Multiculturalism has travelled far away, alluringly from the original concept of limited application and reference to the creative work of the Afro-American writers in USA. India is in the forefront of offering multicultural literature not only on account of her hoary past, but by the indomitable spirit of her resilience, her ability to absorb and radiate salient features of all cultures, and faiths so firmly fused and splendidly harmonised. Very rarely found anywhere in the world!
All literature emerging from multilingual and multicultural contexts echo a major song of discrimination and its ramifications resulting in resistance, revolt and regeneration of a new social order where all cultures are received with uniform regard and evaluated with a common benchmark.
This volume carries eighteen research papers showcasing salient features of drama in different countries, in addition to incorporating information on theatre in India with diverse linguistic backdrop. An interview with a well established writer, who is known for his integrity and uncompromising administrative acumen offers illuminating insights.
