As part of the Prajanya Trust’s ‘16 Days Campaign against Gender Violence’, poems by Dr Anannya Dasgupta – Associate Professor of Literature, Literature & the Arts and Director of Centre for Writing & Pedagogy at SIAS, Krea University – were featured on the occasion of Human Rights Day. The campaign aims to showcase women poets read poems from their work that draw on or speak broadly to the “four good words” in the preamble to the constitution: Justice, Equality, Liberty and Fraternity. From shedding light on late Rohit Vemula to highlighting the politics behind the Kathua Rape Case, watch the reading of Dr Dasgupta’s moving poems here.
