About Journal

As it has been observed, Europe dominated much of serious critical attention in matters pertaining to the arts and sciences, providing, in a rather essentialist perspective the identifiers of a cultural consciousness labelled “mainstream”. To put it more simply, the “WEST” ( and by general implication the “WHITES”, the Francophone and Anglophone worlds combined) by virtue of their imperialistic designs and colonising practices pioneered debates and arguments necessitating the genesis and formation of cults and schools, nominating opinions, peremptorily dismissing the other world views that may oppose their existing manifestoes. The colonial phase, however, was responsible in a rather sub-conscious manner for leading the west to contemplate visions of the eastern worlds and the South-Asian countries, allowing for the cultivation of orientalist discourse. With the gradual onset of non-imperialistic socio-economic and political conditions, a paradigmatic shift necessitated non-Eurocentric forums to surface their opinions. Thus the emergence of an “Other” (who was not supposed to represent the flat, typified colonised “Other”) interrogated the various alternatives that circumscribed the post-colonised cultural hegemonic condition. And, as it goes without saying, the majority of South-Asian studies draw attention to studies focussing on India and the sub-continent. The authors are expected, however, to introduce and inculcate sensibilities that offer unique manners of situating South-Asian discourse in a rapidly transforming world, challenging within its given norms, the processes of growth, identities and dynamics the mere conceptual nuances of a geo-political terrain of constituent “South-Asia”. The concentration on South-Asia should invite criticisms specially remarking on its undeniable and pivotal, experimental enterprise. Broad topics may include politics, history, society, literature, culture, law, medicine, films, gender (LGBTQ and Masculinity Studies included), economy, sports, science and technology, climate, environment and earth sciences, education, commerce, business and development, fine arts, performative arts, religion, philosophy of South Asia and the Global South at large.
