Shyama - Written by Rabindranath Tagore - Sat, 17th Feb'24

'Shyama' a dance drama composed by Rabindranath Tagore, is a timeless masterpiece weaving different aspects of love in its most vibrant colors. The story talks about a court-dancer who falls in love with a foreign merchant, Bajrasen who is arrested by the royal guard on grounds of jewellery theft. What happens after this are extreme actions and decisions taken by Shyama, where she manipulates one of her admirers, Uttiya to take the blame on behalf of Bajrasen. Uttiya gives up his life to uphold his unrequited love, personifying the character of true love.

Roots - Mon, 19th Feb'24

Roots, a work in Bharatanatyam, is conceptualized and choreographed by Chitra Chandrasekhar Dasarathy and performed by Ameya Repertory from Bangalore. A chance encounter with the exposed roots of a large tree on the slopes of Nilgiri Hills triggered a thought! The visual was stunning. One could only gaze at it in wonder – the intricacy of design, the inherent power, growing resolutely along a hilly slope supporting a mammoth tree! Over time, this visual became the seed for a story to evolve, an imagination to take root – of life below the surface. Often, what is not visible or obvious is not in the realm of our active thoughts. This work seeks to imagine a story of the Root where it is not just a place of return or of belonging but an entire assemblage pulsating with life, growth, ideas, thoughts, striving and much more. For the choreographer and the dancers, roots become a metaphor for who we are, how we engage with the world around us, and what ways we find to struggle, survive, and live with contentment. We draw, assimilate, internalize, and spread the Sap of Life, just as the root does. The root is us, looking at ourselves.

Understanding Societal Systems

Economic Horizons - Thu, 15th Feb'24

The global economic outlook in the future is going to be uncertain with wide disruption in all walks of life. The accelerating progress of AI comes at a pivotal moment in the global economy. AI and automation may offer a broad-based surge in productivity – resulting in all-round development and a more positive outlook. But to harness the true power of an AI-powered economy, a robust policy framework that fosters collaboration and enhances human potential and responsible management of data is required. Nobel Laureate, Michael Spence will be in conversation with Anurag Behar. A Q&A with the audience will follow.

The Geopolitics of Semiconductors - Thu, 15th Feb'24

Today, the hardware that runs all software — semiconductors or chips — has become a subject of WhatsApp groups and international politics. The chip shortage during COVID-19 made governments take notice of this complex supply chain. The US began denying advanced semiconductors to Chinese companies. Worsening China-Taiwan relations further intensified the debate. By 2022, China, the US, India, the EU, and Japan had released plans worth billions of dollars for setting up new semiconductor facilities. Join at BIC for a conversation discussing the geopolitics of this “meta-critical” technology anchored on the book ‘When the Chips Are Down: A Deep Dive into a Global Crisis‘ by Pranay Kotasthane and Abhiram Manchi. It will be moderated by Shrinivas Gorur and will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

Your Facts, My Facts - Fri, 16th Feb'24

Numbers as Political Allies (Cambridge University Press, 2023) analyses censuses of Jammu and Kashmir as public goods, collective self-portraits and symbols of modernity and enriches the debates on the political economy of statistics. The book tracks how censuses relate to their administrative, legal and political-economic contexts and captures their entire life cycle: from the political and administrative maneuvering at the preparatory stage to the partisan use of data in policymaking and public debates. The book draws on the history of the census in Jammu and Kashmir to show that data deficit is shaped by, and shapes, ethno-regional, communal, and scalar contests across different levels of governance. Further, comparing the experience of Jammu and Kashmir with that of other states, the book argues against resorting to legalistic and technocratic solutions to address the issue of data deficit and suggests possible measures to enhance public trust in the census. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

Silence of the Lands - Fri, 16th Feb'24

In this talk, Arati will lead us into lands and lives that are in equal parts beautiful and fragile, where the misguided human hand, coupled with willful blindness, undermines the innate resilience of the land in the face of climate change. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

The woman’s travel experiences and the chain of events that unfold in the forest directly target rudimentary patriarchal thinking. It takes the audience into a journey, also their own, of emotions, opinions and questioning, of every day and taken for granted conventionality of women’s lives, in individual, social, cultural and political milieus. RIP culminates on a high note, celebrating the women.
