Etymologically, the word Bodh’ has multiple meanings. Despite its leaning towards ‘Intellection’, poet Jibanananda Das, characteristically, speaks of it more in the sense of inquiry. Sometimes he questions melancholia, sometimes death, or nothingness or earthly vastness, or sometimes, surreal fantasies that float past. Self-contradiction, an apparent void and a minimal touch of the magical is ‘Bodh’.
A re-reading of ‘Bodh’ with artists from varied disciplines comes together to form Chobi Mela[0] Fellowship Programme.
