Topi Ki Daastaan: A Story of Separation

Venue: Al Hamra, Aligarh Muslim University
Paegham in collaboration with Wings Cultural Society is presenting ‘Topi Ki Dastaan’ on
Saturday, October 13 at AMU, Aligarh.
‘Topi is Dastaan’ is based on a Hindi Novel ‘Topi Shukla’ by Dr Rahi Masoom Raza. The
Dastaan attempts to recreate the tumult between two friends ‘Topi’ and ‘Iffan’, studying at the
Aligarh Muslim University, and coming from, as their names suggest, the Hindu and Muslim
communities respectively. The performance attempts to recreate the friction between friends in
the aftermath of partition in 1947.

The novel has been adapted by director Tarique Hameed for stage production.
