Current Cultural Events connected to South Asia:

• 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 Hållbart Universitet (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 information from the organizing committee.

• 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
