Sun Apr 7, 5:00 PM
Sagar Dhara, NS Prasad, Gangadhar Panday & Lamakaan
Despite environmental laws and regulations being in place for half a century, there is a perceptible decline in the quality of the environment in India and the world. Environmental problems, e.g., climate change, biodiversity loss, etc., have now become far too big for individual countries to tackle. People must now influence governmental policy and supplement governmental efforts. This can be best done by forming a rainbow coalition of people’s initiatives in environmental conservation and protection. A civil society platform, Parisarakkagi Navu (We for the Environment) of Karnataka’s environmental groups was formed in December 2023. The formation of similar platforms in Goa and Maharashtra are under active discussion.

We have the pleasure of inviting you for a meeting to discuss forming a platform of those--mass organizations, civil society organizations, environmental groups and individuals--working in Telangana to conserve and protect its environment.

Meeting date and time: Sunday, 7 April, 5.00 pm
Meeting location (address & location below): LaMakaan, Off Road 1, Near GVK Mall, Banjara Hills. Hyderabad 500034. Google Maps location: https://maps.app.goo.gl/N2PzoKWxNt2DtuyL7

Screening of Kissa Kursi Ka
Tue Apr 9, 7:00 PM
Hyderabad Cinephiles
Kissa Kursee Ka is a 1977 film by director Amrit Nahata. The film is a political satire that lays bare the ugly reality of electoral politics. The film was banned and the prints were confiscated during the Emergency, in response to its commentary of Indira and Sanjay Gandhi.
Today this film is more relevant than ever, when we see the ruling fascist government brazenly resort to all tricks and tactics in an attempt to hold onto power, be it through EVM rigging or electoral bond scams. Join us at 7pm on Tuesday, 9 April, for a screening and discussion of this film at Lamakaan, Banjara Hills. Entry is free. In case of queries, contact 7013936466.

Disc on transparency in Election
Fri Apr 12, 6:00 PM
In Defense of Reason
The introduction of EVMs in the elections in India has been a matter of controversy for many years now. In fact, the suspicion was first raised by BJP itself when its leader G.V.L. Narsimha Rao had written a book ‘Democracy at Risk, Can we trust our Electronic Machine?’. After coming to power, BJP has started defending the use of EVMs every time some opposition member or other people raise the question of reliability of EVMs. The results of last assembly elections, particularly in states like Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh have raised fresh doubts on the credibility of EVMs. Several petitions about 100 percent EVM votes- VVPAT (Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail) verification are pending in the Supreme Court. Recently the apex court has issued notice to the Central Election Commission in this regard. The issue of EVM along with the recent revelations about the electoral bond scheme raise big question mark about the claims of free, fair and transparent elections in India. Many organisations have been demanding to ban EVMs and revert to the ballot system and also of reducing the role of money power in Indian elections. Now that the general elections are round the corner, it’s very important to raise the issue of basic political democratic rights of the voters in India. Because of this reason, we are organising a discussion on “Suspicion over EVM and the sources of electoral funding: the question of transparency in the elections”.
All are cordially invited to be part of this discussion.
Main Speaker: Padmaja Shaw (Activist and retired OU Professor)

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.

Kissa Kursee Ka is a 1977 film by director Amrit Nahata. The film is a political satire that lays bare the ugly reality of electoral politics. The film was banned and the prints were confiscated during the Emergency, in response to its commentary of Indira and Sanjay Gandhi.
Today this film is more relevant than ever, when we see the ruling fascist government brazenly resort to all tricks and tactics in an attempt to hold onto power, be it through EVM rigging or electoral bond scams. Join us at 7pm on Tuesday, 9 April, for a screening and discussion of this film at Lamakaan, Banjara Hills. Entry is free. In case of queries, contact 7013936466.

Francis Ford Coppola (born April 7, 1939) is an American film director, producer and screenwriter. He is considered one of the leading figures of the New Hollywood film movement of the 1960s and 1970s and is widely considered one of the greatest directors of all time. He receives five Academy Awards, six Golden Globe Awards, two Palmes d'Or, and a British Academy Film Award (BAFTA).

Film Title: APOCALYPSE NOW | 1979 | 153 Mins | US | English Language with English Subtitles

About the film: Apocalypse Now is a 1979 American epic war film produced and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The screenplay, co-written by Coppola, John Milius, and Michael Herr, is loosely based on the 1899 novella Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, with the setting changed from late 19th-century Congo to the Vietnam War. The film follows a river journey from South Vietnam into Cambodia undertaken by Captain Willard (Martin Sheen), who is on a secret mission to assassinate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a renegade Special Forces officer who is accused of murder and presumed insane. The ensemble cast also features Robert Duvall, Frederic Forrest, Albert Hall, Sam Bottoms, Laurence Fishburne, and Dennis Hopper. Harrison Ford, who was not yet a major star when filming, appears in a minor role.

Disc on transparency in Election
Fri Apr 12, 6:00 PM
In Defense of Reason
The introduction of EVMs in the elections in India has been a matter of controversy for many years now. In fact, the suspicion was first raised by BJP itself when its leader G.V.L. Narsimha Rao had written a book ‘Democracy at Risk, Can we trust our Electronic Machine?’. After coming to power, BJP has started defending the use of EVMs every time some opposition member or other people raise the question of reliability of EVMs. The results of last assembly elections, particularly in states like Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh have raised fresh doubts on the credibility of EVMs. Several petitions about 100 percent EVM votes- VVPAT (Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail) verification are pending in the Supreme Court. Recently the apex court has issued notice to the Central Election Commission in this regard. The issue of EVM along with the recent revelations about the electoral bond scheme raise big question mark about the claims of free, fair and transparent elections in India. Many organisations have been demanding to ban EVMs and revert to the ballot system and also of reducing the role of money power in Indian elections. Now that the general elections are round the corner, it’s very important to raise the issue of basic political democratic rights of the voters in India. Because of this reason, we are organising a discussion on “Suspicion over EVM and the sources of electoral funding: the question of transparency in the elections”.
All are cordially invited to be part of this discussion.
Main Speaker: Padmaja Shaw (Activist and retired OU Professor)

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!
