To provide science students another avenue to recharge their creativity, Living Science has started a new series where philosophy, literature, art & music will be discussed by the experts of the area. This series is started with the awareness that all successful scientists have at least one serious hobby be it playing some musical instruments (Einstein played violin), listening to classical music or even participating in dramatics. The talk by Dr Milind Wakankar addresses a curious form of affiliation in Kabir. On the one hand there was probably a unique and irrepressible philosopher bearing that name who signed a small set of poems. On the other hand, for the past five hundred years legions of poets (belonging mostly to the very poor) have composed Kabir poems that are signed under his name, not their own.
