Safe sharing space
Sun Nov 11, 2:00 PM
Program Council Lamakaan
The safe sharing space is an initiative to enable open conversations about sexual harassment amongst the victims and allies. The aim is to bring together people who want to share their experiences and support each other through the journey.

The organizers encourage only the people who have experienced harassment or professionals who are willing to support them to participate in the event. It is not a space to discuss the “me too” movement or the implications of it, rather it is a space to support each other in a difficult phase of life. Participants are strongly recommended to follow confidentiality and those who wish to do so, can stay anonymous.

The discussions will happen on the terrace of the building ensuring that whatever is said in the group will stay within.

Through powerful compelling stories of MAVAs work among adolescent boys and young men in interrogating Masculinity as depicted in the film, Harish and Altamash will stimulate the gathered audience on the various tools and methodologies used to engage boys and young men on gender issues. Citing examples of the organization's journey in the past 25 years, insights would be provided on the out-of-the box methods used by the organization to reach out to young men and how these could be adapted by others including individuals wanting to work on Masculinities.

Understanding Election Manifesto
Thu Nov 15, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
The Election season is here and with this season we see the political parties releasing poll manifestoes. These manifestoes promise stars and loaded with goodies and freebies. There are guidelines by the Election Commission of India on the concept of poll manifesto e.g.
Election manifesto - concept and relevance
A manifesto is generally defined as a published declaration of the intentions, motives or views of an individual, group, political party or government whosoever issues it. A manifesto usually comprises a previously published opinion or public consensus and/or promotes a new idea with prescriptive notions for carrying out changes for future. Oxford dictionary defines manifesto as a public declaration of the policy and aims of a group such as a political party. Thus an election manifesto is a published document containing a declaration of the ideology, intentions, views, policies and programmes of a political party. The Election Manifestos are generally drafted by the Political Parties keeping an eye on forthcoming elections and are generally published and well publicized.

As already stated above, the election manifesto normally contains the declared ideology of the political Party concerned in general and its policies and programmes for the Country/State and people at large. It, therefore, serves as a reference document or benchmark for the public at large for what a political party stands for. By comparing the ideologies, policies and programmes of the political parties, the electors can decide which party they should vote for to meet their expectations and aspirations.

How do the citizens look at the poll manifestoes? How the trends of poll manifestoes changed over the years in the country?

Join us for a discussion to talk about these broader issues related to poll manifestoes

Guest Speakers:
(1) Prof Kancha Illiah: Kancha Ilaiah, who now refers to himself symbolically as Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd, is an Indian political theorist, writer and activist for Dalit rights. He writes in both English and Telugu.

Trampling Dissent
Tue Nov 20, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
Trampling dissent and absence of democratic spaces in academic institutions

In this event, the topic will be discussed by taking a recent case of eviction of two students from Symbiosis law school Hyderabad who were evicted because they were asking for justice and a due procedural enquiry on sexual harrassment incidences by a professor against many students. The students were evicted without any prior notice and any enquiry into the matter because college administration felt that they are damaging the brand of symbiosis. Such authoritarian decisions by the college administration to curb dissent against students protesting for their rights should be condemned. We extend our solidarity to the two students who are fighting this battle on behalf of the student community to create more open educational spaces.

The two evicted students will join us for the event to tell us about how the students voices against injustice inside the campus of symbiosis law school are regularly suppressed in order to safeguard their public image.

All are Welcome! Entry free and open to all

Kehat Kabira : Songs of Kabir
Thu Nov 22, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan
Kahat Kabira: Songs of Kabir in Malwa tradition

Lamakaan invites one and all to an evening of Kabir Songs with Kaluram Bamaniya.

