New Stories with Masala Chai
Performed reading of select stories from ‘Kissa Kissa Lucknowwaaa’ written by Himanshu Bajpai

An NCPA Presentation

The focus of this work has been on Lucknowi people in particular. These aren’t tales of nawabs; rather, they are those of a man, a hard-working man, a wage earner, whom author Himanshu Bhai Bajpayee has portrayed as a significant social figure. This is also an effort to create a bridge between Hindi and Urdu and maintain their unity.

These are the accounts of persons whose lives are rarely mentioned in connection with the “Lucknowi” brand. These are “Lucknowwa” tales rather than “Lucknowi” ones. These stories don’t contain any nawabi jalwas. The people of Lucknow are jalwanuma in this. Even in the stories that reference nawabs, the protagonists are not nawabs but rather the regular common man.

Narration by Vishal Singh

Vishal Singh is an Indian film and stage actor and voice artiste, a former advertising and banking professional who recently featured in Antim, a Hindi feature film, and other web shows. He has given voice in more than a hundred films including recent hits like 83, K.G.F: Chapter 1 & 2 and Kantara, to name a few, and to commercials.

Admission on a first-come-first-served basis.
