With the wisdom afforded by hindsight, it seems that the evolution of Seagull Books, as it stands now, has had an organic, natural trajectory. Of course, in the moment, it rarely feels that way. Naveen Kishore: Indeed yes. Produced while we were still in college by a dear friend-mentor, Sumit Roy.
I was his Stage Manager. This was in March The books grew out of a need to document theatre and film and off-the-beaten-track art. More than just events. So yes. The logic I mean. Though the impulse to create has always been what led to the things we did. And the way. We did them. This coupled with the immediacy of survival. I had to start earning a living from age sixteen for various reasons. This, in our cultural context, is of some interest because the arts at the time were always meant to be an after-five hobby!
You were never meant to make a living from the arts! You continue to reach out to kindred spirits, to friends at home and abroad to find those who are inclined and able to help you realise the goals you have. This sounds like an act of faith, a faith I want to say, in the desire of others to be part of a greater creative vision.
What keeps you going when plans fall through, funding for a project seems elusive, or people try to take advantage of you? In quite the same way that, say, breathing is. At Seagull it is also a way of life stemming from the untrained nature of our learning. The manner in which everything that is taught. And therefore learnt. That which arrives in quite the manner in which unexpected guests do. Uninvited but nevertheless precious. As in the instinctive way of solving problems. Or the instinctive way in which we negotiate the art of being human.

Become the community we have. There is a swift mental math that happens. In every decision you take. Not its opposite. Or even add up in the time-tested way of all commerce.

So yes, the romantic is not just a wishful space where thought and extreme affection for an idea conjoin. It is in fact a hard-earned ability verging on an ideology that practices this notion of Romance. You love the idea presented to you—as event, as book, as art, as performance, as design—and you see the possibility of making it happen.
Regardless of the odds.

Romantic therefore in the sense that you take immense pleasure in battling odds to create something that may not have at that moment in time happened otherwise. This is very aptly put. The act is the impulse that triggers the activity we engage in our dailyness. The awareness that runs parallel to all of what we do is that there is always a solution. This too is faith. As in the strong belief that the seeking of a solution is what needs to be translated into the finding or locating of one. Not simply some notion that things have a way of getting sorted! The people around us instinctively buy into this because it sounds sincere.

The sincere is full of possibility. Even hope. Having said that, all of this also often goes wrong.
So the possibility that is promised could go either way. And when it does there is genuinely no desire to level blame on others. Sustainability is not linked to the time-bound nature of project funding. It is a part of the whole picture from to The fact that we have sustained our beliefs for four decades is what it is about. So when in practical terms you run out of funding like we have for the Publishing School, you just have to find ways of carrying on.
Until the status quo changes. Or until the sheer force of what you manage to achieve with a particular project builds up a natural ground swell of support. Indulging beyond the brief human temptation of wallowing in some sense of being let down is not an option. Yes, it creeps into our beings. Like hurt. And is embraced.
