MOVIE SCREENING – CHARULATAMovies
Satyajit Ray’s film Charulata is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s story The Broken Nest. The setting of the story is of Calcutta in British India. Charulata is the bored, artistic, cultured, much younger wife of a newspaper editor and proprietor who prides himself on being a bold free-thinker. His charming young cousin, a would-be writer called Amal comes to stay and Amal and Charulata take an interest in each other’s literary aspirations as well as in each other generally. The delicate pathos and subtle comedy of their romance is a joy, and there is wonderful audacity in the way Ray shows Charulata’s life at the beginning while simply looking out of the window, studying the passersby with the engaged curiosity of a true artist. This film is a boost for the mind and heart.

Write Club Saturday General #201Meeting
Write Club Hyderabad helps you pen your thoughts, spill your mind and finally make an appointment with the writer in your head. We conduct free, weekly events that foster writing. Our Meetups aim at helping writers reach their goals in a supportive, collaborative, social setting. Writing doesn’t have to be all by oneself. We welcome anyone who writes, regardless of genre, language or age. We have members writing novels, short stories, poetry, screenplays, essays, school reports and more. What we do, basically: One of the members of Write Club (anyone with a participation count over 2 consecutive meetups) hosts a session. They bring forth a theme and writing exercises. We all then write to the host’s prompts and guidelines for about an hour. Once we’re done writing, we read out our write-ups (optional). We also exchange feedback and constructively critique each other’s works. Entry is free, anyone with an interest in writing can walk in. Bring your writing devices and we’re all set! We promise to provide you with good coffee and a super-creative conversation. We have Write Club sessions every Saturday afternoon – 3 to 6 PM
