India Peace Centre to organise literary event ‘Kabir – Tab aur Ab’ on June 11 in Nagpur

The event will be organised at India Peace Centre in Nagpur on June 11.

India Peace Centre and Nagpur Book Club will be organizing a literary event to celebrate the birth anniversary of Sant Kabirdas. The event will take place on June 11, 5.30 pm onwards, at India Peace Centre in Civil Lines.

Dr Tejinder Singh Rawal

During the event, renowned author Purushottam Agrawal will be in conversation with prominent chartered accountant and author Dr Tejinder Singh Rawal. Agrawal is the author of bestselling books like ‘Akath Kahani Kabir Ki’ in Hindi, ‘Kabir, Kabir’ in Hindi and English and ‘Kabir: Sakhi and Sabad’ in Hindi.  Dr Rawal is also the acting director and treasurer of India Peace Centre.

Purushottam Agrawal

Agrawal is known for his academic work pertaining to text-centred criticism and historiography of mediaeval and early modern Hindi poetry. After years of interaction with the followers of Kabir and other Nirguna Bhaktas, he has been working on developing the concept of Deshaj Adhunikta (Vernacular Modernity). Based on the trail of primary sources in Awadhi, Braj, Rajasthani and Sanskrit, Agrawal questions much of the received wisdom about the advent of modernity in South Asia. 

Kabir is one of the most well-known of modern saints of India and his poetry is direct and straightforward. Kabir’s poetic personality has been variously defined by the religious traditions that revere him. For Sikhs, Kabir is a prominent saint whose poetry forms a part of the Guru Granth Sahib. Muslims place him in Sufi lineages, and for Hindus he becomes a Vaishnavite with universalist leanings.

The event will be of great interest for book readers, scholars, students, and the lovers of poetry, and in general for everybody. Entry is free but registration is compulsory. In view of the limited seats and overwhelming response, the organisers have request those who wish to attend to register themselves at the earliest at www.nagpurbookclub.com. Rohit Tokhi is the Project Director of the event and all enquiries may be addressed to him at rohittokhi@gmail.com.
