Bangalore International Centre had arranged a Book Reading of “Five Movements in Praise” by Ms. Sharmistha Mohanty, on Saturday, 10th August, 2013 at 6:30 pm.
Ms. Mohanty read excerpts from her book “Five Movements in Praise”. The book unfolded through its eponymous five sections- “Town”, “Forest”, “City”, “Caves” and “Landscapes”—like the rhythmic flow of a poem. Moving between darkness and light, sadness and serenity, this composition kept shifting focus from major to minor keys as it shores up a hypnotic calm at its still centre. It was a work of fiction that brought together images and text.
The reading was gripping and a small but discerning audience enjoyed this interesting session.
