Issue 38. 2003
Theatre and Education
Editorial: Anjum Katyal
Guest Editor: Vikram Iyengar
More often than not, the universal panacea suggested/
offered for any of the ailments which stem from a deep
(though sometimes dormant) distrust (at best) to blinding
animosity (at worst) takes some form of 'awareness
campaigns', a nebulous idea which could, in practice,
range from a political leader making placatory speeches
at places of worship, to a march of some sort, to the
some what quieter alternatives of niche publishing,
dissemination of material or working in and with 
communities. All these have their validity, but is it not
time that we examined what it is in us (or rather, what
it is that we lack in ourselves) that allows these 
situations to develop? Could we, perhaps, trace it back
to the absence of any true system of holistic education
that is essentially humanizing, that makes both teaching
and learning 'a physical, emotional and sensuous 
experience'? Could we also suggest that this has its
source in a certain unwillingness in the powers that be
(whether educationists, education boards, school 
authorities, teachers, parents or indeed, students
themselves) to tackle delicate and problematic issues in
a proactive and creative way, or even to keep these
issues in mind in the course of teaching related or even
overtly unrelated topics?
