Mumbai Local: A Language On the Move - My Writings in Gujarati

ARTISTS Sitanshu Yashaschandra
When you pick up a book to read, you don't just get a story, you get a glimpse inside a persons head. Thoughts, perspectives, ideologies - they are all reflected in those words. Black-and-white letters that speak to you.
But, if you step back from the pages, do you see a larger text? Does it foreground a role literature plays in society, a duty to protest? Or does it privilege romantic exotica? Does it reflect reality or is it removed from it? And what happens if the voice from those words is a voice from the margins of society - its problems or its comforts? Do people listen?
We are delighted to invite Sitanshu Yashchandra - celebrated poet and playwright - to Mumbai Local. For Sitanshu, being a writer is being an explorer. A person who is unafraid to let his story meander without a map and who is confident enough to share his bafflement instead of any prefabricated vision. Its not about confining oneself to any power-dominant ideology or market-tested strategy, but to allow oneself to get lost.
In this Mumbai Local, Sitanshu will explore the role of the regional writer and the alternative texts he writes. While these may not be at the centre of culture, could they cultivate a compelling presence for the public? Through readings from his own poems and excerpts from his plays, Sitanshu will open up this world of questions and insights for us. We will see how the delight of writing lies not only in its end, but in the journey as well. We will understand the value of literature that is playworthy, over just directional. And we will witness a writer who knows how to live his role fully and powerfully, even without being in the spotlight of culture.
Join us to share the evening with a brilliant mind, an astute writer and a deeply perceptive person.
