Mahmood Farooqui and Darain Shahidi Present Dastangoi at Jamia

Renowned Dastangoes Mahmood Farooqui and Darain Shahidi presented Dastangoi as part of the 94th Foundation Day Celebrations. Dastangoi is a 16th century oral story-telling art form which was revived in 2005 by Mahmood Farooqui along with his aides. The Dastangoi presentation that lasted for two hours mesmerized the audience with its eclecticism and narrative depth. One of the oral narratives presented pertained to the partition of India and its calamitous consequences.
