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

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

ALL ARE WELCOME. OPEN TO DONATION.

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.

Country Drive - Book Reading
Sun Dec 2, 4:00 PM
Lamakaan Programme Council

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.

University as a SiteofResistance
Thu Dec 13, 6:00 PM
Mohan and Rajesh
The University as a Site of Resistance analyses massive protests that emerged in the aftermath of Rohith Vemula's death in Hyderabad Central University as well as the Azadi Campaign started by Jawaharlal Nehru University students in Delhi in 2016. Taking Osmania University in Hyderabad as a case study, the book provides an ethnographic account of the emergence of one of India's longest student movements - the movement for Telangana statehood. Since its inception in the 1960s to its culmination in the formation of Telangana state in 2014, students at Osmania University played a decisive role. The book discusses protest strategies, methods and networks among students. It also examines the role played by various caste and sub-caste groups and civil society in making the movement a success. The author argues that contemporary identity based student movements are primarily cultural movements as the traditional caste and class analysis becomes redundant to explain such contemporary collective action. The book establishes these unique resistances as New Social Movements and claim that these movements contribute to the democratization of institutional spaces. In this context, the volume provides a conceptual debate on contemporary cultural politics among university students.
