In the framework of the International Book Day, the Indian ambassador, Bala Venkatesh Varma, organized in his residence the presentation of “When Mirrors are Windows”, a essay by Guillermo Rodríguez on the work of poet A.K. Ramanujan.
Rodríguez, director of Casa de la India since its creation in 2003, explained that his work aims to “make known the pioneering work of this Indian author and scholar through the exploration of his poetic and aesthetic thinking.”
During his conversation with the director of El Norte de Castilla newspaper, Carlos Aganzo, and the doctor in Sanskrit philosophy, Juan Arnau, Rodriguez justified the title “When Mirrors are Windows”, since “the mirrors, at the same time they reflect the Image also distort it and introduce us, as from a window, into a new dimension”.
After the colloquium, Guillermo Rodríguez read a selection of the works of Ramanujan performed with the dances of Monica de la Fuente before half a hundred guests. Among them were the secretary general of the Spain-India Council Foundation, Alonso Dezcallar; the ambassador of Bangladesh, Hassan Mahmood Khandker; the Minister of the Embassy of Romania, Ana Maria Almasan; and the charge d’affaires of Afghanistan, Mohd Homayun Mokammel.
