Change the narrative around Rape
Sat Dec 14, 2:00 PM
Swathi
What do we usually talk when we talk about rape? More security. More surveillance. IFs and Buts on where the girl should be, shouldn't be, where she is and with whom, what she's wearing, more laws and rules to bring instant justice and so on.

We want to bring the focus to a different narrative, that lies beneath these outcomes and tries to explore deep rooted attitudes and systems that perpetuate violence against women.

With this approach, we believe that preventing rape is the best form of justice to victims of rape.

TM POTLE
Thu Dec 19, 8:00 PM
Amaan Ahmad (The Unknown Pen)
TM POTLE stands for The Missing Pieces of Your Tiny Little Egos. The play revolves around a theatre actor who is frustrated about her director being very strict. In this monologue, Simran Kaur, who is playing the lead, will have various shifts of emotions. She is struggling with the dialogues that her director has thrown at her, which are entirely absurd. She is constantly dealing with her inner turmoil. As the play progresses, we see that Simran is losing her mind. She sits and a sudden shift into the inner mind would reveal that she is not only the actor but also the director who has issues with her other-self. The play has explicit content (profanity).

Phad painting workshop
Sat Dec 21, 11:00 AM
Heart for Art trust
Heart for art trust us coming up with a workshop of a traditional art form known as Phad Art Painting workshop by Master artisan Vivek Joshi and Vijay Joshi.
About PHAD ART
One of the most ancient arts of India, Phad
paintings of the Bhilwara/Shahpura region of
Rajasthan can be traced back to more than 700
years. Phad means ‘to read’ and these paintings
are based on songs of legendary Pabuji and
Devnarayan that are sung by Bhopa singers. The
art known not only for its vibrant colours, but also
the fact that it is accompanied by an oral tradition
of rendering gatha (folklore). Hand-woven cloth is
soaked overnight so that the threads get thicker. It
is then starched, burnished for a smooth and
shiny surface and then the Phad painter draws
the entire narrative on this canvas. The figures
are rounded, wear traditional attire and headgear
and bright colours are used to fill them in. The
colours are painstakingly extracted from natural
sources—stones, flowers, herbs.
About the artist
VIJAY JOSHI & VIVEK JOSHI
Vijay & Vivek Joshi, brother duo, are traditional
Phad artists from Shahpura (Bhilwara district) of
Rajasthan. Vijay Joshi is a National Merit Award–
winning artist and member of Virasat: Nonpareil
Shahpura's Phad Painting Training and Research
Institute. The Joshi brother took training in the

'Mudda Ghatak Hai'
Sun Dec 22, 7:00 PM
Nishtha Pandey
Our society has a set of ideas about how we expect men and women to dress, behave, and present themselves. About how we define 'love'. About how we ask everyone to fit into tight compartments of stereotypes. Now it's high time to ask WHY? The street play titled 'Mudda Ghatak Hai' asks these very critical questions. Directed, written and performed by the students of street play team 'Bedari'. This play intices the inequalities that have been present among different genders in the Indian society, since the very beginning of time, with fitting references to Indian mythology, Bollywood songs or the so-called 'hit numbers' to the references to our everyday news of tragic events with respect to the same. This play includes symbolic representation of concerns such as discrimination against LGBTQ+ community, toxic masculinity and female infanticide shedding light upon the humiliating practices of slut-shaming, the killing of a girl child and corrective rape. It ultimately reflects the functioning of the society forever since, reiterating the idea of dharma or justice from the Indian mythology that we preach. All we want to convey is that 'Stereotypes Don't Define Us' and now it's high time that the society accepts this because Mudda Bahut Ghatak Hai!!

Cricket Country - Book Launch
Tue Dec 24, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan An Open Cultural Space
On the morning of 6 May 1911, a large crowd gathered at Bombay’s Ballard Pier. They were
there to bid farewell to a motley group of sixteen Indian men who were about to undertake a
historic voyage to London. The persons whom the crowd cheered that sultry Saturday morning
were members of the first All-India cricket team.
Conceived by an unlikely coalition of imperial and Indian elites, it took twelve years and three
failed attempts before an ‘Indian’ cricket team made its debut on the playing fields of imperial
Britain in the blazing coronation summer of 1911.
This is a capacious tale with an improbable cast of characters set against the backdrop of
revolutionary protest and princely intrigue. The captain of the Indian team was nineteen-year old
Bhupinder Singh, the embattled Maharaja of Patiala. The other cricketers were selected on the
basis of their religious identity. Most remarkable, for the day, was the presence in the side of two
Dalits: the Palwankar brothers, Baloo and Shivram.
Drawing on an unparalleled range of original archival sources, Cricket Country is the untold story
of how the idea of India was fashioned on the cricket pitch in the high noon of empire.


Rammanohar Reddy is currently Editor of “The India Forum”, a digital publication on contemporary issues that was launched in March 2019.
He holds a PhD in Economics and has been in economics journalism since 1989, the longest period in “The Hindu” and then the “Economic and Political Weekly”.
He was a passionate follower of cricket for 3 decades but now, because there is too much of it and too many varieties that he can’t make sense of he sticks to reading about its history.

Badlav
Thu Dec 26, 8:00 PM
Amaan Ahmad (The Unknown Pen)
Badlav is an original Hindi play written and directed by Amaan Ahmad. Badlav revolves around Gayatri, Kalpana, Radha, and Bindya. Gayatri wants change but her hypocrisy surfaces all the time. Meanwhile, Kalpana, a carefree girl always brings nihilistic values of life. Radha is air-headed and her naivety mixes with intuition and she is lost in her absurd thoughts most of the time. The play takes various twists and turns and touches the element of the Theatre of Absurdity. This psychological and absurd play has multiple rises and falls.
