Urthona Issue 24

'Indian Odyssey'

Issue (24) released May 2007

Urthona 24 WELCOME TO OUR INDIAN ISSUE.We have wanted to bring out an issue dedicated to Indian culture for quite a while, but it is only recently that we felt we had the courage and the range of talented writers to bring such a project to fruition. So at last we have collected together here a rich and fascinating range of material, in order to give just a few tiny glimpses of the vast artistic heritage of India. All in all this is an immensely exciting, yet demanding time to be an artist in India, as the country faces the challenges of industrial growth and of being an increasingly vital player on the world stage.
