About the event

Majaz Zinda Hai: Bringing back the John Keats of Urdu Poetry

इश्क़ और इंक़लाब का अनोखा संगम

It never ceases to amaze us just much love Majaz inspires among poetry lovers of India. No doubt that he was a prolific poet and a cult hero of romantic folklore. But his incomplete life made him a paragon of the virtue of bohemian creativity and also of the merits of rebellion which inspired many generations of his admirers. Incidentally, his one-time Guru Fani had also paved the way for a poetic tradition which romanticised tragedy, death and foreboding. But for Majaz, part of the allure, part of the image was the rebellion. So, in a way, even his death was an act of rebellion. He went away too soon but tragically, his death rebelled and remained very much with us.

This theatrical presentation of his rebellious life and bohemian death will telescope the whole Majaz era and its hypnotic romance through poetry, drama and music with the mythopoetic lure of Lucknow and Aligarh sublimated in our collective consciousness.
