Annual Women’s Month Event Fest 2021

All through March, we are celebrating International Women’s Day (8th Mar) with Walks/Talks/Cultural Baithaks as part of the “जहान-ए-ज़न – World of Women” Event Series to re-discover stories and re-claim experiences that are an indelible testimony to the impact of women who have helped shape Indian society, in the past and continue to inspire us in the present…So join the fun!

Event #3 – Women & Goddesses of Indian Mythology – An Alternative Narrative!

LIMITED SPOTS, SO BOOK IN ADVANCE BY REGISTERING HERE 

In Indian mythology, stories of women are often the gender stereotypes which typically mirror society; with roles limited to the all-powerful ‘Shakti’ or ‘Devi’ or the benevolent mother goddess, the dutiful daughter or righteous wife, or many a times, the sly, evil temptress bent on bringing about the downfall of Gods or men. A small minority of contemporary worshippers admit that holy texts tend to glorify misogynistic and outdated beliefs.
But as the women of today derive strength from their trials, their devotion, their wisdom & competence, and even their form and sensuality, compelling us to celebrate all that women are, as they challenge the injustices & double standards of a patriarchal society, so are interwoven among those cultural mythologies of yore, the lesser known tales of powerful feminine energies…of goddesses and women we don’t worship!

Join DelhiByFoot’s special speaker Rituraj Vasant Kumar, a film professional and puppeteer, who loves retelling stories from mythology as we traverse the vast ocean that is Indian mythology, invoking good thoughts & dialogue on “Women and Goddesses in Indian Mythology”, from the times of Vedas to the Ramayan till the Adi Guru!

A session of sit-down interactive story session as we weave a narrative around a few extraordinary women who fought for desire, equality and opportunity, to mend what they thought is right for themselves and hence for posterity.
A magical evening that will unfold next to the scenic Delhi icon, the Lotus Temple, as it stands bathed in the golden dusk of a crisp, March evening and shines in the pale white glow of the rising (almost!) full moon!

DATE & TIME: 27th MAR, SAT, 6:30PM-9:00PM

Inviting all literature lovers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts for an evening surrounded by the bold and beautiful words of sublimely gifted writers.

“तू हक़ीक़त भी है, दिलचस्प कहानी ही नहीं

अपनी तारीख़ का उन्वान बदलना है तुझे
उठ मिरी जान मिरे साथ ही चलना है तुझे”

  5. May I know the charge you taking is fid what? Since its on foot n everybody will be coming by their own means

    1. Hi Ayushi,
      Thanks for writing in with your concerns. We do not charge money for providing any travel mode to any participant.
      First let me explain what happens in a typical walk event we organise. People meet at a given point and then guided by us they embark on a short walking tour experience of 2-3 hours which covers a small specific theme/monument/cultural aspect of our city of Delhi. During this walk we share the historical facts of the monuments, then we recount interesting anecdotes about the people, both present and past and share our learnings about the cultural aspects of the city. Contsantly our team update ourselves with interesting trivia, stories and to do all this regularly, safely while maintaining a certain level of quantity is the reason why the money charged is for. I now hope it is clear to you and we will wish to see you, very soon on our walks…
      Thanks
