Revisiting Paris Commune
Tue Mar 19, 7:30 PM
Hyderabad Marxist Study Circle
"On the dawn of March 18, Paris arose to the thunder-burst of “Vive la Commune!” ... The Commune, they exclaim, intends to abolish property, the basis of all civilization! Yes, gentlemen, the Commune intended to abolish that class property which makes the labor of the many the wealth of the few. It aimed at the expropriation of the expropriators. It wanted to make individual property a truth by transforming the means of production, land, and capital, now chiefly the means of enslaving and exploiting labor, into mere instruments of free and associated labor." - writes Marx.

Paris Commune, the first workers' revolution of the history was short lived - thanks to the ruthless bloodbath by the capitalist ruling classes - but even in its short span of 72 days it showed what the working class, when organized as the ruling class, could achieve. Marx drew some very important conclusions, especially regarding the question of state - as highlighted multiple times by Lenin in his book State and Revolution. Even today, this unprecedented event acts as a guide and morale booster for the revolutionaries everywhere, while incessantly haunting the ruling classes and rightly so!

March 18 this year marks the 138th anniversary of the Commune. Hyderabad Marxist Study Circle invites you to participate in a talk-cum-discussion event at 7:00 PM, March 19 in Lamakaan.

Remembering Nataraja Ramakrishna

Lamakaan invites you all on the occasion of 96th Birth Anniversary of Padmashree Nataraja Ramakrishna who was on 21st March 1923 in Indonesia.

About Nataraja Ramakrishna:

Padmashree Nataraja Ramakrishna (21 March 1923 – 7 June 2011) was a dance guru from Telangana, India. He was the chairman of Andhra Pradesh Sangeeta Nataka Academy. He was also a scholar and musicologist who promoted classical dance in Andhra Pradesh and worldwide. Nataraja Ramakrishna's contributions to dances of South Indian traditions are great. He revived the dance traditions of Devadasis of Andhra Pradesh and named them Andhra Natyam. He decoded the 13th-century sculptures of Ramappa temple with the help of Jayapa Senani's Nrittya Ratnavalli and reconstructed the dance that went extinct for almost eight centuries. A lesser known fact about Nataraja Ramakrishna is that he put up the case of granting Classical status to Kuchipudi which otherwise was listed as a folk dance. He has immensely contributed to Perani dance form and nurtured it to the core.

Speakers:
Dr. Anuradha Jonnalagadda, Associate Professor at the Dept of Dance, University of Hyderabad. She is also a Kuchipudi Dance Exponent and direct student of Guruji.

Shree Kala Krishna, a direct disciple of Guruji will also be there.

ALL ARE WELCOME. ENTRY IS FREE & OPEN TO ALL!!!

The Wire Dialogues — Media and Social Media in an Age of Intolerance

Individuals -- and particularly women - who believe in a secular, democratic and inclusive India and express it through their work and social media posts often fund themselves being targeted, harassed, shamed and cornered on social media. Not only does this result in a narrowing of already shrinking public spaces for women with ‘unpopular’ views but it also forces their invisibilisation. The problem is compounded by a major section of the mainstream media also adopting a stridently intolerant position on many issues. What can we do to rescue the possibility of debate and diversity in the media and social media? Is there any role for the law or of official guidelines? Or are those a double-edged sword?

Panelists:- Arfa Khanum Sherwani, Faizan Mustafa, Swati Vadlamdui, Nitya Ramakrishnan and Rohini Singh — In Conversation with Chandana Chakrabarti.

Join our panel for a discussion on this crucial topic of our times, open for all.

"KUNDETI KOMMU"
A hilarious play in Telugu

Directed by Rathna Shekar

Date - 23rd & 24th March 2019
Time - 7.30pm
Venue - Lamakaan, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.

The play revolves around a conflict between two villages Pedduru and Chinnuru which were once one. Owing to differences, two brothers Pedda Dora and Chinna Dora separate, which not only creates the division of this village but also plants seeds of vengeance in the hearts of these people. While a wanderer conversing with an educated urbanite, suddenly collapses exactly on the boundary line of the two villages. This triggers a conflict between the two villages on who shall take up the responsibility to perform the last rites of the dead person.

Adi & Appa who happen to be ardent followers of Pedda Dora and Chinna Dora, continuously engage in verbal arguments supporting the voice of their respective leaders. Saraiah, a solo drunkard who doesn’t identify with either of the villages fuels the argument frequently. Likewise after a series of arguments, the brothers suddenly discover the monetary benefits of cremation through a letter in the wanderers bag. Intoxicated by greed Pedda Dora, Chinna Dora and their corresponding associates begin to compete in showering pretentious respect towards the dead body. A new conflict arises where both the brothers desperately offer to take up the entire responsibility of performing the last rites. After witnessing this chameleonic behaviour of the villagers, the Urbanite discloses that no penny will be received by either of the doras.

How will they react to this new situation, who will get the money ? Lets find out.

The contemporary world is loaded with technology from the moment we wake up, to the moment we close our eyes, staring at the screen on the bed. Technology has turned from a luxury into a necessity in our lives. Thus to spread awareness, we are organizing a talk on the present day's state-of-the-art technology and its effect on us.

The talk intends to trigger a thought process and discussion on the current state of technology. We would glance through different issues that are coming up ahead of us with the fast-paced technology, namely attention economy, tech addictions, digital privacy, digital laws, and liberties. The talk will dig deep into the psychological factors that are involved when we use social media and which in a way keep us coming back to the social media and get us hooked.
