Raza Kazim Sanjan Nagar Institute of Philosophy and Arts is a lawyer, philosopher and political activist. He is also the inventor of a musical instrument called Saagar Veena and a photographer of international standards. He is a lapsed Marxist — he prefers to call himself a post-Marxist. One of the top lawyers in the country, Kazim has handled many seminal cases in his long legal career.
Most importantly, perhaps, Kazim is a witness. He is a witness to the history of this country — its political and social history. In 1995, he set up ‘Sanjan Nagar Institute of Philosophy and Arts’ (SIPA), as a laboratory for developing and testing this emerging theory, which he calls ‘Evolutionary Mentology’.
