The papers are by writers, thinkers and academicians from different parts of India as well as France and Europe who participated in the Seminar.EDITOR: Sibnarayan Ray is currently Research Director, Indian Renaissance Institute, and the author of over 20 works in English and Bengali on literature, philosophy and political theory.
