Bioscope Classics: Readings by Vivek Oberoi and Richa Chadda at the Times LitFest 2017

Books and films have much in common. Making this clear to th audience on the final day of the Times Litfest 2017 were actors Richa Chadha and Vivek Oberoi. The duo read out scenes from two novels that have been made into films. First, they read an excerpt in English from ‘Pather Panchali’ by Bibhutibhushan Banerji that was made into the acclaimed film by Satyajit Ray. The second reading was in Hindi, and the actors read from the novel ‘Maare Gaye Gulfam’ by Phanishwarnath Renu, which was adapted to screen as ‘Teesri Kasam’ by Basu Bhattacharya and starred Raj Kapoor.

The Unfettered God – Lalon Fakir’s Search

Lalon Fakir united people of different communities through his songs that expressed love of mankind and of God, without adhering to any particular religious creed or any traditional spiritual school. His simple teachings alienated the orthodox communities of Hindus and Muslims. He inspired thousands of simple folk who were attracted by his songs and by his universal message of love and hope. His message has become more relevant today than ever. Danish Husain with the help of two Baul singers bought this message in an accessible and engaging way to the engaged audience.
