SAHITYA KALA SAMPADA, in association with BHARATIYA VIDYA BHAVAN KALA KENDRA, has been holding art-culture-literature oriented entertaining programmes (in Gujarati), once a month, since September 2015. These monthly programmes are held on morning of every 3rd Sunday at Bhavan’s air-conditioned auditorium at Chowpatty, Mumbai. These are ticketed programmes but with admission rates being very very low (highest being Rs. 100 or 80, against regular Rs. 500/400).
The details of 12 programmes staged during the first year, will give an idea of the diversity of the subjects touched upon under this series:

September 2015 RAAS DULARI Musical presentation of one of the most popular dance-dramas staged by Bhavan six decades ago, with lyrics and music by legendary Avinash Vyas.
October 2015 LAUGHTER CLINIC The title says it all. The programme was presented by Dr. Raish Maniyar, well known Shayar from Surat and Dr. Shyamal Munshi, reputed singer from Ahmedabad.
November 2015 SHAHBUDDIN RATHOD A hilarious one-man show by the celebrated performing humorist from Gujarat.
December 2015 JAY VASAVADA A lecture by the widely read columnist and widely heard orator.
January 2016 BE KHOBA ZAKAL A musical show featuring songs penned by Maha Kavi Nanalal and Rashtra Shayar Zaverchand Meghani.
February 2016 DIVAN-E-KHAAS A musical show featuring Gujarati Gazals.
March 2016 SIDDHARTH RANDERIA A talk show with Gujarati theatre’s currently most popular actor-director.
April 2016 DIL NI JABAAN MA A unique mushaira in which few Gujarati Shayars presented their Gujarati and Urdu ghazals.
May 2016 MOUSAM MARI TU J Remembering Harindra Dave. Leading singers rendered his songs, while prominent artistes enacted portions from his novel and articles.
June 2016 GNANPEETH SANMANPEETH Celebrating 4 Gujarati Gnanpeeth Puraskar winners.
July 2016 DARIYALAL A musical and narrative adaption of Gunavantrai Acharaya’s famous novel ‘Dariyalal’ with a talk on his immense contribution in the field of Gujarati Sagar-sahitya.
August 2016 ANAND TARANG Staging of 7 skits adapted from humorous narrations written by the great humorist Jyotindra Dave.

A large number of prominent personalities from Theatre/Music/Literature fields (Mumbai and Gujarat) participated in these programmes, which went a long way in making the events exceptionally successful. We are grateful to them.

Inspite of it being a Sunday morning event (which is not a preferred time for Gujarati audience), the response is tremendous.

Ticket rates being abnormally low, every show incurs a financial loss. While the same is being taken care of by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, we have been getting support by way of donations (Rs. 11000/- to Rs. 51000/-) from well-wishers and also from members of the audience, who appreciate our efforts. We are extremely thankful to them.
