Book Launch- A Useful Death
Thu Jul 25, 7:00 PM
Westland Publications

About the Book
Aspiring actress Priya is dead. It’s a suicide, and rumour has it that Anil, son of politician and former Telugu-movie superstar Mohan Krishna, drove her to it. Just another film-industry scandal? Or something bigger, much bigger?

Partha, hired by Mohan Krishna’s family to handle the crisis, thinks so. Why won’t such a powerful father defend his son, Partha wonders. Is there an intra-family war? Whose interests are playing out in the media and on social media? Is a political game afoot or is this all connected to Mohan Krishna’s own dubious past? And why are student unions getting involved?

Even as Partha and his associates, Seema and Harish, confront the ethics of being involved in a war with no heroes, they are drawn into a dangerous hunt. They must negotiate a tangled and vicious world to answer one question: a young woman is dead—to whom is her death useful?

Write Club Saturday General #211
Sat Jul 27, 3:00 PM
Write Club Hyderabad
Write Club Hyderabad helps you pen your thoughts, spill your mind and finally make an appointment with the writer in your head. We conduct free, weekly events that foster writing. Our Meetups aim at helping writers reach their goals in a supportive, collaborative, social setting. Writing doesn't have to be all by oneself. We welcome anyone who writes, regardless of genre, language or age. We have members writing novels, short stories, poetry, screenplays, essays, school reports and more. What we do, basically: One of the members of Write Club (anyone with a participation count over 2 consecutive meetups) hosts a session. They bring forth a theme and writing exercises. We all then write to the host’s prompts and guidelines for about an hour. Once we're done writing, we read out our write-ups (optional). We also exchange feedback and constructively critique each other's works. Entry is free, anyone with an interest in writing can walk in. Bring your writing devices and we’re all set! We promise to provide you with good coffee and a super-creative conversation. We have Write Club sessions every Saturday afternoon – 3 to 6 PM

World drag day event
Sun Jul 28, 3:00 PM
Patruni Chidananda Sastry
Drag queens are performance artists, almost always male, who dress in women's clothing and often act with exaggerated femininity and in feminine gender roles with a primarily entertaining purpose. They often exaggerate make-up such as eyelashes for dramatic, comedic or satirical effect. Drag queens are closely associated with gay men and gay culture, but can be of any sexual orientation or gender identity. They vary widely by class, culture, and dedication, from professionals who star in films to people who try drag very occasionally.

The activity, which is called doing drag, has many motivations, from individual self-expression to mainstream performance. Drag queen activities among stage and street performers may include lip-syncing, live singing, dancing, roasting etc.

Self Care & the Collective: Talk

Tashi Choedup
Why does a person come into queer space? And how can we make space for all the reasons why they may be there? What is often our first response and immediate priority when a person comes.  How may we take care of one another with responsibility? How do we learn to say  'we are here for you'?  

Ponni Arasu is a queer feminist activist. She has been part of queer collectives and advocacy groups such as Nigah, Anjuman and Voices Against 377. In her capacity as a legal practitioner and researcher at the Alternative Law Forum in Bangalore, she worked with the LesBit collective. She is also a historian of public politics in Tamilnadu.

Siyaah Haashiye
Fri Aug 16, 8:00 PM
Sutradhar
ABOUT SIYAAH HAASHIYE
First published in 1947 (the year that India was divided), Siyaah Haashiye is a collection of 32 cameos written by Sa’adat Hasan Manto, often referred to as ‘the original enfant terrible of Urdu literature’. A man who had little regard for the societal or literary norms of any time, Manto tried to capture the truth of humanity and its downfall as he saw it.
Siyaah Haashiye literally means ‘black borders’. Siyaah Haashiye are vignettes of the partition of India; written with the same dark blood that oozed from both sides on a land that was ripped to pieces and has never quite managed to pull itself together yet. More than 60 years have passed; 55 since Manto himself was laid to rest but the bloodstains of that massacre still haunt the generations on both sides of the divide: dates have changed; places have changed and so have names but the nature of man remains the same; the struggle against our own self continues.
A medley of 32 short and very short stories based on the events that took place during partition. The stories illustrate the heinous and mercenary stupidity to which human beings can stoop when they get a chance. The shortness of the stories creates the impression that we are entering a war zone.
Presented partly in narrative and partly as a combination of narrative and performance, Siyaah Haashiye transports us to the morbid world of loot, killing and rape being committed in the name of religion.

Kabaddi: The Game of Partition
Fri Aug 23, 8:00 PM
The Cutting Chai Company
Kabaddi, the Game of Partition is a period drama of the bloodiest time in Indian history. This play is a testament of the mass that was made to participate in one of the biggest political gambles ever. Sure; nations were divided, treaties were signed, tanks were loaded, and armies were deported. But what the people went through, is what has carried the legacy due. We have all read enough about Gandhi, Nehru, Jinnah, the commission, India and Pakistan; it is now time to relieve the madness as citizens of the country. The essence of the play thrives on just one question, did the independence really set us free?
