  • Epic Lives and Forest People: Ekalavya in the Mahabharata and in Modern India

    The classical Sanskrit epic Mahabharata continues to lead a vivid and contentious life in modern Indian discourse. This talk will explore the troubling story of Ekalavya, an ambitious archer from the Nishada forest community. We will examine how his tale is told in the epic, and how modern observers retell his story from various perspectives, including upper-class, Dalit, and Nishada ones.
