Our state is drained by a fascinating crisscross of rivers while the briny waves of the Bay of Bengal lap against its shores. Indeed, for our poets, writers, singers, musicians, sculptors, dramatists and filmmakers, the river and the sea have often been the Muse. But sadly enough, this creative debt has gone largely unacknowledged, as the beneficiaries have shown little concern for our rivers that continue to degenerate and perish in the midst of our collective ignorance and neglect.
The interactive Seminar on Marinescape: Creativity and Crisis of Bengal, held in February 2003, was a novel venture in which our writers and artists were brought together to take up the cause of the rivers and the seas.
The Marinescape handbook contains papers presented by distinguished writers on the theme at this event.
