Anton Chekov's play Three Sisters was staged at Jawaharlal Nehru University in the Capital this past week. There have only been two previous attempts to produce this play on stage in India. The concept was provided by a student of JNU's School of Arts and Aesthetics.
The play is about the privileged class of Russia, their lives and aspirations and in many ways reflects the reality of present day Indian society. Instead of using a professional stage, the director chose the natural spaces of the JNU campus for the plot. Maximum use of natural spaces such as building corridors with pillars, pavements and the university's sprawling lawn allowed the actors to present the play in an attractive style. More than 400 viewers, including JNU professors, students and art-lovers saw the play.
Eurasian Foundation, a Delhi-based think tank, prepared and staged this play in association with Sehar, an amateur theatre group, consisting mostly of JNU students.
To encourage education beyond the campus, Lovely Professional University's Directorate of Open and Distance Learning has launched its distance education study programmes across the country.
A dynamic web portal, e-learning portal, prospectus, comprehensive study material and e-kiosks have been launched as part of the initiative.
During the first year, 30 study programmes of five disciplines are to be established.

Application forms can be obtained from the Academy or downloaded from www.rcaamu.com or http://www.amu.ac.in/rca.htm
