The Theatre of Ultimate Liberation

The Akhara is a series of conversations with wondrous minds. Curated by storyteller, singer and playwright Sharada Eswar, Akhara is a coming together for social warmth, conviviality and lighthearted cultural and intellectual discussions that inspire and stimulate one’s thinking. It incorporates everything – singing, dancing, storytelling… and food!

This is the second of the virtual series and will take place on Friday June 3 2022, 5:30pm ET. Participation is free but requires registration.

The event will begin with an online Rasoi (communal cooking) curated by Sharada Eswar and hosted by Ronica Sajnani where the discussion will be around the significance of the communal meal and the cultural tradition of the Akhara.

We will cook a simple, vegan Lemon Rasam (a South Indian soup, deliciously light with many health benefits). If you would like to cook along (virtually of course!), a limited number of complimentary food kits are available(on a first come…basis) for anyone residing in the GTA. Please indicate below if you would like to receive a food kit. We will reach out to participants for delivery addresses in a follow-up email. Should you wish to assemble the ingredients yourself, we will also email the recipe to all registered participants.
