Dastan-e- Radha Krishna - A Melodious Rendition

Love is the only antidote to hate & hatred!

Decided to devote our next production *Dastan-e-Radhe-Krishna - a mellifluous rendition to the cause of amity and harmony...
Distilled from Namita Gokhle and Malashri Lal's "Finding Radha", it has been penned by Danish Iqbal. The performance will be interspersed with age old melodies which are hallmark of fabled Dagar Family's enviable heritage.

Verily an enticing confluence of vibrant traditions!!!

Dialects Of Delhi

Dialects Of Delhi

Delhi, the capital of India, has mixed cultures and lifestyles, that bind the whole of India together with a thread. It is an articulate matrix of different people, different mind sets and their different way of expressions. Delhi does not have any regional language of its own. Just like its culture, even its languages have been adapted from the different regions of India and they have blended smoothly with the city's rich culture. So here we are, trying to put forward our interpretation on Dialects of Delhi. Watch us live at the Oxford Bookstore, CP, on 21st February, 6pm.
