Book Release of ‘Change and Continuity’
On 23rd February the book Change and Continuity, a result of MRP research work offered by UGC and conducted by Dr. Aditi Dasgupta, was released along with the Poetry Forum, ‘An Anthology’ Volume V, the fruit of meetings and discussions of students of the Department of English, by Sister Noelle Corscadden, General Superior of the Institute of The Blessed Virgin Mary, also called Loreto, Sister Anita Braganza, South Asian Province Leader, Sister Christine Coutinho, Sister Marilla D’Souza and Dr. Aditi Dasgupta, author of the book.
A brief prayer service, was followed by Dr. Dasgupta talking about the why and how of the book, and how each Loreto Sister referred to in her piece of literary work came alive to her. Debangana Pal, one of the student editors of the Poetry Forum shared the impressive journey of the forum over a decade giving a unique platform, and gently inviting students to showcase their creativity.
The books were then released by Sister Noelle who in her short address spoke of how privileged each of the students were having reached tertiary education and encouraging them to carry the baton forward in gratitude for all the Sisters who worked in the college. It was an academically enriching session for us as we realized the treasure and history encapsulated in a work of rich historical significance!
