  2. Dear Organisers
    I am interested in this event. My area of interest is Indian Buddhism. So I wanted to enquire about whether Indian Buddhism would be applicable to this event. I am also capable of presenting a paper on “Dhammapada” and/or “Therigatha” but from a gender perspective that will be critical of Buddhist philosophy. Kindly also send me application form (at ) if my area is applicable to this event.
    Thanking you
