QAM 2015 and The Hive present Q Fest

Marathi Literature with Bindumadhav Khire
PANDEY BECHAN SHARMA ‘UGRA’
Better known by his pen-name ‘Ugra’ (extreme), he is not only an exemplary writer of his time, but is also a necessary intervention to create a revolution in literature and journalism. His collection of Hindi short stories entitled Chocolate (1927), triggered the first public debate on homosexuality in modern India and created such an uproar that almost every major public figure, from Premchand to Gandhi, joined in the discussion.
SAADAT HASAN ‘MANTO’
He is undoubtedly one of the best short-story tellers of the 20th century, and one of the most controversial as well. He is often compared with D. H. Lawrence, and like Lawrence he also wrote about the topics considered social taboos in Indo-Pakistani Society- incest, rape, prostitution and homosexuality ; but always stamped with his vivid satire and a unique sense of humor.
JASHN-E-QALAM DRAMATIC READINGS honours the inimitable spirit and artistry of these iconoclasts for their courage to displace many idols — sex, religion and love — through stark writing that placed humanity above everything else.
