ATTN – BOMBAY KI KAHAANI MUMBAI KI ZUBAANI- 14th Dec- 13th Jan 2013 #mustshare




Twenty years have passed since Bombay was rocked by the violent and horrifying days of Dec 92-Jan 93. That violence marked our city severely, and over the last twenty years, so have the processes of globalisation, neo-liberalisation, privatisation. The cosmopolitan spirit of this city too has been regressively replaced with narrowing definitions of its “true residents”. Protests have become more difficult, but the voice of dissent has not died down. We are a loose conglomeration of activists, aca

demics, students, film makers, journalists, artists, individuals and organisations, who have come together in the last few months to speak together for and about the city that we care so much for.

From 14th December 2012 to 13th January 2013 all over the city of Bombay/Mumbai/Bambai, there will be a series of events on both memory and resistance throughout this month. There will be art installations, music on streets, railway platforms and in auditoriums, panel discussions, day long events in many colleges, universities and in various community centres, film screenings, leafleting, discussions and much more.

The schedule of events will be posted here very soon.

If you consider yourself a part of this city, then this campaign is yours. We invite you to join us in this remembrance and in celebration of Bombay, Mumbai, Bambai!

Do consider RSVPing ‘Yes‘ on this Event page in order to express your solidarity even if you’re unable to make it to the 15+ events that are being organised. This will enable your Facebook friends to also learn about the event, as a blurb about the event will be posted on your Facebook wall and they will also be notified about it.

Kathalaya works with storytelling centers around the world in both urban as well as rural scenarios.
