An animated soiree and spectacle, a reading (in English) of her new collection of ‘Eco-Poetry’ by Dr. Fatima Shahnaz, actor from the Institut des Arts Dramatiques Rene Simon in Paris, theatre director from New York, writer, journalist, professor (emerita), humanitarian.

From the tiger jungles of Jim Corbett in royal India, the tribal forays of the anthropologist Verrier Elvin, to the great American prairies of North America … A visionary sweep in ‘eco-poetry’ combining anthropomorphic animals in the range of Aesop’s fables, Lafontaine’s satirical poems and the bio-diversity and splendors of our eco-sphere. Grave modern issues are addressed in lyrical verse through language accessible to young and old regarding the degradation of India’s environment and vanishing green spaces, and vegetal and animal species; the depletion of the world’s forest-cover; the extinction of wildlife through the man-animal conflict, global warming and climate change – all in dazzling imagery.
