This book serves as the corridor to one's 'self'. Begun as a humble attempt to trace the performance history of Bengal it has passed through various planes of interrogation, and interpretation, until the notion of nation gained a new life in the performative space. This book has tried to trace the winding path of the emergent emotion of nationhood as it developed as a nuanced image of 'self', thereby locating the beginning of that emotion of national 'self'.
