Language will no longer be a barrier for Santhalis wanting to read Midsummer Night’s Dream.
For, noted Santhal writer Biswanath Tuddu has recently translated the famous work of William Shakespeare. Tuddu spoke to The Telegraph during his visit here for the 4th International Santhal Conference at Tata auditorium.
Tuddu, who hails from Orissa, said: “It is a classic work of the great writer and I wanted people of my community, who cannot read English, to appreciate it. It took me two months to get the work translated into Santhali.”
