(Poetry Performance by Metamorphosis Theatre Inc)LIKE A FLOWING RIVER – A Collection of Poems by Gulzar

7.00 pm
Cosmic Auditorium, BNAC

Duration: 60 Mins Language: English

Like a Flowing River is poetry performance of a collection of Gulzar’s lyrical and sensitive tribute to nature in all its many splendored facets. In Gulzar’s poetic lexicon, it is human beings who are very often the objects of observation for nature. Instead of being the observed, nature becomes the observer of our finite and puny worlds and our myriad irrelevant preoccupations. The dexterity with which he crafts this process simultaneously brings out both the majesty of nature and, by sheer contrast, the limitations of human vanity and endeavour. Like a Flowing River is a powerful poetry piece, combining poetry, music and visual aesthetics.

(Dramatized Reading by Jashn- E-Qalam )MANAV KI KAHANI – Written by Rahul Sankrityayan

7.00 pm
Gyan Ganga Amphitheatre, BNAC
Duration: 70 Mins Language: Hindustani

One of Rahul Sankrityayan (1889-1963) most famous short stories in Hindi, Manav Ki Kahani, is an attempt to present a fictional account of our modern understanding of the evolution of man from his earliest days as a Hunter-Gatherer to the discovery of fire, tools, animal husbandry, agriculture etc. It is not only remarkable for its historical elements interwoven with fiction, but also in proving the author to be the most outspoken while conveying the harsh and pinching realities of the Indian history and culture.
