Akkad Bakkad

By Posham Pa
Akkad Bakkad is a podcast initiative of the Hindi literary platform, Posham Pa, to venture into different forms of art and discuss their impact.

It is conceptualized as a series where we will read books together, see films together and then sit together to share what we feel about them—the overall experience of that art form, the emotions it succeeded or failed to invoke, the craft employed, and its location within progressive politics.

The literature we explore will range from stories, plays, novels, poetry to films and series.

Connect with us and share what YOU felt about these.

Movies: Paterson (2016)
Jim Jarmusch's 'Paterson' is the story of a man who is a bus driver, a poet and also a part of the imaginative universe of his own favourite poet. In telling the story of this man, the film sometimes becomes a canvas painted in a hundred colours and sometimes a poem adorned with a hundred metaphors.    What impact did the poetic tones of the film have on Sahej, Puneet and Anand Priya—listen from them in the fourth conversation of 'Akkad-Bakkad'.  Let us know what other films on poetry/literature we can watch.

Stories: Discussing the 'Middle Class' through three Hindi stories
What is the 'middle class'? What are its moralities, hypocrisies, inconsistencies?  We explore these questions as we discuss three Hindi stories— 'Kutte Ki Poonchh' by Yashpal, 'Dilli Mein Ek Maut' by Kamleshwar and 'Traas' by Bhishm Sahni. These stories reflect different qualities of people constituting the middle class and bring out interesting nuances. Tune in the discussion and share your thoughts with us!
