In the first part of his contribution, the author speaks about the publication of the second (revised) edition of Art and Alternative, published for the first time in 1992 - during a time of fierce repression of the cultural and artistic alternative, or to be more precise, of the remains of the once strong and respected Serbian (especially Belgrade) alternative scene, by the then ultranationalist state authorities in Serbia. This very alternative culture, discussed by Milena D. Šešic in the mentioned book, was one of the most intractable 'pockets of resistance' against the aggressive nationalist politics of the time. The second part of the text presents the new book by Milena D. Šešic, Indian Theatre: Tradition and Activism, which is framed as a 'journal' of a field research carried out on contemporary Indian theatre. In the course of her 'action research', Milena D. Šešic visited several important centres of contemporary Indian theatre and met with many charismatic makers on this diverse scene of which we know so little about in Slovenia.
