#var:page_name# cover

Two seasoned storytellers come together in an evening of masterful Dastangoi storytelling. Mehra & Naqvi perform two satirical & radical short stories of strong females who refuse to be cowed down or tamed; Ismat Chugtai's 'Gharwali' and 'Mughal Baccha'.

Gharwali, an inimitable take on marriage and sexual liberation, tells the story of Lajjo a woman of precise pleasures. Mughal Baccha tells a tragic tale of a difficult marital life of dark-skinned man and fair woman.

Sunil Mehra is an author, curator, filmmaker and a social commentator with decades of experience behind and in-front of the camera. Askari Naqvi, a human right activist & lawyer, is a celebrated exponent of Soz Khwani and known for his soulful baritone. For ages 16 & above.
