1/ "When Will We Meet Again?" / A prelude film by Shabnam Virmani


An invocation of present & its many turmoils & a gentle step sideways into a new ‘ajab’ dimension where we can meet the stranger who lives within & reach out to Other who was pushed apart.
2/ Ajab Mulakaatein is an attempt by the Kabir Project and our friends to travel and meet in wondrous ways despite the odds of the pandemic and its many lockdowns. Stumbling through virtual roadblocks, breaching borders and creating new digital intimacies on Zoom, 👇🏽
3/ we connected with diverse folk musicians of Kutch, Malwa, Rajasthan and Sindh to once again listen and share the gift of conversations and songs from the oral traditions.

As we share these films with you in the spirit of finding solace and strength, 👇🏽
4/ we urge you to support the folk artists. The funds raised will be equally shared with the artists we recorded with during lockdown.

1 - How to calm a disturbed mind mind?
A beautiful story - Gautama Buddha & Disciple.

Once Buddha was traveling with his disciples. They happened to pass a lake that supplied water to the nearby villages. It was a hot day and Buddha was thirsty

Thread 👇🏽
2 - he sent one of his disciples to fetch water from the lake. When the disciple reached the lake, he noticed that the water had become very muddy since a bullock cart has just crossed the lake. Finding the water unfit for consumption 👇🏽
3 - he walked back and suggested to Buddha to move to the next available water body. Surprisingly, Buddha asked the group to stay put and asked the same disciple to fetch water from the same lake in an hour. The disciple obediently went back after an hour. 👇🏽

1- Main Jaanu Mera Khuda Jaane 🙏🏽

Dear men - You have no right ask anyone questions that God has to ask & you have no right to behave as advocate of God when God claims to be closest to human & live within him.

I came back to twitter for #Amarjaleel - Let me express in thread Image
2- A real religious man has no claim, he judges nobody but only himself & his words will spread harmony not noise. Only a miserable man will try to take charge of God, judge others, put people in trouble without realising he is nobody but just a ripple in the water. #AmarJaleel
3- I read posts against #AmarJaleel & now its becoming threats to his life & his family - You can disagree to him but you have no right to trigger others and be part of a propaganda. Amar Jaleel is the lover of humanity & have always wrote & spoke for a betterment. #AmarJaleel
