Dear Future Children
Thu Apr 25, 7:00 PM
Goethe - Zentrum Hyderabad & Lamakaan
Dear Future Children tells of the challenges faced by activists of different international movements. The film aims to uncover their motivations and, among other things, also looks at how the organizational forms of the protests evolve.
Dear Future Children focuses on the political work of three activists whose struggles are often associated with enormous personal risk. In Chile, Rayen protests for social justice; in Hong Kong, Pepper is committed to the survival of democracy; and in Uganda, Hilda is dedicated to working against the devastating consequences of climate change. The three narrative threads are linked by the shared irrepressible will of the young activists and their comrades-in-arms not to be defeated by the existing system and to fight for a better world. The events in the respective locations and the people involved are captured up close and intimately by the camera and director Franz Böhm – both on location during protests and public events and in very personal conversations.

ALL ARE INVITED!

Peaceful Expansion of Islam
Fri Apr 26, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan & Danish Majid
Just about a year and a half after the release of his previous book, “The Forgotten Muslim Empires of South India,” Ubaid-ur-Rahman returns to Hyderabad for the launch of his latest offering, “Peaceful Expansion of Islam in India.” The author will be in conversation with Cultural Curator and Sufi Trails Founder Haseeb Jafferi at 7 pm on Friday, April 26, 2024.

Join us at Lamakaan for an exciting, pertinent conversation that seeks to debunk many narratives prevalent over traditional, new, and social media about the spread of Islam in India.

About the book:
Syed Ubaidur Rahman’s book Peaceful Expansion of Islam in India is exhaustive, detailed, and carefully researched. It speaks of the significant role played by Arab traders who were plying the region even before the advent of Islam and certainly before the first Islamic rulers came to India. The book emphasizes how Islam first reached the Malabar coast almost at a time when Prophet Muhammad was still alive and converted the King Cheraman Perumal who is also known to have made the hazardous journey to meet the Prophet in Mecca. As Rahman charts the gradual ‘peaceful’ expansion of Islam from Kerala, through Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Bengal and Kashmir, he emphasizes the role played by the Sufis who belonged either to the Chishtiyya or Suharwardiyya order. The important names that come up in this context are those of Baba Farid Ganj-i-Shakar of Pakpattan and Bahauddin Zakariya of Multan. The exalted spiritual nature of the Sufis played a crucial role in convincing those who were marginalized in Indian society about the equal treatment and dignity that would be afforded to them in Islam.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Or... it might even be the show’s opening!!! The problem is that they don’t have the script. The author hasn’t written it yet. They’re going to have to improvise…

Communal Harmony Film Festival
Thu Mar 1, 4:00 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
Communal Harmony Film Festival - 28th February to 2nd March 2018 16 years ago on the morning of 27th February 2002 Godhra train burning accident occurred in which 59 people were killed. This event triggered massive violence and pogrom against Muslims in Gujarat, killing 2000 people. Many believe, ‘Godhara train tragedy’ was a conspiracy to attack minorities and consolidate the Hindu vote bank in the state. There were several commissions constituted to investigate Godhra and post Godhra carnage. The reports submitted by the commissions identified several criminals but nothing has been done to book them and bring justice to the victims of the communal riots. Post Godhara many sporadic to regular communal riots have taken place from Muzaffarnagar to Kasgunj etc and they keep happening in the name of cow slaughter, anti nationalism, religion, love jihad etc. This film festival tries to find the reasons why people of the same country are ready to slit the throats of each other in the name of religion, caste. India is a land of multi cultural diversity and plurality where communities have been living and managed to survive the test of time. Why is it that we are not being able to co-exist with harmony and peace in the recent times? Have we become pawns in the hands of political parties who can trigger riots anytime to gain undue advantage? What is the way out to deal these day to day increasing riots in the country? Can we understand the game of these vested interested and do not fall prey their cheap discourses which only promote hate and vengeance against communities? The aim of the festival is to protect the secular fabric of India and to sensitize masses on the issues of peace and harmony and to wither away the communal agenda of some political parties. ENTRY TO THE FESTIVAL IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!!! Post screening of the films discussion will follow! 28th Febraury (Wednesday) - 6pm Film: Ram Ke Naam (In the name of God) (1992) Directed by Anand Patwardhan. Duration: 75 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles) Synopsis: The film explores the campaign waged by the Hindu-nationalist Vishva Hindu Parishad to build a Ram temple at the site of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, as well as the communal violence that it triggered. A couple of months after Ram ke Naam was released, VHP activists demolished the Babri Masjid in 1992, provoking further violence. The film earned Patwardhan a wide recognition, and received several national and international awards. 1st March (Thursday) - 4pm Film: Final Solution (2004) Directed by Rakesh Sharma. Duration: 210 min. Language: Gujrati, Hindi (English subtitles) Synopsis: Final Solution is a 2004 documentary film directed by Rakesh Sharma concerning the 2002 Gujarat pogrom in which both Hindu and Muslims are targeted in the state of Gujarat by political extremists. In order to rationalize their violence, Hindu extremists had made the claim that their actions were in fact a "spontaneous response" to the Godhra Train Burning incident on 27 February 2002. But as the film proceeds with victims continuing to come forward and share their experiences, a more unsettling possibility seems to emerge- that far from being a spontaneous expression of outrage, the anti-Muslim violence had been carefully coordinated and planned. An official estimate states that 254 Hindus and 790 Muslims were killed during the riots, with 223 more missing. The documentary consists mostly of interviews, with both Muslims and Hindus, of multiple generations, and both sexes, with different views regarding the causes, justifications and the actual events of the violence that occurred, as well as their prospects for the future. 1st March (Thursday) – 7.00pm Film: Kya Hua Iss Shehar Ko? (What Happened to This City?) (1986) Directed by Deepa Dhanraj. Duration: 95 min. Language: Dakhani, Telugu (English subtitles) Synopsis: A pioneering political work of contemporary relevance: Communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in 1984 forms the starting point for this film, whose complexity lends it immense political force. The film's historical perspective is provided by a thorough commentary, which gives the camera's particular presence the necessary depth and complexity. The mechanisms of political power struggles, the dynamics among those that hold power and the instrumentalisation of economic relations and urban poverty make for a striking analysis, uniquely anticipating the subsequent development of communalist conflicts and the politics of marginalization.

