Main Rahi Masoom
Sat Jan 4, 7:30 PM
Sutradhar
About the play:

MAIN RAHI MASOOM, a solo performance enacted by Vinay Varma and directed by Prof. Bhaskar Shewalkar is a biographical sketch of the famous Hindi and Urdu writer, the Late Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. This performance is first of its kind on Rahi.

This 70-minute poignant monologue shows how Rahi detested communal and vote-bank politics, and how he fought against the divisive forces in the country through his writings. He was a strong nationalist first and a Muslim next. He also staunchly opposed pseudo-secularism. Sample this: “main ek Hindustani musalman hoon aur iske siva meri aur koee pehchaan naheen hai” or “vatan mazhab nahin jo badla ja sake”. He was upfront against the fundamentalists on both sides of the divide. He was brutally honest regarding politics of hatred, and felt that the interest of communal elements among both Hindus and Muslims lies in keeping the two communities aloof from each other and to create distrust among them”…sampradaaikta(communalism) ka koee dharm nain hota” or “zahid-e-tang nazar ne mujhe kaafir jaana aur kaafir ye samajhta hai ki musalman hoon main……”

The monologue ends with Rahi’s rare nazm Vaseeyat.

Rahi’s journey begins on 1st September, 1927 in Gangauli, a small village in the Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh and ends with his vaseeyat in which he wills that he be laid to rest in the lap of Ganga, whom he considered his second mother. He passed away on 15 March 1992.

During his illustrious career, Rahi Masoom Raza has written lyrics, dialogues and stories for various movies and television series. His high came with the telecast of TV series 'Mahabharat' that was based on the Hindu epic Mahabharat. Rahi, a Muslim, wrote the screenplay and dialogue of the TV series that went on to become the most watched TV series in India. At one time, its TRP was a staggering 86 %. This was a triumph for Rahi as some Hindu zealots had criticized his inclusion in the team. Terms of address like “Matashri”, “Pitashri”, “Bhratashri”, and “Jijashri” etc. were brought into the popular realm by Rahi.

The Urban Kashmir Project
Sat Jan 18, 10:30 AM
Hobnob Events and Entertainments
What comes to an Urban living's Mind, staying in a city, far away from the lands, never visited, when he hears the word "Kashmir". A very less percent of Hyderabad Population might have gone to Kashmir and seen or known it by themselves and if visited, even then wouldn't have known any ground realities. All we know, interpret is what we see, hear or read through media.

There is a unique thinking each one is having about Kashmir. Some see it as the Paradise, some say it was. For some, it maybe seen as a state that seen a load of bloodshed while some will see it as oppressed one.

The Urban Kashmir Project tries to capture a webbed compilation of your mind to create a collective Urban picture of Kashmir as we see. At the end, we would want to see how Hyderabad sees Kashmir it as of today. A mixture of realities

A Discussion on Death penalty
Sat Jan 18, 5:30 PM
Dialogue towards an alternative
CAN RIGOROUS PUNISHMENTS REDUCE CRIME?

A discussion in context with the recent encounter and death penalty to rape convicts.

Revenge begets revenge, anger leads to anger, hate leads to more hate and blood lust has no end. People are seen believing and demanding capital punishment as the solution for henious crimes including cases of Nirbhaya and Disha.

Retributive justice punishment makes the offender pay his debt for the sin committed whereas reformative justice is about forgiveness, healing and reintegration of offender. Criminal law has moved from retributive to reformative as historically we have understood former theory only looks at the crime and the fitting punishment, on the other hand latter theory delves into various aspects of crime like the social environment, pyschogical, therapeutic rehabilitation, etc with understanding that punishment should benefit the society as a whole and produce more good to society than the harm of the crime.

It's very painful and disturbing to witness the most henious crimes occuring around us especially sexual offences against women. The way how these crimes are dealt with is more important as we have to check how helpful is the present system in curbing the crime and preventing it in future.

In the context of growing demand for killing of offenders we invite you to participate in a 'dialogue' on whether 'Rigorous punishments reduce crime' at Lamakaan on 18th January at 6pm.

Secularism A Curse Today
Sun Jan 19, 4:30 PM
Lamakaan An Open Cultural Space
We have just accepted secularism as a constitutionally declared value but have not asked ourselves what it means to be secular as a society. We have just gone on mouthing slogans about secularism for decades. But we haven’t yet started discussing what happens when a society has to be secularized.

When communal crisis arises, people open their mouths and scream and shout and say this is not what they want from Indian society. But we don’t have enough people discussing what it really means to be a secular society.

Eventually secularism has become a curse word today. Fascists refer to it as sickular and people claiming themselves as secular are called anti nationals too. In order to discuss the real meaning of secularism and the way it is being distorted, In Defense of Reason and Lamakaan prog council is organising a discussion on 19th January 2020. All are welcome !!

EK DURACHARI RAJA
Sun Jan 19, 7:30 PM
Shudrka Hyderabad
The play, EK DURACHARO RAJA 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, Apurupa, 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.

DAANT PARWAH / దంత సంరక్షణ
/ TOOTH CARE

Directed and Produced by Sahil Jagasia
Language: Hindi/Telugu/Dakhini
Duration: 25 minutes
*Free Entry*

Synopsis: In Telanaga(India), Hyderabad’s old city is a living display of age old crafts and craftsmen. One such unlikely practice found at Telephone Exchange Road, East of Charminar is the sculpting of dentures.Since the establishment of the first clinic in 1904 by Mohd. Dilawar Ali, the dentist street of Charminar has evolved into a space offering devoted tooth care to lesser privileged patients. Following the routine of three technicians at work in their workshops, Daant Parwah depicts an ageing street and its antique occupation. Filmed through an observational lens - the documentary offers a peek into the a few patients’ fleeting anxieties of teeth fitting and a tender quest to retain their social and physical identity attached with a functional set of teeth.

*Kindly note that the screening will begin at 8:15 pm followed by a Q&A with the director. We look forward to seeing you there!

Featuring:
Mohd. Jaffer [Fine Dental Clinic]

SYNOPSIS:
"What is Kashmir, but a simple beauty and an ugly truth."

Kashmir has been a conflict zone for more than 72 years, and the recent abrogation of Article 370 has plunged it into yet another crisis.

Come witness an inventive take on the history of Kashmir, from mythology to contemporary reality, touching narratives and counter-narratives that continue to colour our perspectives about the valley and its people.

Till now it has been performed 10times in different cities like Udaipur, Jaipur, Delhi and Mumbai.

Resistance and reclamation
Sat Feb 1, 11:00 AM
Almaas Masood
Since December, people across India have mobilized to protest against the government after it passed a law that many see as discriminatory against Muslims, tribals, scheduled caste and scheduled tribes, lower and weaker income community, orphanages, old age homes, and the LGBTQ community. People, especially women have been on the front lines of these protests.

As an independent photojournalist, I have attended the organized as well as the flash protests in Hyderabad to capture the people's determination, energy, resistance against the system, against the discrimination, and most importantly, the unity and harmony which the system wants to disrupt.

I would like to showcase this resistance, as the people reclaim their voice, their power, their opinions in a photo exhibition over a period of two days. From 1st February 2020 - 2nd February 2020.

Write Club Meetup 222
Sat Feb 1, 3:00 PM
Write Club Hyderabad
Please help schedule this for this Saturday: 4th December 2020. 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 alternate Saturday afternoon – 3 to 6 PM
