Abstract

The following papers, mainly written in Bangla, concentrate on the roles of social science and humanities in the domain of specialized environmental science. If the disasters caused by climate change are believed to be inevitable fact, as predicted by some of the scientists, what shall be done by the social “engineers” (!)? Is it not the moral responsibility of the organic intellectuals, barring technical intelligentsia, to leave their mechanical reproduction of cultural capital and join their hands to reduce the poisonous effects of contemporary military-industrial society?

Many of them, specially my institutional colleagues (both geologists and economists) do not ‘believe’ the entire notion of anthropogenic global warming and the sustainable retreat from the developmental paradigm is not in their priority list; some of my communist friends and students do not care for such ‘myth’. All of them ridicule me for my concern.

However, my…

We, the citizens of India, are offering the following bouquet of films to the exceedingly Honourable PM Narendra Modi and the moral exemplar Home Minister Amit Shah in their joint crusade to restore the democratic values along with peace and tolerance by basing it on horizontal, non-violent mutual aid.

Dear Prime Minister of India,

We are aware that after working for 16-18 hours every day, you are too tired. So, you need some entertainment to avoid the burnout syndrome. We also know that the sword of Damocles is swinging upon your head. This sword is mainly used by the tukde tukde gang, urban naxals, anti-nationals, liberandus etc. Thus, we are offering you the following movies for the sake of your relaxation:

Dear co-citizens,

Hope that you are doing well during the financial catastrophe that includes unemployment, hyper-inflation and post-pandemic hazards. We are the victims of the Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Limited (DHFL) Scam, the biggest financial scam of India, in which the ruling party is allegedly involved. Even there is an allegation of terror-funding or political donation to the BJP, the richest political party of India. For this reason, DHFL has collapsed and we have lost our hard-earned money. The concentration of wealth in the hands of one or two superrich businessmen is the cause of all our suffering. Whether it be a marriage ceremony or emergency medical treatment for ourselves– everything is jeopardized due to the non-payment of 77% of our deposits. Though we are not criminals, we still have to suffer from this different type of “capital” punishment.

Keeping in mind the popular proverbs: “हमारी भूल…

Sub: Requesting for the inclusion of the climate agenda in the Bharat Jodo Yatra

Dear Rahul & Priyanka,

We, the inhabitants of the planet earth, are encountering two major problems. We would like to point out those problems in the context of the#Bharat_Jodo_Yatra,with an emphasis on the issue of environmental apocalypse.

The two problems can be summarized in the following manner:

1. Catastrophic natural ecosystem or anthropogenic glocal (global+local), what is popularly known as “Climate Crisis” or the epoch of the climate emergency. Human beings, as geological agents, since the Industrial Revolution, have destroyed the biodiversity of the earth. The international climate politics or environmental activism makes it our duty asspecies-beings(homo sapiens sapiens,ignoring the ascribed caste or creed-based extrinsic identities) to include the climate agenda as part of our grassrootsrealpolitik.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I, the undersigned, Dr. Debaprasad Bandyopadhyay (S/O Late Sadhan Prasad Bandyopadhyay), age 57 years, have tried my best to file a complaint online through the Lokpal portal. However, all my efforts ended in a smoke as the website, perhaps due to some technical glitch, kept on redirecting to the Login page whenever I clicked on the “Save as Draft” button. Even Robert Bruce would have been frustrated by seeing this type of malfunctioning of the Lokpal portal in the Digital India! 
I, an FD Holder of the Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Limited (DHFL), am appealing to you for seeking justice regarding the irregularities and illegalities noticed in the DHFL Resolution Process by the RBI-appointed Committee of Creditors (CoC). All…

II. AGAINST HATRED

Another version of this doha of Kabir ends with the line: “Kabir says, ‘O Sadhu! God is the breath of all breath.'” (Trans. Rabindranath Thakur), instead of saying that God inheres in faith. Here, Thakur triggered the strength of breath as practiced in corporeal sadhana (dehatattva). Hence, he supplemented the word “faith” with “breath of all breath”.

These songs have been put together for the convenience of the non-violent civil disobedience movement against the monolithic autocracy…
