A Comedy in Hindi

Written by Dr. Kailash Chandra Sharma
Directed by Sandeep Sahu

Date : 12th April 2019
Time : 8.00pm
Venue : Lamakaan, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.

The play ‘Aaj Ka Yamlok’ is a meaningful satire depicting the corruption that is taking a front seat in our contemporary society. If there is a law to understand gravity, there must be something to understand life as well, and this play explains "the modern life" in a unique way.

‘Yamraj’ the God of Death in his previous incarnation was a chief minister and all the officials of his ‘Yamlok’ were the citizens of his state. Not to mention they all indulged in corruption. Now in ‘Yamlok’ they dispose of their duties with the same ‘earnestness’. Problems arise when God himself decides to inspect this Yamlok. How does this modern time Yamraj find his way out, let us sit back and discover…..

Ashaadh Ka Ek Din
Sat Apr 13, 7:30 PM
Safarnama Theatre
Ashadh Ka Ek Din is a Hindi play by Mohan Rakesh that debuted in 1958 and is considered the first Modern Hindi play.The title of the play derives from the second verse of the Sanskrit dramatist Kalidas's play Meghadūta. It literally means A day in the month of Ashadh. Mohan Rakesh noted in the introduction to a subsequent play, King-swans of the waves, that, whenever he read Kalidas' Meghdoot, he felt that the poet had distilled out his sense of acute guilt and alienation from his own being into that play, and that this realization is what motivated Mohan Rakesh's writing of Ashadh ka ek din.The play received a Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for best play in 1959 and has been staged by several prominent directors to critical acclaim. This play explains the facts about time, the cost you have to pay for the oppourtunities given by time and the time doesn't wait.

Earth Day Movie: Cowspiracy
Sat Apr 20, 11:30 AM
Dr. Arun R
With extreme weather events occurring with unprecedented frequency and natural resources depleting rapidly, environmental degradation is a matter of grave concern for most people today. Climate Change is also an important social justice issue, as it affects the disprivileged the worst - those who are perhaps the least responsible for it in the first place. ’Cowspiracy’ is a ground-breaking yet humorous documentary that uncovers one of the most devastating, yet most ignored human acts, despite mounting scientific evidence, and offers a path to sustainability.

Are we ready to invest two hours of our Saturday to make our planet thriving, for our kids and their kids; for those disprivileged who will be the worst affected; to do our precious bit to prevent islands going under sea?

From Ameer Khusro to Tagore: A Journey through the Syncretic Tradition of Indian Music

This is a presentation to remind ourselves as we pass through a difficult period of communal
tensions and violence, about India’s history of syncretic culture. The people of India have lived
in peace and harmony over the ages. Despite differences in religions, they have all contributed to
building a very rich and composite culture, and this is beautifully reflected in our literature and
music.
This programme is a musical journey through India’s traditions of secular poetry & music, in a
historical order beginning from the 13 the century to the present day. Most of the music is
composed and sung by Dr Subhendu Ghosh and is based on Hindustani ragas or other musical
forms including the traditional folk songs. The narrative includes the following poets – Hazrat
Ameer Khusro, Kabir, Guru Nanak, Mian Taan Sen, Bulle Shah, Lalan Faqir, Nazeer
Akbarabadi, Ram Prasad Bismil, Haribans Ray Bachchan, Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Rabindranath
Tagore.
This is a small effort to highlight the poetic genius of our Indian poets and pay our tribute to
those who dedicated their lives for a Secular India.

The program will have a Poetry recitation by Laltu at the beginning of the event.

Corporate Education
Sun Apr 21, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan & The Dialogues Association
Corporate Education: Students' Suicides

The education system in India today is appalling. In the last few years higher education has become a costly affair. This made higher education a distant dream for the students under the poverty line and students of the middle class families are taking loans to provide education to their children. There has been a considerable decrease in number of free seats in public and private universities because of this the competition is at all time high. This competition has become the breeding ground for ruthless coaching institutions which are costly and have a 16 hour long schedule in a day along with weekly exams. This environment of constant pressure, lack of physical activity and guilt has lead to the sharp increase in mental health problems among students especially depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies. In a span of 2 months in 2017 , 47 students commited suicide in Telangana and Andhra pradesh and around 18 students go missing every year.