Kaluram Bamaniya belongs to a vibrant tradition of singing bhakti poets such as Kabir, Gorakhnath, Bananath and Meera in the Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh. He comes from a family of farmers, but has taken to singing as a full time occupation himself. From the early age of 9, Kaluram started accompanying his father, grandfather and uncle on the manjiras. When he was 13 years old he ran away from home and went to Rajasthan, where he absorbed a wide repertoire of songs from an itinerant Mirasi singer Ram Niwas Rao for 1-2 years. For Kaluram, singing Kabir is not merely a profession, it's a way of life. "You get a lot of power, you get fearless by singing Kabir," he says. His impish wit adds colour to the direct simplicity and soulfulness of his songs.

While continuing to be part of the satsang tradition in Malwa, Kaluram and his troupe give many public performances all over India. He sings and plays the 5-stringed tambura and khadtaal and will be accompanied by:
Ram Prasad Parmar on Harmonium,
Devidas Bairagi - Dholak,
Sajjan Singh Parmar - Nagnagaadi
Uttam Singh Bamaniya - Manjira

Ek Akeli Aurat
Sun Nov 25, 7:30 PM
Rangadhara Theatre Streams
Brief story: What does a woman really want? What is the meaning of love and
companionship for a woman? Is she restricted by the boundaries of society and the
definitions that people have defined for her? The story of one such woman who is
talkative yet silently resilient, confident yet scared, a fighter but also a victim.
Being trapped in her house is a symbol of the shackles she feels around her. When
she seeks company and love is that a genuine need or a guilty indulgence?
A woman who is frustrated in marriage, is haunted by crank caller, money lender
and also exploited by her perverted brother-in-law, is in love with younger boy and
has no qualms about sharing with an acquaintance her marital problems as well as
private moments spent with her lover?
Anger, frustration, restlessness, hope, regret, guilt and determination are
just some of the inner turmoil of the protagonist.

Women* in Public Spaces
Sun Dec 2, 2:00 PM
Programme Council Lamakaan
Let’s talk about Women* in Public Spaces.

We want to invite you to join us in an open discussion at Lamakaan on the 2nd Dec at 2-4 pm. As part of the exhibition ‘Women* in Public Spaces in Hyderabad’ which will open on the 30th Nov, 6.30 pm at Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, we want to come together, exchange experiences and ideas, reflect on internalized gender norms, self-regulation and social power structures shaped by patriarchy.

Information about the exhibition:
In the context of the uprising #metoo movement in India, the exhibition ‘Women* in Public Spaces in Hyderabad’ wants to give an impulse to think about the way women* experience the city. The multimedia exhibition pursues the issue of how women* experience Hyderabad in their daily lives, which strategies they develop to navigate public spaces, what restricts their access and hence their social participation and how they fight to (re)claim their city as should be their fundamental right as citizens.

The visitor is introduced to the portraits of various young women* from Hyderabad who are talking about their struggles and concerns navigating the city as well as their visions for a future Hyderabad where they can exist as human beings, exactly the way they want to be. These individual perspectives are embedded in a broader social context by a short film which brings together the thoughts of different local activists and professionals on the issue of women* in public spaces in Hyderabad.

The exhibition is held at Goethe Zentrum Hyderabad from 30th Nov – 6th Dec 2018.

Please bring headphones if possible.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Country Drive is a dialogue, a conversation, a meditation on lives lived, a journey across time and space between two poets, Sukrita and Yasmin Ladha who bring in their unique sensibilities to the subjects they tackle. Yet, their differences are undercut by their familiarity, their love for the country they were born, Kenya, and their travels to each others’ homelands, India and Canada. The result is a unique collection of poems, at once, illuminating, life-affirming and provocative.

ABOUT THE POETS
SUKRITA is an honorary fellow of the International Writing Programme at the University of Iowa. A recipient of the Indo-Canadian Shastri Fellowship, in addition to many other fellowships and residencies, she has published extensively on Partition literature, cultural diversity and women’s literature. Her latest collection of poems is Dream Catcher (2015). Her poetry has been widely translated and she is herself a known translator.

YASMIN LADHA is a poet, novelist and an essayist from Alberta, Canada. Blue Sunflower Startle, a novel, her most recent work, was published by Freehand Books, in 2010.
