Centre for the Study of Society and Secularism (CSSS) cordially invites you to Sangat- A Cultural Evening of theatre and folk music scheduled on 8th February 2020 at Land’s End Amphitheatre, Bandra Fort, Bandra (W) from 5.30 pm to 8.30 pm with free entry.
Renowned theatre artist and writer-director Rasika Agashe will perform the play, Gandhi our Main (Gandhi and Me).The play seeks to reclaim Gandhiji to raise questions about our current socio-political situation such as – Why do we need Gandhi today? Why are truth and non-violence important today? In the play today’s ‘Me’ (the common man) is stuck in his mundane daily life wherein he doesn’t hold himself responsible for the wrongs in society. Engulfed by materialism, and rendered spineless, he has forgotten the impact of truthfulness and fails to realize the gravity of injustice prevailing in society. Gandhiji, on the other hand, wants to make him understand the importance of truth and non-violence.
Indie Folk band, Kabir Café helmed by Neeraj Arya will bring the Dohas of Kabir to a modern audience in their unique and dynamic style. The band seamlessly melds the poetry of the mystic saint with influences ranging from rock, pop, reggae, to Carnatic and classical music.
We invite you to join us in our endeavour to celebrate the syncretic fabric of Indian society through Gandhiji, Kabir Das and their legacy.