There is neither any investigation on these suicides nor any attempt by the state & central government to prevent these suicides. While many suggest and believe that eliminating corporate education, reinstalling efficient public education is the solution. The political parties funded by these corporate private institutions aren't leaning in to change anything.

Khaki: Poems on Pulwama
Thu Apr 25, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan & Prof Fatima Shahnaz
Khaki: Poems on Pulwama by Dr Fatima Shahnaz

Fatima Shahnaz's collection, "KHAKI - Poems on Pulwama" is an outpouring of the shock, outrage and emotional distress felt across India after the terrorist suicide attack on unarmed Indian forces at Pulwama, Kashmir, in which forty-four Indian soldiers were killed. These poems were written and completed within barely two weeks, from February 14, 2019 to March 3, 2019, following the assault, purportedly by a terrorist in Pakistan's proxy war on India. The range of these poems embodies the poet's academic career as an author and an advocate of international human rights who has been vocal for racial and social justice and as an anti-war activist promoting global peace in the New York area, where she lived after growing up in Europe. She has also proactively condemned violence against women in speeches and activism in India since her return to her homeland.

The poems in KHAKI are unabashedly patriotic, reflecting Fatima's yearning for her homeland throughout her life. While the poetry additionally reflects her humanitarian mission as she continues to uphold her ideals of global justice and peace, she is also aware of the compelling urgency for the preservation of the Indian democracy, the largest in the world, and the pluralism and secular ideals at its core


About the Writer

Dr. Fatima Shahnaz’s first novel, GOLCONDA, was published in New York by
News-India (Times); Khaki, Poems on Pulwama follows several collections of her
poetry include Sarasavati, Shards and others; an introduction and poem by her were
selected for an anthology, “In the Arms of Words,” published by Sherman Asher
Publishers in the United States, and the proceeds from this supported relief for victims
of the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. She was appointed the first Indian, and
Asian, Head Girl in the British girl’s boarding school she attended in Europe; after

achieving General School Certificates, Ordinary and Advanced levels (Oxford-
Cambridge Boards), she obtained her B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in French Literature at the

Sorbonne University in Paris, France. She was awarded a citation by the Government
of France in 2010 as “Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” (‘Knight of the
Order of Arts and Letters’). Before her teens she won the Jawaharlal Nehru Gold
Medal for writing, and several first prizes from the Shankar’s institution in India. She
has written extensively as a journalist and academic on global politics has been a

Qutb Shahi Tombs Restoration
Fri Apr 26, 7:30 PM

Qutb Shahi Tombs: Heritage Restoration by Ratish Nanda, CEO, Aga Khan Trust for Culture

Heritage restoration is often a topic of heartbreak in Hyderabad. However, if there has been any visible change on that front, it is at the Qutb Shahi tombs, the royal necropolis where the Golconda kings and founders of Hyderabad were laid to rest. The ongoing work in the complex has been a much-needed respite from the usual apathy that Hyderabadis witness with regard to the city’s heritage.

Undertaken by the Telangana department of Archaeology and Museums and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) some years ago, the work at the Qutb Shahi tombs has brought about visible (and much needed) change and stability to the heritage monuments, some of which were in a precarious situation. Using archival imagines and artisans who were specifically brought to Hyderabad for this work, the structures have been revived by expert conservation architects. So how did they undertake this monumental task?

To understand that, and to throw light on the extensive work that has been taken up, we bring to you talk by the very person in charge of it all – Ratish Nanda, the CEO of the AKTC. Nanda, who has been with the AKTC for two decades, is also the man behind the restoration of (Mughal emperor) Babur’s tomb in Afghanistan. The AKTC has also taken up other major restoration works in the country like the Humayun’s tomb and the Sunder nursery in New Delhi.

