Bharatanatyam explores Kabir, Gandhi and the Geeta in Tridhara

The book by Dr Uma Anantani that was released (2/8) with a welcome informality at the H. K. Auditorium has the title Tridhara  (University Granth Nirman Board, 2022), a collection of the researcher-choreographer’s articles in three segments – Dance, Beauty and Spirit. I take the liberty to use this title (instead of the prosaic ‘A Double-Bill of Dance Productions’) for the programme that combined the book release with two Bharatanatyam dance performances, one preceding and the other following, by Rasadhwani’s Artistic Director Shivangee Vikram and her team. The three parts were pleasingly coordinated in a level voice with a sense of economy of time by Gargi Anantani, who flew from Bangalore. The three pleasing streams of the programme, following an…...

Uttarayan in Ahmedabad Pol

 

In this Photo Studio, photographer Ashish Mehta of ‘Meet Me at Khadia’, who has been running a time-honoured photo-walk in the walled city of Ahmedabad captures the authentic flavour of Amdavad’s kite festival known as Uttarayan.

Also known as Makar Sankranti in various traditions, Uttarayan festival, is dedicated to the Sun God and marks end of the 6 month period that began with June Solstice. Makar Sankranti, the Indian equivalent of Winter solstice marks the beginning of 6 month long ‘Uttarayan’ period, in which  the northern hemisphere of the planet is tilted towards the Sun. Considered an auspicious time for new beginnings, particularly in agrarian societies, this day is marked with lot of festivity. The festivity is passionately celebrated all across India, but in the city of Ahmedabad, it is specially rejoiced by flying vivid kites using a sharp abrasive string called Manja.

The Heritage city of Ahmedabad is famous for its Uttarayan revelry as people and families gather on the Pol terraces to fly kites with utmost enthusiasm. The festivity is marked with authentic Gujarati dishes including the quintessential dish full of winter vegetables called Undhiyu. This album is a compilation of Mehta’s four years of Uttarayan photography, which was mostly conducted during the evening times of the festival in the Khadia Pol. The senior lensman is using Canon 1100D to capture the saffron hues of the Amdavadi Uttarayan skies.

To be a part of this celebration, you can contact Ashish Mehta as this year he has organised a ‘Uttarayan in Pol‘ event within the walled city of Ahmedabad. Since the happening is meant to be a traditional affair, participants will be given colourful kites, environment friendly manja, lip-smacking indigenous delicacies and of course an original Amdavadi Uttarayan experience curated by Mehta himself.

The captions of the photographs are the different names of Uttarayan/Makar Sankranti in various regions of India, Nepal and Pakistan.

The only human presence in this world is of the Narrator, who is a ragpicker – her name is Shakuntala Devi (Shubha Nigam). The rest of them are ‘despicable’ creatures, the scum of society -with one exception all street dogs. She is all ears on overhearing them talking about religion. Those on the fringe are…

Poetry

કસુંબીનો રંગ/Kasumbi No Rang

લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

જનનીના હૈયામાં પોઢંતા પોઢંતા પીધો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ પીધો કસુંબીનો રંગ

ધોળાં ધાવણ કેરી ધારાએ ધારાએ પામ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

બહેનીના કંઠે નીતરતાં હાલરડાંમાં ઘોળ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ ઘોળ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

ભીષણ રાત્રિ કેરા પહાડોની ત્રાડોએ ચોળ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

દુનિયાના વીરોનાં લીલા બલિદાનોમાં ભભક્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ ભભક્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

સાગરની પારે સ્વાધીનતાની કબરોમાં મહેક્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

ભક્તોના તંબૂરથી ટપકેલો મસ્તીભર ચાખ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ ચાખ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

એવી વ્હાલી દિલદારાના પગની મેંદી પરથી ચૂમ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

નવલી દુનિયા કેરાં સ્વપ્નોમાં કવિઓએ ગાયો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ ગાયો કસુંબીનો રંગ

મુક્તિને ક્યારે નિજ રક્તો રેડણહારે પાયો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

પીડિતની આંસુડા ધારે હાહાકારે રેલ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ રેલ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

શહીદોના ધગધગતા નિઃશ્વાસે નિઃશ્વાસે સળગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

ધરતીનાં ભૂખ્યાં કંગાલોને ગાલે છલકાયો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ છલકાયો કસુંબીનો રંગ

એવા બિસ્મિલ બેટાઓની માતાને ભાલે કાંઈ મલક્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

 

ઘોળી ઘોળી પ્યાલા ભરિયા રંગીલાં હો પીજો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ પીજો કસુંબીનો રંગ

એવા દોરંગા દેખીને ડરિયાં ટેકીલાં હો લેજો કસુંબીનો રંગ

હો રાજ મને લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ

લાગ્યો કસુંબીનો રંગ
