The Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts is visualized as a centre encompassing the study of all the arts which lie within a dimension of mutual interdependence, interrelated with nature, social structure and cosmology. Kashmir is considered the crown of India and has also been called – ‘Paradise on Earth. The docu-drama “Stree  Desh”, is based on the research monograph written by Dr. Ashish Kaul based on his research on the lives and times of 13 legendary women from Kashmir, under the project of IGNCA. On this occasion, English translation of “Stree Desh”  book was also launched.

Singh Baghel, Minister of State for Law and Justice.

Speaking at the event, Smt. Meenakshi Lekhi, Honorable Minister of State for External Affairs and Culture, said that “Stree Desh” is about bringing narratives of the conduct of 13 women rulers of Kashmir through storytelling to the common people. She added that this is a beautiful story developed and conceptualized by none other than Dr. Sonal Mansingh as she had envisioned about telling the story about benevolent rulers of Kashmir and she had put her sensibilities into the dance drama. She reiterated that the codification of dance forms and ‘Natyashastra’ happened much before Christ.  She concluded by saying that “Stree Desh” is the celebration of gender justice and all that India stands for.
