Limbo Makes You Ponder.
Stellar Cast Wins Hearts !
To commemorate the World Day Against the Death Penalty, Justice Project Pakistan (JPP), in collaboration with Olomopolo Media hosted an extremely heartwrenching play titled “Limbo” – A Dramatic Reading Of Letters of Prisoners on Death Row. The play was conceptualized by Kanwal Khoosat, with direction from Talha Mufti and sound design by Agha Haider. An intriguing performance which featured the likes of renowned artists such as Sarmad Khoosat, Samiya Mumtaz, Erfan Khoosat, and Hassan Wajid Baig. The emphasis was on narratives that society forgets, those that society wishes it did not have to remember or acknowledge. The performance primarily related to reading letters penned by the incarcerated inmates in Pakistan’s penal system. The letters are interspersed with passages from George Orwell’s essay, ‘A Hanging’, and regulations from the Pakistan Prisons Rules. The dramatic readings highlighted the dysfunction of Pakistan’s justice system – torture, false confessions, juvenile detention. A stellar night which left many to ponder indeed!
We are in dire need of optimistic and empowering content that highlights the strengths of women, especially daughters, and the many ways they are a positive influence on the world. The millennium has reached new highs and continues to progress, but most of our society refuses to budge from primitive, rigid mindsets and sees daughters as some sort of a burden on families. To counteract this belief and once again try and educate people on how biases like these only lead to dysfunctional families and individuals, we have the new drama serial Betiyaan. With Syed Mohammad Ahmed playing the role of a doting father we’d all love to have, the show aims to highlight how a father can be just as supportive of his daughters as most are of their sons. Looks promising!
Trust, by Hernan Diaz
A virtuoso performance by an emerging talent whose first novel was a finalist for the Pulitzer and PEN/Faulkner. Trust, longlisted for this year’s Booker Prize, is four books in one: a novel within a novel, a partial manuscript, a memoir, and a diary. Diaz’s spellbinding tale parses the truth of just what happened to a patrician Manhattan couple during the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression, and the role money played in all of it.
