Retelling: Story Session

Today, for the first time, we publicly shared excerpts from the script of Shadow Liberation's new play, Ramayana Remix. I couldn't have picked a better venue for it than Maraa's anti-clocks: october jam session on retelling mythological stories. Chandni Venkataraman even sang How Many Lifetimes from Sita's perspective.

Timbaktu Collective

What happens when you take a barren drought stricken plot of land, and work on restoring the habitat and uplifting the inhabitants? Timbaktu Collective in Andra Pradesh, India.



I had the honor of conducting a 2-day theatre workshop for some of the youth in the school there.


This place is completely off the grid. The electricity comes from solar panels and the water is hand pumped from wells.



And the food is so good! Don't miss out on Timbaktu Organic, available in health food stores in Bangalore and Hyderabad.
