As Rohit Vasudevan, Hardik Vaghela and Mohammad Muneem performed and discussed the meaning and thought behind their compositions, the cool January evening gave Sufi music a whole new meaning. This is what Gyaan Adab (pic, left) seeks to do—discuss and understand arts—music, literature, photography and folklore. So, be it the chants of Bhil poetry with celebrated author, poet and folklorist Randhir Khare or a closer reading of Karna’s Wife—The Outcast’s Queen, a story from Uruvi’s point of view, this centre celebrates arts in different forms. Founded by Farook Merchant and Naseema Merchant, this is Pune’s first literary centre. There’s a wide collection of books, magazines and newspapers which members can browse through. Besides their own collection, Gyaan Adab welcomes members to donate books since the place is all about sharing and spreading knowledge.
