    BOOK DISCUSSION - Of Gardens And Graves: Essays On Kashmir, Poems In Translation by Suvir Kaul, with photographs by Javed Dar. The book examines the textures of everyday life in Kashmir after 1990, the years of pervasive militarization of the valley. It combines personal essays with enquiries into the pre- and post-Partition histories and political actions that underlie the present conflict. The volume also features translations of poems written in Kashmiri in these last twenty-five years of conflict. The author argues that such creative writing is a powerful archive for our understanding of the experiences, and thus the political feelings, of Kashmiris. These poems enact for us fissures in Kashmiri lives and emphasize the effects of long-term violence and dislocation on individuals and communities. In doing so, they remind us why Kashmir remains an extraordinary challenge to the functioning of democracy in India. Panelists: Ayesha Kidwai, Professor, School of Languages, JNU; Gowhar Fazili, Researcher, Dept. of Sociology, Delhi School of Economics; Suvir Kaul, Professor, University of Pennsylvania & Javed Dar photojournalist.  Moderator: Asad Zaidi, Publisher, Three Essays Collective

    BOOK LAUNCH - To The Farthest Rock by Mohan Rakesh In 1952, at the age of twenty-seven, Mohan Rakesh undertook a journey to south India, travelling by bus, train and steamer along the western coast from Bombay to Kanyakumari. Young and ardent, he dreamt of the wide expanse of sea that would make up for a childhood spent in Amritsar’s narrow lanes, and had visions of comely guides who would look kindly upon his wandering. But once he set out from Delhi on a train to Bombay, his visions slipped away and complex reality took over. The memoir is a remarkable account of the hope and despair that characterized post- Independence India. Rakesh had only published a few short stories when he quit a teaching job in Shimla in order to travel, but readers who know his later work will recognize his skill with portraits of people and his exceptional ability to render fluctuations of feeling. Set against the verdant coastal landscape of Goa and Kerala, this absorbing travelogue is a fine introduction to the mind of one of Hindi’s greatest novelists and playwrights. Collab: Harper Collins

    DOC FILM - Wind Of Change (Eng/2012/40mins) Dir.Julia Dahr The documentary portrays a farmer family in Kenya in their fight against the effects of climate change. After the Kisilu family's house is ruined in a dramatic storm, we get to follow the family as they try to adapt to the harsh conditions of drought and strong winds. Their desperate situation becomes increasingly worse as the much anticipated rainy season fails to arrive. We get to share their dreams, moments of joy and struggle.The film is shot while East-Africa experienced the worst drought in over 50 years. Wind Of Change gives the effect of the drought a human face, and brings us close to the struggle that individuals need to overcome due to global climate change. The film captures the frontlines in the battle against climate change. Collab: CMS Vatavaran
