Anjuman e Dil is a series of six evenings of Ghazal Shanasi, devoted to understanding the Urdu Ghazal, its various genres seen as a mirror of different times in history in the words of varied poets in the voices of several singers.
The evenings are contextualized and curated by eminent filmmaker Muzaffar Ali who has nursed a passion for poetry and music, evident in all that he does - from his first feature film Gaman in 1976 followed by his iconic film Umrao Jaan, a ghazal in celluloid, up to present times - Jahan e Khusrau, Annual World Sufi Music Festival.
On the 21st of December 2019 Anjuman e Dil presents Faiz Shanasi, the poet of the century. He is the poet of the subcontinent who transcends borders as he touches upon the imbalances of a universal human predicament. His lyricism and sharpness of comment on the ripping apart of an egalitarian system is a piercing comment on our system.
Following this event Maashra will present experiential cuisine and beverages curated by Meera Ali, author of award winning book ‘Dining with the Nawabs’, after Anjuman e Dil for you to enjoy a variety of foods and drinks. (DINNER NOT INCLUDED IN EVENT COST)
