City’s most fabled performing arts show – Kadak Badshahi, is arriving with its second edition on January 18 and will continue to vitalise the audience of Ahmedabad with significant metropolis chronicles until February 1, 2018, at the 3000 people capacitating Shreyas Foundation Amphitheatre. Scripted by danseuse Mallika Sarabhai, Nisarg Trivedi and Yadavan Chandran the multisensory play, which is named after the famous tea of Ahmedabad, showcases the diverse historical heritage of the 600-year-old heritage city with a contribution of numerous recitalists and arts and culture aficionados.

‘Kya Tha? Katha’: Devdutt Pattanaik Closes the Gujarat Literature Festival on a High Note ‘Kya Tha? Katha’: Devdutt Pattanaik Closes the Gujarat Literature Festival on a High Note

Take it from someone who calls herself a poet: there is nothing as beautiful as the sight of a poet reading out his work and the sound of people simultaneously saying “AHA”! It seemed to me that the third day of the Gujarat Literature festival saw every person who visited not wanting it to end. It was a full house at all three venues of the Festival; be it where ghazal kaars talked about mythology, entrepreneurs about their love for literature, or authors about translation. And like children waiting for an autograph in line, the evening saw a crowd gathered in two queues, eagerly awaiting author-mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik, and celebrated newsman Rajdeep Sardesai. Mithya: The Subjective Truth Image courtesy: Organiser When it comes to creating an aura, Devdutt Pattanaik stole the show. In an auditorium filled to the brim with avid readers and fans, Devdutt walked in alone, and talked for an hour about what he’s been exploring through stories and mythologies.“The first time man asked the question ‘Kya tha?’ was when the answer and the word ...
