Inaugurating The Panjab Dialogues

   Posted by: aman   in Punjab

Dear friends,

When I took up the work on PANJAB: Journeys Through Fault Lines, I had hoped I would be able to converge diverse and eclectic Panjab on one tract and it would serve as the basis of future conversations. Many in Panjab and elsewhere know much more about the current realities than me but the issue is we do not come together to dialogue. I am so glad that wish of mine came true. Thank you Manu Oberoi, Preeti Gill, Jasdeep Singh, Ankit Chhabra and teams Sanjhi Sikhya, Majha House, Kirrt, on May 2, 2020 we launched a platform: The Panjab Dialogues.

I am grateful to friends mentioned above that they chose PANJAB as the inaugural text. After all, its chapters explore the fault lines of Panjab.

THE PANJAB DIALOGUE inaugural event went very well. 136 participants, many more than had registered. Preeti introduced the Dialogues until 6 minutes. I spoke on the book until 55 minutes. Jasdeep collated the questions from the audience and we had a Q&A until 1.17.45 minutes. Then Ankit and the participants experimented with break-out rooms and more responses until 1.38.00 minutes. After which Preeti concluded the session.

Personally, the session was very satisfying for me. Please see more here …

One of the artists, Sharada Kerkar drew her impression of the session.

Very graciously, The Tribune covered the idea. Please see more here …
