Lamakaan-an open cultural space has been organising variety of events for its audiences. Post lockdown, Lamakaan has decided to do some online events as well.
In coming days, we have planned a series of panel discussions pertaining to the Covid19 pandemic. The first of the series of panel discussion that we are planning to organise online will be held on 2nd of May at 8:30 PM. The topic of this panel discussion will be ” Kerala : Fight with Corona pandemic ”
Kerala was one of the early hubs of India’s Covid19 crisis. As far back in Feb, Kerala Minister for Health ordered screening at all four of the States airports and a few days later the Chief Minister announced a lockdown — one that was seemingly more effective than the national lockdown – in some part because it was more humane. How did Kerala fund the capacity to respond to an emergent pandemic even before the WHO had declared it as one. What marks the states health infrastructure that allowed for such agility? What about the interface between government, medical teams and citizens which allowed for such a response.
These and other important questions will be taken up by three doctors / scientists speaking in this panel. This online panel discussion will be co hosted by Lamakaan, Hyderabad and ICW, USA.
This panel discussion will be relayed through Google conference link. This event is for Hyderabad, National and International audience.
I would request you to join us on this panel discussion. After the discussion, speakers will take a few questions as well.
The four esteemed speakers for this event on 2nd May 2020 at 8:30PM are as follows :
Ekbal B, He chairs the epidemic response committee, and past president of the KSSP
Dr. Antony Kollannur Former Director, State Health Resource Centre, Chhattisgarh
Dr.Jayakrishnan, Prof of Community Medicine in Kozhikode Medical Collage.

Remembering Ambedkar: It has been sixty four years since Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar’s demise. Considering our current socio-political society, where discrimination against marginalized groups is rampant, it becomes even more important to understand and grasp Ambedkar’s ideas of equality and justice: the two values through which Ambedkar viewed democracy. Taking that into consideration, Lamakaan invites everybody to a zoom conversation with three experts who will deliver their respective discourses on Ambedkar and the current climate in the country. The speakers are as follows: 1. Aishwary Kumar: Dr. Aishwary Kumar is a professor at University of California and an intellectual historian of the Global South. His work engages a wide spectrum of issues in moral and political philosophy, history of political thought and inequality, political freedom and justice, and global lineages of self-determination, citizenship, and rights.
Professor Kumar will be speaking on the notion of segregation/quarantine and how Ambedkar employs them in his arguments on democratic crises.
Ms. Siddharth will be speaking on Ambedkar’s views on inter-caste marriages.
The zoom conversation will take place on the 14th of April from 5 pm to 7:30 pm.
Author Devika is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Topic: Understanding Ambedkar in the times of Corona Time: Apr 14, 2020 05:00 PM India

Wait, what is a zine? Zines are a DIY form of self-publishing that we hope to explore further with you this Tuesday!
Who are we? Devashree Somani and Riya Behl are recent graduates of Ashoka University, currently engaging in the development sector. We will be speaking Hindi and English during this workshop.
What will we be doing? As young people, who are on the journey of finding our voices in a country struggling to uphold the values of a democracy, we would like to democratize the process of making art with you. The focus of this workshop will be ‘Hope in struggle’. We will go over the history and technique of making zines following which, participants will start working on individual zines.
At the end of the workshop, we will make photocopies for each other to swap – in original zine-style that removed money from the exchange of ideas – and hopefully, keep sharing through this form.
Participants are required to: – Think of a concept or narrative for the Zine – Carry A3/A4 paper(s) that will be your canvas. We encourage re-using paper, so it could be any old paper with one side blank. Please remember to bring photographs, news clippings, anything you might want in your Zine. – Carry any other stationery like scissors, glue, stickers etc., that you wish to use. – If you have made zines before or have them at home, bring them along too. It will confirm for first-timers that what you can include in a zine is only limited by your imagination! – Carry yourselves, and on time!
See you soon!
Devashree Somani and Riya Behl are recent graduates of Ashoka University, currently engaging in the development sector. Riya folds anything that can be folded into a zine. She has been lucky to be a part of zine-making workshops with other crafty, curious zinesters in Delhi, Chennai, and Mumbai; she is eager to create in Hyderabad too! Devashree is a long-time fan and beginner level zine-maker. She is excited to share a space of solidarity and creativity.
