Event Description : 
FILM : Narayan Desai’s "Gandhi Katha" Screening of 10 DVDs over 6 days

Executive Producer: Suhas Borker

Presentation of the set of 10 DVDs to Shri N. N. Vohra, President IIC (tbc)

Contemporizing Katha Form: Dr Varsha Das, Writer and Art Critic

Reinventing Katha as a Political Idiom: Dr. Ashis Nandy, Political Psychologist, Sociologist and Futurist

The screening commemorates 150 years of the birth anniversary of Mohanadas Karamchand Gandhi and 15 years of Gandhi Katha. The Gandhi Katha was started by Narayan Desai in 2004 as a reparative act of creating non-violence after the violence in Gujarat in 2002. Narayan Bhai took the Gandhi Katha across India and abroad till he passed away in 2015. The Gandhi Katha is an amazing opportunity to relive the incredible times of India's freedom struggle. Kathas have been an age old communication form in India. Narayan Bhai completely revolutionised this ancient art form by making it contemporary and relevant to our times. The DVDs capture Narayan Bhai's inimitable style  of  vibrant and earthy storytelling as he reads, enacts, recreates from his four-volume biography of Mahatma Gandhi - Maru Jivan Ej Mari Vani (My Life is My Message) (2004), translated into English (Orient BlackSwan, 2009) interspersed with live bhajans sung by students of Sardar Patel School.

The 15 hours recording of this set of DVDs was done during the Gandhi Katha held at the Gandhi King Memorial Plaza - IIC in November 2010
