Duties and Rights in the Dharmasūtra-s (Hindi)
The INDICA Center for Indic Studies in Law & Justice (CISLJ) presents a conversation with Dr Pratibha Shastri on the 28th of October 2022 at IST 1800 hrs. This conversation intends to put the spotlight on some aspects of her book धर्मसूत्रों में नागरिकों के कर्तव्य और अधिकार (roughly, Duties and Rights in Dharmasūtra-s) published in 2016 by Vidyanidhi Prakashan (New Delhi). Amongst other things, Dr Shastri, in her book, engages with the scope of the term nāgarika. Was nāgarika (loosely, citizen) a status limited only to human beings or is there evidence that attest to a broader and a more inclusive scope of that term? What can one learn about what was considered duties and rights in the Dharmasūtra-s? Join us to understand her textual-evidence based perspective in response to these questions and more. This conversation will be primarily in Hindi.
