Indian woman seems to be emerging which challenges the traditional "images" and roles of women. Dramatic changes in projecting the woman reflect changes in societal norms and taboos - in a country which has both defiled the woman and idolised her. These roles for the modern woman are subversive, mapping out bold new frontiers for her to explore. The effects are persuasive in being projected through the media, the fourth estate in society, and through the popular genre of Hindi cinema. Set against the feminist discourse, these images raise different questions about "seeing" the Indian woman. Traced over the century, they suggest an extraordinary transformation in imaging the Indian woman, as manifested in painting, photography, popular posters and classical cinema and as examined here in works by both men and women. In five seminal essays, this book examines central issues regarding the woman: whether she is regarded as a woman or a goddess; whether her body is treated as an object or subject of pleasure; if she has the freedom to move from home to the world outside; if she is expected to play multiple roles or is perceived in her integral self; and if she has learnt now to re-assert her own power.
