The entity took its name from a political novel of the same name by Shivnath Sastri. The entity, please. A periodical by the same author is referred to as a pioneer in children’s literature. The periodical shares its name with a cult character of pop culture who came to Page 3 a few years back because of a mistaken accusation leading to the disappearance of an evil man. The news was not taken lightly by someone, described as one who comes in a sandal and goes out with a scandal. The name and the funda, Please.

  136. 136. GOVB Fest 2.0 - 2019 The Big Bong Theory QMs – Sourav,Avishek,Soumalya Q40 It is an ongoing project which since 1996 has brought together artists and the communities of Melbourne (Australia) & Kolkata (Calcutta, India) to explore their cities. In the context of rising environmentalism and debates about the impacts of globalisation, the project has demonstrated how new linkages can be made through a public arts practice of inter-cultural collaboration. Through a time where Kolkata’s struggling heritage has faced a persistent threat of closure and the operation of Melbourne’s has been privatised and automated, the project has sought to provoke a broader, global engagement in the culturally enriching and environmentally sustaining contribution that the entities can make to these cities. Give me the name of this project starring the journey of this heritage.
