Jan 30, 2011: Atlas Sunday Club Philosophy Salon

The new year's first Atlas Sunday Club Philosophy Salon will be held on the following date:
January 30, 2011
5:30 PM onwards
Health Center Building
University of Mumbai
Kalina Campus (On the right-hand side as soon as you enter the campus gates)
Santacruz East
Mumbai - 55

First, we have some good news to share!
Professor Mugdha Karnik, who teaches at the University of Mumbai and is a fan of Ayn Rand's novels, has just completed her translation of Atlas Shrugged into Marathi. Her work is availabled through Diamond Publishers. For more details, read the post immediately below this one.

Professor Karnik has accepted our invitation to attend the Atlas Sunday Club Salon and read out some of her favorite passages from the novel in Marathi. It would certainly be unusual to hear the sound of Atlas Shrugged in a regional language.

Next, we shall screen a short 3-minute film "The Sixth Sense" that dramatizes the concept of mysticism versus rationality. We will specifically discuss the influence of new-age mysticism--the concepts of ego-illusion and Universal Consciousness--and the arguments that refute it.

Gear up for an EXCITING meeting ahead!
For assistance with directions, please call: Deepak at 0 9769 331 585 or Jerry Johnson at 99303 12 685.
