The best way to validate one’s existence is after all through the other. After all the anticipation, Litmus 2016 opened its curtains on the first day with a flurry of events.
From a panel discussion on “Post coloniality and the body in mythology to a student discussion on ” the child and the family in fantasy fiction and modern myth making”, Litmus led to a lot of brainstorming and reconstruction of the ideas surrounding the presentation of narrative myths and how we see them.
With a creative and mind boggling exhibition that paintings and photos challenging our visual discourse, the day ended with a lot of excitement and expectations for day 2.
Let’s recapitulate the day, shall we?
