Dastan Dhaai Aakhar Ki - This dastangoi presentation is on Kabir - the poet and the lover. The narrative is based on historical research and folk lore around the 14th-century Bhakti poet. Interspersed with his 'khadi boli' poetry, the dastan takes you on a journey in search of finding the Kabir who is within you.
