Workshop Description
Have you ever felt that you needed a more nuanced perspective of the Mahabharata? Have you wanted a gendered interpretation of the epic? Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's ‘The Palace of Illusions’ provides us with exactly these perspectives. Discover this book with Joy of Anubhava through writing, music, roleplays, debates, drawing, photos, and storytelling. Through a two-hour workshop, Joy of Anubhava invites participants to meet a community of book lovers, empathize with different characters, ask those tough questions to oneself and others, to critically think about those “what if” and “why” questions, and to engage in meaningful discussions with others to leave with a completely different perspective of the book.
