About JCF MRT Group of Mumbai; India
JCF MRT Group of Mumbai is the first JCF MRT initiative not only in India; but also in Asia. This initiative has been taken up by Dr.Sunil R.Parab who is currently working as Group Leader and Coordinator for this Group. The JCF MRT activities are being conducted in Department of Sanskrit; University of Mumbai which is also the home for World’s one of the first Academic Courses in Comparative Mythology. Thus this MRT also associates Joseph Campbell Foundation with Department of Sanskrit; University of Mumbai.
The innovative concept of starting this group was put forward by Mr.William Linn who is also helping this group as the Mentor. Mr.Martin Weyers hasbeen very kind and supportive throughout this entire journey. Mr.Stephen Gerringer has also inspired this group to execute its meets in Mumbai. Dr.Madhavi Narsalay; assistant professor of Department of Sanskrit and renowned Mythologist in India is the Mother of this MRT in true sense. She actively participates from planning to the execution of various Tasks taken up by this Group.
Since the Group assembles in Academic Campus for each MRT meet; the teaching as well as non-teaching staff and students of the Department help and support each associated activity. Ms. Radhika Radia is JCF MRT’s internal coordinator for the Department. Mr. Neelkanth Mehta and Ms. Dipti Anerao are supporting the a/v recording of the sessions. It would not be possible to mention each member’s contribution in introduction part; but as we proceed with each meet and activity; we will highlight the specific contributions of the members.
