The fearless writer wrote plays, radio broadcasts and short stories along the themes of feminism and class conflict. Her stories are timeless, simple and revolutionary.
Travel back in time at Odeon Social as Fazal Rashidl and Fouzia Dastango take you through epic narratives by Ismat Chughtai, "days of yore" style! A 13th Century recital woven together by Fazal and Fouzia, Dastangoi
Dastangoi is a lost art-form that has found its wings in the past decade. Performed by either one or two people, this art form originated in Prehistoric Arabia in the 13th Century and was extremely popular among both the elites and commoners of Delhi and Lucknow. Expressions and voice being the only props that a Dastango uses, a Dastango is expected to have an ocean of words and expressions at his fingertips.
