Indica is pleased to announce the release of another Anthology – “Aryaa – An Anthology of Vedic Women” on 18th January at Indica Ritambara. It is curated by Shivakumar GV – Scholar in Residence at Indica and Consulting Editor for Indica Today. It contains 10 Stories covering 10 Characters written by 10 Authors. It is a retelling of the stories of women from the Vedas, Upanishads and Itihasa-Puranas. It is a creative reimagination within the boundaries of our tradition. It is a labour of love and conviction that our civilization is an inspiration for all times to come. It is a celebration of the glorious role played by fascinating women in shaping our civilization over millennia.
We hope these narrations inspire a relook at old narratives and create fresh cultural conversations.
The Book will be released at Indica Ritambara by Shri. Prakash Belawadi – renowned cultural personality in Theatre, Film, Literature and Media. The Book Release is part of a day-long event at Indica Ritambara where the Authors reflect upon their writing experience and contemplate their future literary endeavours.
