A charity fête for India, in favour of an environmental project
at Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, is arranged in Lund Saturday
10 May 2003, from 18.30. At the fête, which is arranged by the organization
(Sustainable University) and the student wing of the Swedish
Organisation for Individual Relief (Individuell människohjälp,
IM), Indian food will be served and some belly-dancing will be performed.
At 20.00 there will be a musical performance by the Indo-Swedish Rabindrasangheet
singer Bubu Munshi-Eklund (photo). Venue: Basement premises,
Parentesen students house, Södra Esplanaden 30, Lund. More

SASNET arranges a concert with Amit Chatterjee and Suman Laha, two young
Indian classical musicians from Kolkata, at Lund on Sunday 25
May 2003, at 19.00.
Amit Chatterjee is a talented tabla player who has frequently toured Europe
and the USA, whereas Suman Laha (photo to the right) plays the
guitar in a rather unusual mode, like an Indian veena.
The concert is arranged in collaboration with the Zimba Marimba World
Music Studio in Lund, which also provides for the concert hall at Qvantenborgsvägen
15 (right at the crossing with Kobjersvägen) in the northwestern
part of Lund.
Tickets are sold for 100 SEK each and should preferrably be ordered
in beforehand from Peta Axelsson.

SASNET/ Swedish South Asian Studies Network
SASNET is a national network
for research, education, and information about South Asia, based at
Lund University. The aim is to encourage and promote an open and dynamic
networking process, in which Swedish researchers co-operate with researchers
in South Asia and globally.
The network is open to all sciences. Priority is given to co-operation
between disciplines and across faculties, as well as institutions in
the Nordic countries and in South Asia. The basic idea is that South
Asian studies will be most fruitfully pursued in co-operation between
researchers, working in different institutions with a solid base in
their mother disciplines.
The network is financed by Sida (Swedish
International Development Cooperation Agency) and by Lund
