The poolside of the ITC Kakatiya Sheraton is extremely scenic. Any place that slims your wallet dowm to half its size better be. Little Theater plans to add to this beauty with some heavy intellectual stimulation.
Little Theater will don on the role of royalty for an evening by reading excerpts of The Nocturnal Court, coupled with a poetry recitation in Urdu, renditions of Urdu ghazals with professional vocalists Mohd. Ruknuddin and Sangeeta Mitra, and a performance of the Thumri.
The Noctural Court is a translation of the Urdu 'Darbaar-e-Durbaar', written by Sidq Jaisi. This is an account of the court of Prince Maozzamjah. Prince Maozzamjah was the second son of the 7th Nizam, and his court was held only at night. Talk about a classy night life, we Hyderabadis had it even back then!
Sidq Jaisi was a court poet of the Prince. This book is perhaps the only document of contemporary Hyderabad in the decade immediately preceeding the demise of the old order. It shows high society in the light of the last flicker of the flame. It is a picture of the Age, the feudal system and its grandeur. The book describes the sycophancies intrigued, the atmosphere of the court and the empty chatter of the courtiers.
