  "description": "<p>This paper attempts to read Manjula Padmanabhan&rsquo;s play Harvest under the humanist scanner of the<br>\nVisible Human Project (VHP). The VHP not only dilutes the distinction between living and non-living<br>\nbodies, the project in turn metamorphoses human substance into bio-graphics. Appropriating the bodies<br>\nof the not-fully-humans and converting them into medical offerings and sacrificial objects are aspects<br>\nvisible both in the field of VHP and the ever-expanding arena of organ &lsquo;donation&rsquo;. However,<br>\nPadmanabhan&rsquo;s text destroys the myth of the renouncing, surrendering woman submitting her (dead)<br>\nbody for the greater good of society through the libidinal, uncontrollable, interrogating body of Jaya.</p>",
