Look beyond the theatre...

After a while, one was back at the familiar, quaint and relaxed surroundings of Prithvi Theatre.

The buzzing space continues to enthrall audiences with its brilliant mix of theatre and workshops, laced with cups of steaming, kadak chai along with their other favourites from the menu.

Prithvi Theatre offers something for every kind of culture buff

While you’re at it, don’t forget to drop by their bookstore — The Paperback. This tiny treasure trove is a collector’s delight. We are sure that over a thousand titles are showcased on its shelves — from collections of Hindi and English plays, short stories and novels to a bargain section, regional literature as well as eclectic reads that will please the indie reader and the mainstream literary junta.

Look out for rare publications (including Manto in English and Hindi) some of which you would not find in any other bookstore or book chain. Apart from this, DVDs of critically acclaimed films as well as documentaries on socio-political-cultural themes find space on its already-crammed shelves.
If you drop by tomorrow, don’t miss their Mehfil@Prithvi session, which is part of their Partners@Prithvi initiative. Get a chance to discover and celebrate the beauty and cultural history of Urdu’s greatest minds — Mir, Ghalib, Iqbal and Fiaz, in an informal set-up, with chai, of course.
