Must Attend: Tushar Joag Talk at Mohile Parikh Center

August 23, 2011 9:36 am

Tushar Joag is equal parts activist to artist. He has created a dummy corporation called Unicell, which mimics a state entity designed to help its citizens or rather “suggests absurd solutions” to urban situations. Earlier this year, he encased himself in a cocoon of string to draw awareness to Binayak Sen’s imprisonment. Last year, taking a page from Don Quixote, Che Guevara and other worldly travellers’ books, he undertook a perilous motorcycle journey from Mumbai to Shanghai, passing through the Sardar Sarovar and Three Gorges dams on the way. Hear Joag, ever a precise speaker, talk about his journey at a presentation and discussion entitled “Riding Rocinante: From Bombay to Shanghai” at the Little Theatre at the National Centre for the Performing Arts on Tuesday, August 23.
