Author's Corner Discourse In World Book Fair is happening on 11th January at Pragati Maidan.
Niyogi Books invites everyone for riveting discussions on one of the most talked-about topics of the present age. In this discourse we ask: ‘Is it time for a change in our gender policy?’ In today's world, when human beings are moving at jet-speed, our minds still haven’t broadened enough. Has the situation of members of the so-called ‘third gender’ improved, as they seek equality, respect and love—just as we all do? The dogmas that society has inflicted upon us are still tearing at our flesh. Perhaps we have forgotten that Shikhandi, the brave-heart of the Mahabharata belonged to the third gender. Can legislation match the expectations of public opinion? Moderator: Mohua Mitra Panelists: Malashri Lal, Alka Pande & Vinod Pande.
