Zambeel Dramatic Readings Presents Taoos Chaman Ki Mayna

Saturday, 16th March 2013 | 7:00 pm

Join us at T2F for a dramatic rendition of Naiyer Masud’s endearing tale set in mid nineteenth century Lucknow.

Taoos Chaman Ki Mayna by Naiyer Masud is based in Lucknow in the mid nineteenth century, in the last years of Vajid Ali Shah’s reign. Initially written for children, this reworked version for adults brings to light Lucknow’s traditions and culture in a period that was undergoing rapid change. The story is narrated as a first-hand account by Kaalay Mian, a gardener employed in the royal garden.
