“The culture of the modern medicine with a linear view of health care is best illustrated in the Chhattisgarh tragedy where doctors were competing to perform sterilization surgery in 5-10 minutes!” Health science practitioner Ritu Priya Mehrotra, said yesterday. In a presentation which covered a wide range of concerns under the gamut of health, from sanitation to food security, from indigenous medicinal knowledge systems to modern agriculture and corporate legitimization of simplistic health solutions, Ritu Priya emphasized the need for enriching interactions between local, traditional and modern forms of medicine. Eminent sociologist and activist Savyasaachi chaired the session.

4 Dec was a great day in the history of LILA PRISM. We had sculptor KS Radhakrishnan speaking on Bronze as Continuity at IHC, New Delhi. He dedicated an eponymous sculpture to LILA on this occasion, and it was unveiled during the talk, as he explained how the molten metal captures the urgency of creativity. This magnificent sculpture, Bronze as Continuity shows a Mahisha head, which is actually a crucible, from which his tongue, the molten metal, is pouring out.

Radha, always a friend, now more than that, a co-player of LILA, we are moved by this gesture. LILA has been a people's movement, made possible only through the wholehearted giving of individuals, institutions, communities. As we continue to function among the people, attempting in our humble ways to make knowledge transformative, light and illumining, Bronze as Continuity will remain a landmark for us, a reminder that the world that we inhabit has so much flow to nourish us..

This week on LILA Inter-actions, Irfan Habib regrets the deterioration of the conditions of historiography in India, after the praiseworthy principles laid in the Constitution. He observes the alarming attempts at stepping away from our secular project. Kumkum Roy remarks how the institutions of history research and teaching always tremble when turning points like 1984 and 1992 occur, but she remains hopeful as to the potentials of a history placing dialogue and concern as its core values: http://www.lilainteractions.in/records-and-scratches/
