23rd April 2016
This day marked the begining of the journey of Arthshila. This multi arts space gives every person an opportunity to seek and deliver art.
The journey started with the foundation laying ceremony by the Gulzar, Pt. Birju Maharaj, Shyam Benegal, Sobodh Gupta and Sanjana Kapoor. It continued with the Puppet show directed by Dadi Padumjee and a panel discussion on Why Culture?, Progressive songs by Parivartan Natya Mandali and Lakeirein-lines across border written by Gulzar and directed by Salim Arif. The play was a journey of the last 60years of Indo-Pak relations with stories of hope, despair, passion and redemption.
