Romeo Juliet
Last night the Abhang theatre group shared with the community at Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of Indian Culture in International Zone a play Romeo Juliet. The play unfolds many questions in the context of structure of relationship, choice, innocence, revenge and hatred. A certain sense of incompleteness pervades within each character when he endeavours to transform his fantasy in to a reality. This in turn makes the character fall into the trap of Queen Mab that leads the direction of the play.

Classical Music With Subhra Guha
Guha is acknowledged as one of the finest thumri singers of the Poorab Ang among the younger generation of singers. Her voice is strikingly tuneful, exhibiting exquisite tonal malleability and is remarkably suited for khayal recital. Her style of rendition displays a mellow blending of vidya, impeccable raagdari and a rich gayaki that is both creative and aesthetically appealing. Her collection of rare thumri, dadra, kajri, chaiti, etc in pure Benaras tradition is also matchless.