2nd March (Friday) – 4pm Film: Muzzafarnagar Baaqi Hai (2015) Directed by Nakul Singh Sawhney. Duration: 136 min. Language: Hindi (English subtitles) Synopsis: In September 2013, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of Western Uttar Pradesh, India, witnessed one of India's worst ever pogrom since Indian Independence. More than 100 people were killed and close to 80,000 people were displaced. In the past, the two districts have seen relative harmony between Muslims and Hindus. What happened this time? 'Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai...' (Muzaffarnagar eventually...) straddles between various socio-political-economic dynamics in the areas that have been affected by the violence. This documentary speaks to a cross-section of people. While looking at the immediate violence and it's repercussions, it takes a journey around the many facets of the massacre- the question of a woman's 'honour', which becomes the biggest rallying point to instigate people, the way communal polarisation was orchestrated, the merging of caste identity politics within the larger political fold and the breakdown of the once powerful farmers' union - Bhartiya Kissan Union 2nd March (Friday) – 7.00pm Film: Who Killed Gandhi (2015) Directed by Anand Ramayya. Duration: 50 min. Language: English Synopsis: Who Killed Gandhi? is an investigation into assassin Nathuram Vinayak Godse, his mentor Vinakay Damodar Savarkar, and the murder of a man considered by many to be a saint and the father of modern India, Mahatma Gandhi. The story of the characters involved and muliple attempts on Gandhi's life reveal the complexities behind it, which have been cloaked in mystery and are only now coming to light. Gandhi's radical vision of a non-violent, multicultural society was in direct opposition to that of his opponents, inevitably leading to his violent death. What emerges is an epic battle of clashing ideologies set in a formative era that would define the world we live in today.

‘Dawson City: Frozen Time'
Sun Mar 4, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan Programming Team
When you see home-movie footage from, say, the 1940s, the images look old, but the people in them appear, more or less, to inhabit the same universe that we do. But when you see documentary footage from the late 19th century, it has an entirely different, slightly spooky not-of-this-world quality. Is it because of the primitive scratchy images? The more archaic visual-recording technology? No, it’s because the people in the images lack even a hint of the awareness of image-making technology. They have no media in their souls, and that marks them as pre-modern spirits.

“Dawson City: Frozen Time” is a one-of-a-kind curio of a movie that captures, through a collage of photographs, silent documentary footage, and pre-talkie Hollywood film, the story of a Canadian mining town from the 1890s up through the early decades of the 20th century. But it’s really telling the story of the birth of the modern age, and the remarkable thing is that the movie acquires the quality of a time machine. You don’t just watch “Dawson City.” You step into it to and draw back a magical curtain on the past, entering a world of buried memory that’s the precursor to our own.

Israel: Farming Injustice
Tue Mar 6, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan
Farming Injustice - The impact of Israeli agro-tech in Telangana and Palestine.

