ABOUT THE BOOK

This book is the outcome of the exploration of the theme navigating through the sub – themes such as breaking silence in our world; silence and politics ; the philosophy of silence. We pondered over the debate of silence as agency and silence and agency. Literary narratives across the globe have time and again pointed to the nexus between silence and agency. The disturbing relationship between silence and society has provoked us often to interrogate the problematic nature of this phenomenon.
