The book Decolonial Existence and Urban Sensibility: A Study on Mahesh Elkunchwar meticulously reflects upon some of the selected translated plays of Marathi playwright Mahesh Elkunchwar. It revolves around the themes of decolonial existence and urban sensibility in contemporary India as portrayed in his plays with respect to post-independent urban existence, socio-cultural existence and gender. The book also looks forward to establish a counterargument against the idealized and totalitarian definitions of West-centric existentialist philosophy, and establish indigenous dimensions of decolonial existence within specific contexts. It dismantles the colonially structured existing binaries of urban/rural, ethical/unethical and high culture/low culture through the diverse portrayal of human relationships in contemporary India and broadly addresses two inter-mingled perspectives. Firstly, it outlines the thematic and dramatic perspectives of the selected plays of Mahesh Elkunchwar and secondly, it explores the multi-dimensional philosophical perspectives that encapsulate the theoretical latitude of decoloniality and urban sensibility.

3 reviews for Decolonial Existence and Urban Sensibility

  1. Mohommed Ali Shah

    The book encapsulates a very unique theme in Indian theatre which has hardly been explored till now. Analyzing Marathi drama from post-colonial or de-colonial perspectives with respect to the translated plays of Elkunchwar will indeed add a new dimension to Indian theatre studies. Sayan has done a commendable job.

  2. Dr Gautam Chatterjee

    The peripheral fragrance of this literary attempt by Sayan is spectacularly designed and lucidly reciprocal.

  3. Vikram Gokhle

    Dr Sayan Dey, seems to have done a vast study of ELKUNCHWAR. The study not only of his theatre literature, but also of his other work as well.
