Dastangoi Baithak

Photograph Courtesy: Dave Besseling

We have instituted a fortnightly Baithak for the art form's practitioners, or those with interest in the art form and a desire to be a practitioner at a future stage. The Baithak will be a forum to discuss ideas about the art form, stories, show work-in-progress to peers, share interesting related info, and just catch up with each other.

The Baithak is not a performance. We're not looking for an audience. So, please be there only if you wish to engage seriously with the art form.

The Dastangoi Baithak will be held every second and fourth Thursday of the month from 7pm to 9pm at Anusha and Mahmood's residence. As it is a private residence, we expect you to RSVP us before coming. Please send a mail to Mahmood at mahmoodfarooqui at yahoo dot com or me at dan dot ayyaar at gmail dot com. You may even send us an sms. Our numbers are given at the bottom of our blog's page.

If in any case we're not having a Baithak on any Thursday, we'll post it on the blog.

Thanks and looking forward to you all next Thursday.

Say, how about setting up a branch in Chandigarh?
There ARE people who study Urdu and Persian, people who read and write, people who are interested in theater.... So i guess, the right people and resources WILL appear sooner or later.
How about starting a small thing here, say once a month or once in two months or so??
