Hip Hip(py) hurray
There is something about the 70s. And to recreate the magic, you might have to pull out an old pair of John Lennon-framed goggles from the most cherished belongings in your parents' closet. Let's look at it through the translucent sepia-coloured glass; it's a peculiar sort of brown study that will lead you on to a better understanding of the era. The first that comes to notice, during the delightful chase down the memory lane, are the bell-bottom pants and the beautiful fringes, which compliment the brown ringlets. The 70's emerged fresh out of the socio-political commotion across the globe that stirred the aching need for revolution and peace, thereby the ideology ó 'power to the people'.

The voice lives on...
If only seeing is believing, anybody who did not have the good fortune to attend a Jagjit Singh concert would actually never understand the magic he cast on his audience! Ask those who had the pleasure to be a part of one such concert and they would not need to try hard to recollect every moment. 

MELODY KING: Jagjit Singh

Play on
A short story by Rabindranath Tagore makes the basis for the play Munna Ki Wapsi and the interjection of Kabir's dohas makes it special. Adapted and directed by P Chandrashekhar, Munna Ki Wapsi makes constant comparison between materialism and devotion, commitment and nonsensical sentimentality.