Siyasi Muslims
A Story of Political Islams in India
Overview :- How do we make sense of the Muslims of India?
Do they form a political community?
Does the imagined conflict between Islam and modernity affect the Muslims' political behaviour in this country?
Are Muslim religious institutions-mosques and madrasas-directly involved in politics?
Do they instruct the community to vote strategically in all elections?
What are 'Muslim issues'?
Is it only about triple talaq?
Are Muslims truly nationalists? Or do they continue to remain just an 'other' in India?
While these questions intrigue us, we seldom debate to find pragmatic answers to these queries. Examining the everydayness of Muslims in contemporary India, Hilal Ahmed offers an evocative story of politics and Islam in India, which goes beyond the given narratives of Muslim victimhood and Islamic separation.

Hilal Ahmed is Associate Professor and works on political Islam, Muslim modernities/ representation, and politics of symbols in South Asia. His book Muslim Political Discourse in Postcolonial India: Monuments, Memory, Contestation (Routledge 2014), looks at these thematic concerns to make sense of the nature of contemporary Muslim political discourse.

MOVIE SCREENING-PATHER PANCHALI
Tue May 7, 7:30 PM
HYDERABAD CINEPHILES
Movie Screening - Pather Panchali by Satyajit Ray

Pather Panchali is Ray's debut film, and the first film of his 'The Apu Triology'

The time is early twentieth century, a remote village in Bengal.The film deals with a Brahmin family, a priest - Harihar, his wife Sarbajaya, daughter Durga, and his aged cousin Indir Thakrun - struggling to make both ends meet.

Pather Panchali has a universal humanist appeal. Though the film deals with the grim struggle for survival by a poor family, it has no trace melodrama. What is projected in stead is the respect for human dignity.

The sequences of Apu and elder sister Durga, exploring their little world and sharing secrets are most remarkable aspect of the film. These include the scenes of - discovery of train by Durga and Apu in field of white Kash flowers, the candy seller sequence, and Indir Thakrun's death.

The film develops its characters and the atmosphere slowly and resolutely. The narrative builds up to a powerful climax as we begin to empathise with the characters.

MOVIE SCREENING-AGANTUK
Thu May 9, 7:30 PM
HYDERABAD CINEPHILES
Agantuk (the stranger) is the last film by Satyajit Ray. Like most of Rays films, Agantuk has as well the reputation to be non-cinematic.We are introduced to the characters of the film like we are introduced to a bengali middle class family. Subindhra Bose, his wife Anila and their small boy Satyaki are surprised by a letter addressed to Anila. It comes from a person called Manmohan Mitra who is Anilas uncle and only living relative but her childhood memory in him is very blurred. He announces his visit to the family of Bose.Subindhra is skeptical, because he thinks this uncle could be as well an imposter intending to get his hands on Anilas inheritance. Anila expresses slight reservations against her uncle but her face reflects already affection for this humorous and intelligent man. But The heart of their son has already been won unconditionally by Mitra.Very early the film offers three possibilities to look at this strange uncle: the skepticism of Subhindra, this pending between longing and affection of Anila and finally the unprejudiced attitude of the boy. Amidst all these perceptions, the film slowly moves "closer to the truth"

Topi Ki Dastaan
Sat May 11, 7:30 PM
Wings Cultural Society

Topi Ki Daastan is based on a famous and popular Hindi novel Topi Shukla, written in the early sixties by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. It has been adapted by Wings Cultural Society in the ‘Dastaan Narration Form’. Through storytelling we have tried to recreate the turbulence between ‘ Topi’ and ‘Iffan’, the main characters, they are childhood friends who have grown up in an independent cultural environment before the great divide that was the result of the creation of the two nations. The entire scenario is created through dialogues in the truest format. This “Dastaan” is an attempt to reinvent those feelings of fear and horror between the two main communities which were affected.
It revolves around TOPI who is an embodiment of chaos in the post independent era. The “Dastaan” highlights the circumstances of two nations existing within the one nation. Topi a Hindu by faith questions the formation of Pakistan and is a mirror image of the mindset of his times,which also becomes a reflection of the present day scenario.
