Shikha Mahipal, who is one of the 12 students exhibiting their photographs, says her conceptual works are based on Arana, a Sanskrit word meaning ‘depth’. According to Shikha, her work reflects human desire and the journey of life and death. “We as humans have so many desires. Some get fulfilled while others remain unfulfilled until death. That is why the egg used in my pictures signifies birth and simultaneously death - as an egg also denotes that the evolution of the individual did not take place, hence leaving a lot of desires unfulfilled.” Mumbai: TISS organises students' film festival IBNLive ...

ON HUMAN DANGERS Prosperity and austerity in contemporary philosophy December 10, 2012 Ian Bogost
OOO holds as a premise that philosophy, theory, and culture in general has been too content in putting human affairs at the center of being and therefore discourse, and that instead we should allow all things(including people) to be of potentially equal impact and concern. So, in that respect, OOO does ask us to expand our attention. And it makes this request on ontological grounds, because it holds metaphysics to be an additive rather than a subtractive philosophical medium. What does baffle me is the assumption that taking the OOO position entails a turning away from human beings and human suffering in particular.
Anticipating Buber, he (Vyasa) saw history as the encounter of the temporal and the eternal, the empirical and the transcendental; and anticipating Berdyaev, he saw in history a divine programme for divinising human existence.
I hero worshipped [Sri] Aurobindo in my college days; but now half a century later, I am terribly disappointed. His discussion of time and eternity is wholly derived from that of Boethius; page after page in [The] Life Divine is watered down Plotinus. His vision of History has the bookishness of Hegel’s tidy schema, Spirit fulfilling its schedule of progress with no problem whatever. But history is fatefully open ended, for man can abuse his freedom to become an Asura and wreck himself too thereby. Man can regress to a cannibal, Bhima drinking Duhsasana’s blood. Man may commit race-suicide, as nearly happened in Kurukshetra where only 9 men survived out of 18 vast armies.
I am afraid [Sri] Aurobindo’s inflated rhetoric does not see the terror and the tears at the heart of things. I must confess your casual rating of Vyasa and Berdyaev vis-a-vis [Sri] Aurobindo shocked me. [