Since the 90s Israeli corporations are involved in Telangana’s agriculture. Starting from the Kuppam project in the 90s to the so-called Centers of Excellence to be set up under the Indo-Israeli agricultural project and the recently announced trips for over 1000 agricultural state officials to Israel, ostensibly for training purposes, dozens of crores of public money fund Israeli projects in the state.

This dialogue with farmers from Palestine and Telangana wants to look at the impact of these state sponsored projects on farmers in the state and the Palestinian suffering from Israel’s agricultural policies, central to their dispossession and colonisation. It will relate experiences of struggle against Israel’s corporate takeover of agriculture in other regions of the world.

Digital Security Training
Thu Mar 8, 3:00 PM
Software Freedom Law Center, India
Participants will be trained in the following areas.

1. Browsing Anonymously with Tor;
2. Using Encrypted communications platforms like Signal;
3. Using Email encryption;
4. Secure password management;

This workshop will follow a hands-on approach. Participants should bring their laptops and mobile devices.

More about workshop:

In the times of Big Data and Internet of Things, digital security has become more significant than ever. Data-driven private giants are rapidly collecting and analyzing vast amounts of personal data belonging to individuals. Every electronic device and service today has the ability to monitor its users’ activities in excruciating detail, spawning an entire industry that treats data as money. As corporations come up with new and inventive ways to monetize personal data, civil liberties such as the right to privacy are often left by the wayside.

In addition, there have been instances where cyber-attacks have compromised highly sensitive personal information on a very large scale (such as the attack on Equifax that leaked social security numbers), proving that cyber-security is no longer a niche area. Increasing reliance on the Internet and smart devices is exposing people to more cyber-security threats, and the problem will only be compounded as technology permeates ever deeper into daily lives.

In this scenario, it is a cause for concern that most users remain unaware of the privacy and security risks that they face on a daily basis, or the nature and extent of damage that stands to be done in consequence.

This 'Digital Security Training’ Workshop is an effort towards raising awareness in this regard and help building digital security of attendees.

This Buduga Jangam community is the traditional narrators of stories from mythology, epics, and heroic tales of the region.

For earth’s sake: soil health is human health by Sultan Ahmed Ismail

The dynamic nature of a soil is due to the tremendous activity of micro and macro organisms supported by availability of organic matter. It is this life in the soil that lends its name to the soil as living soil. A vast number of organisms engineer a myriad of biochemical changes as the decay of organic matter takes place in the soil. Among the organisms, which contribute to soil health, the most important are the earthworms. Based on continuous research on earthworms made me write “earthworms are the pulse of the soil, healthier the pulse, healthier the soil”.

The soil is a living dynamic system whose functions are mediated by diverse living organisms which in agriculture requires proper management and conservation. Unfortunately, in today’s chemical agriculture, importance is shown on soil fertility and not on the holistic soil health which provides an integrated sustainable mechanism to the soil to sustain its “living” fabric of nature.
Prof. Sultan Ismail will talk about the myriad of soil organisms, earthworms are one of the most vital components of the soil biota in terms of soil formation and maintenance of soil structure and fertility.

About Sultan Ahmed Ismail: Sultan Ahmed Ismail is an Indian soil biologist and ecologist. His work has centred on techniques for recycling biodegradable waste into fertilizer using local varieties of earthworms, and on soil bioremediation.

Ismail received a D.Sc. in Zoology from the University of Madras in 2001 for his research on the role of earthworms in soil ecology and waste management. He is also the Managing Director of the Ecoscience Research Foundation.

Secular and Traditional Hindustani Music and Poetry by Prof Subendu Ghosh

Prof. Subendu Ghosh takes us on a musical journey through India’s secular traditions of Amir Khusro, Kabir, Tansen, Bulle Shah, Lalan Faqeer, Nazeer Akbarabadi, Tagore, Faiz, Ramprasad Bismil and others. Composed and sung by Subendu, this is a performance of sheer breadth of traditions covered in an evening.

This is a presentation to remind ourselves as we pass through a difficult period of communal tensions and violence, about India’s secular commitment. The people of India have lived in peace and harmony over the ages. Despite differences in religions, they have all contributed to build a very rich and composite culture, and this is beautifully reflected in our literature and music.
This programme is a musical journey through India’s traditions of secular poetry, in a historical order beginning from the 13th century to the present day. Most of the music is composed and sung by Dr. Subhendu Ghosh and is based on Hindustani ragas or other musical forms including the traditional folk songs. The narrative includes a number of historical personalities like Hazrat Amir Khusro, Kabir, Mian Taan Sen, Bulle Shah, Lalan Faqir, Nazeer Akbarabadi, Ramprasad Bismil, Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Rabindranath Tagore.
This is a small effort to highlight the poetic genius of our Indian poets and pay our tribute to those who dedicated their lives to a Secular India.

