Cowspiracy:Documentary Screening
Sat Apr 21, 11:30 AM
Dr. Arun Rangasamy
About the Documentary and the Event:
The documentary ‘Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret’ complements mainstream Climate-Change awareness efforts that almost singularly focus on energy and transportation. This 85 minute documentary addresses the question ’Does food matter?’, and seeks to find the impact of our food choices on climate change, deforestation, resource consumption, pollution, bio-diversity and sustainability.

With extreme events (eg. prolonged dry-spells and highly intense rains in a short time) becoming relatively more frequent, this movie will empower caring individuals with valuable information to make wise, informed choices that help contain climate change.

This event is a part of Earth Day (22 Apr) awareness programs.

2:Maut – Have you wished for something with all your heart but never got. Have you always believed in something and you were sure that you would achieve it and it never worked out the way you intended. Well the same happens here with ‘A Man’ who wants everything but the outcome is different in a funny turn of events.

Increasing Acquittal in NDA Govt
Tue Apr 24, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
The recent judgements in Mecca Masjid bomb blast (2007), Malegaon (2006), Ajmer (2007), Samjhuata Express (2007) blasts have given clean chit and acquittal to the accused. This has become a disturbing pattern of the courts including NIA to declare accused acquitted. Where is the justice to the tens and hundreds of people who died and several critically injured in the bomb blasts? What about those who were falsely implicated immediately after the blast? They are not re-inducted back in the society. We have also seen cases are dropped against the accused in the communal riots in many states. What does it indicate to the victims, who are continuously suffering due to denial of justice?

We invite you to join us for a discussion with our expert panel on this increasing acquittal trend.

Panellists:
1. Raghunath, Senior High Court Lawyer, Hyderabad
2. Prof Fatima Shahnaaz, Emeritus Professor of Political Science, Author and Social Activist.
3. Lateef Mohammed Khan, Social Activist.

ALL ARE WELCOME!!!

"TIN TAPPAR" A Play in Hindi

Written by Nag Bodas
Directed by Sandep Sahu

A Samahaara Workshop Production

Entry by Donation Rs.100/-

Date - 26th April 2018, Thursday
Time - 8.00pm
Venue - Lamakaan, Banjara Hills, Hyd.


About the Play:

It's been 70 years since we have attained Independence but still a majority of the population does not even have a house to live in. Some have even seen the dream of owning a house and died with those unfulfilled dreams.



Tin Tappar is a depiction of the problems faced by the labour class in India. The poor keep dreaming of having a pucca house, but those dreams are crashed by the builders and corrupt real estate agents. Instead, they have to live in slum areas which is covered with a tin roof. Few of them migrate to towns and cities in search of work and improve their standard of living while others become a victim of the political propaganda and accept their situation happily. The builders don’t even spare these areas and demolish the tin sheds in order to build multi storey apartments and malls.

"KYILKHOR"
Sun Apr 29, 10:30 AM
MAITHILI S
"KYILKHOR" is Tibetan for mandala means 'that which encircles a center'.“Center” here, what it means is “a meaning,” and that which encircles it is a symbol, or a representation of the meaning. Mandalas represent wholeness, unity and harmony.Most importantly, your mandala needs to be soulful.You may bring vegetables & fruits of all colors to make mandalas or draw and paint on a sheet of paper the choice is yours. Just make sure you have fun with it. If the food mandala is bigger than 4 Sq.Ft and a very intricate design then more than one person can work on it, but please make sure you have friends around to share it with or you can always donate the food to a old age home or a home for the needy.

Shah Latif Sufi Musical Night
Wed May 2, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team and Vipul Rikhi
Rooh ji Rehaan | A Gathering of Souls
Stories, Poetry and Songs from the world of Shah Latif


Those who set out with nothing
Experience union
Those who bedeck themselves
Remain forsaken

- Shah Latif

Explore the poetry of the great 18th century Sindhi Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, through storytelling, translations and songs. Vipul Rikhi shares these stories along with interpretations of their deep significance for Latif. There will be translations of the poetry in English and, most importantly, songs of Latif in the kaafi form, which are part of the folk oral traditions of Kutch, Gujarat.


Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai was a great 18th century Sufi poet who, without exaggeration, can be called the Voice of Sindh. His poetry draws on the power and beauty of Sufi as well as Yogic thought, melding the two philosophies into one poetic and spiritual vision. His major work is the “Shah Jo Risalo” and his poems thrive today as a vibrant oral tradition being widely sung, quoted and loved by both Hindu and Muslim communities in the Sindh and Kutch regions on both sides of the Indo-Pak border.


In a world where women voices were unheard of, Latif took popular love legends of the region and spoke through the voices of different women protagonists, to weave a web of poetry that plays tantalizingly between the levels of ishq-e-majaazi, worldly love, and ishq-e-haqeeqi, spiritual love.


Examples:

https://sayskabir.wordpress.co m/2016/10/19/shartiyun-aain-ta /

The duration of the program will be around 90 minutes.

Vipul Rikhi is a poet, fiction writer, translator and singer, and a co-creator of the web archive 'Ajab Shahar'. His work with Kabir Project includes extensive writings and translations in the field of Bhakti, Sufi and Baul poetry. In the course of these journeys he has developed a deep love for singing mystic poetry in the folk music traditions. In his performances, he likes to bring equal emphasis to the poetry and its resonances in our lives as to the sheer beauty of many of the folk tunes. He is also the author of a novel and collections of poetry and short stories.

EK Soirachari Rajar Katha
Thu May 3, 8:00 PM
Shudrka Hyderabad
The play, “Ek Soirachari Rajar Katha” (The Story of a Despot) has drawn from Camus' “Caligula” the concept of deification of emperors which was common to the pagan world, the Greek and Macedonian kings. Raja (the king) discovers on the death of his sister and lover, Aparupa, that people die and they are not happy. From this point on, obsessed by his search for the absolute, poisoned with contempt and horror, he tries to exercise, through murders and systematic perversion of all values. He rejects friendship, love, simple human solidarity, and the concepts of good and evil. He takes literally all those around him like Taruni, his poet-friend, and forces them to see things logically, and levels everything around him through the force of his rejection. But if his truth involves revolting against destiny, his mistake is to deny humanity. One cannot destroy everything without destroying one's self. This is why Raja depopulates the world around him and, faithful to his own logic, decides to strangle Kamini, his mistress, uttering his gospel of hate at everything around him. This play is the story of a superior suicide, as described by Camus. It is the most human of stories and the most tragic of errors. Faithless to humanity out of faith in himself, he accepts to die for having understood that no one can save himself by himself, and that one cannot be free while opposing humanity. The play remains universally relevant. It represents the face of contemporary despotism, not only in terms of the whimsical madness of rulers, but also in terms of how people react to such rule with a glimmer of hope for the future.

Remembering Tagore
Tue May 8, 7:30 PM
Sanghamitra Malik and Lamakaan Programming Team
On the occasion of 157th Birthday celebrations of Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore, Sanghamitra Malik and Lamakaan bring an evening of Rabindra Sangeet and Poetry.

' Tagore was the foremost lyricist of his language, Bangla and the most celebrated composer of his music. He had composed the tunes for all the songs he wrote except one. He has written near about 2300 songs which are an integral part of the Bengali culture and collective psyche.
Tagore's songs are primarily divided into six different categories and come under the following headings:- Puja meaning Reverence, Prem meaning Love for one and all, Prakriti meaning the Six Indian Seasons, Swadeshi meaning Patriotic, Nritya Naatak meaning Dance Drama and Vichitra(Anushthanik) meaning Ceremonial.
A few songs under different categories will be presented. They will be in Bangla and also in Hindi for those who do not follow Bangla. There will be a song in English as well as English translations presented, of a couple of songs. These would enable the non-Bengali listeners to enjoy the beauty of Tagore's melodies.
The songs will be interspersed with some lesser known facts about the great poet.'
