Lit­er­a­ture club

India Today - - BUZZ - by Aditi Pai

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.
