Alliance française du Bengale and ICCR are presenting a lecture on the occasion of the 150th birthday of Romaind Rolland, given by eminent author and French laureat, Prof. Chinmoy GUHA.
The dialogue between Romain Rolland and India, represented by its best minds, was not a meeting between the mythical East and the mythical West, but a fascinating cross-cultural encounter, an intimate fireside conversation, a true interface not only between two streams of thought, but two historical and cultural discourses.
Professor Chinmoy Guha, who has written extensively on Rolland, and is preparing an annotated version of the encounter, will take a new look on the subject on the occasion of the 150th birth anniversary of the French Nobel laureate.
