Rage & Beyond Irawati’s Gandahari

Another event for the “Remembering Veenapani Festival 2017”, “Rage & Beyond: Irawati’s Gandahari” under the writing and direction of Sanjukta Wagh, with Hitesh Dhutia on acoustic guitar.

Sanjurta Wagh says: “Rage and Beyond” is not just my response to the character of Gandhari as she appears in Iravati Karve’s “Yugant”, a text that was hailed as one of the first contemporary reinterpretations of the Mahabharata by a woman writer in the 1960’s. When I enter this text in 2014, I am negotiating with the tremendous ebb and flow that inevitably happens when one tries to embody an archetype, a mythological character that is so deeply entrenched in the Indian cultural consciousness. It is at the same time my interaction with Irawati Karve as an empowered woman, deeply rooted in Marathi tradition, someone who was known for her scholarship and yet sought to have a conversation with the world through her non-academic writing. In this rewriting and embodiment of Irawati’s Gandhari, I am trying to keep this complexity alive without the need to either essentialise or glorify either author or her character, by not trying to fill in the blanks.”

At SveDame at Well Cafe Leftersi and friends offered last night a night of dancable music with beats from around the globe. Lefteris Grigoriou hailing form Greece is visiting Auroville with his family, and had found here a “fertile” forest ground to share his music. All the event was more or les jamming or improvised on the spot by either local or visiting musicians joining Lefteris and his wife at the moments. The audience, mostly of guests and volunteers was very excited to the rhythms, and it didn’t take long that they would move by them.