Prarambh - 3 short plays
Fri Mar 23, 8:00 PM
Kissago
A collection of 3 short plays

"Hawalalat" Written By Sarveshwar Dayal Saxena, Directed by Subhash GuptaHawalaat’, revolves around the story of three youth who have no place since nobody was ready to offer them the shelter and they thought it proper to have the same in a police lock-up. For this they approached a police cop as criminals. In the beginning the cop is not ready to believe in them and asks them to establish their credentials by demonstrating their expertise and past accomplishments in the word of crime. To avoid them, the cop agrees to take them to the lock-up (Hawalaat) after tying their eyes. On the way they talk about political, ideological and social aspects of life and try to explain to the policemen how, like them he is also a mere pawn in the larger system, but he is not convinced. Instead of taking them the police station, the cop keeps them moving at one cross satire on the exploitation of the youth by the people sitting at the helm of affairs. The cop symbolizes the politicians of this country who have been be fooling the youth since Independence. In a highly intellectual manner the playwright has tried to expose the exploitation of the most energetic age group of the country.

"Marnoprant" written by Surendera Verma, directed by Jay Jha revolves around a triangular love story. The playwright unfolds the whole episode after the death of a young lady whose husband and the lover meet for the first time. Their encounter reveals the minute intricacies of man-woman relations and frustrations of extra marital affairs. Both embarrass each other by revealing the intimate moments they shared with the young lady. The dramatic action becomes even more interesting when it is shown that the husband comes to know about the relation after the death of his wife.

"Banerjee Babu", Written by Avinash Matta, Directed by Jay Jha - Nobody loves him, nobody cares for him. They only remember him when they need him to do some work. He is lonely. All he needs is a hug. Will you give it to him?

Cast : Jay Jha, Abhijeet Deshpande, Shailja Chaturvedi, Harshit Maheshwari, Bob Christo, Yaseen Sarwat, Gnandeep Patlola, Rohit Chouhan

Bhagat Singh was born in Punjab, India (now Pakistan), on September 27, 1907, to a Sikh family deeply involved in political activities. He quit school at thirteen to devote his life to Indian independence. He became involved in several violent demonstrations of political defiance and was arrested several times. Singh was found guilty of killing a British police officer and hanged on March 23, 1931.

A talk series on "CASTE" DAY1
Tue Mar 27, 6:30 PM
IN DEFENSE OF REASON
Indian society continues to be characterized by the barbaric caste system even in 21st century. In times of fascism, caste question has emerged on the national agenda with a renewed emphasis as evident in the wake of some recent incidents such as the institutional murder of Rohith Vemula, Una episode and Bhima Koregaon violence. However, the nature of caste system in modern capitalist era is not the same as the one that prevailed in feudal medieval India or in pre-feudal ancient India. As against the widespread belief, caste system has not remained static throughout history. There have been both temporal and spatial variations. The caste structure in south India is not exactly same as that in north India. The relation between caste and class has also evolved over a period of time. These complexities need to be grasped in order to move towards annihilation of caste. Without having a concrete understanding of the origin, evolution and spatio-temporal variations of caste, no project of annihilation of caste can be devised. Also, it is important to have a critical look at the efforts made in the past towards the annihilation of caste including the anti-caste movements of Ayyankali, Phule, Periyar, Ambedkar and the communist movement. It is because of this reason that Lamakaan is conducting an extensive 3-day long talk series on “Caste: origin, evolution and proposed program for its annihilation”. The talk will be delivered by Abhinav Sinha who is a Marxist theorist and activist. Abhinav has carried out extensive research and study on caste system. The sessions would be organized as follows:

Day 1. Origin and evolution of caste

Day 2. Critical appraisal of the anti-caste movements of Ayyankali, Phule, Periyar, Ambedkar

Day 3. Marxism and caste question

On each day, the talk will be followed by an interactive session.

IN DEFENSE OF REASON
Indian society continues to be characterized by the barbaric caste system even in 21st century. In times of fascism, caste question has emerged on the national agenda with a renewed emphasis as evident in the wake of some recent incidents such as the institutional murder of Rohith Vemula, Una episode and Bhima Koregaon violence. However, the nature of caste system in modern capitalist era is not the same as the one that prevailed in feudal medieval India or in pre-feudal ancient India. As against the widespread belief, caste system has not remained static throughout history. There have been both temporal and spatial variations.

Write Club Saturday General

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
