#HistoryOnAPlate Lecture Series


Barkha Bahar Aayee with Salma Husain



Celebrate the Magical Indian Monsoon, as Mughal Hindustan would. This talk - unlike the earlier ones with Salma Aapa - won't stay within the precinct of the Mughal dastarkhwan. It will, like un-shackled July foliage, make forays into spaces such as festivals, fables, even food that Ayurveda cautions us to avoid at this time of the year, more an understanding (or celebration) of Mughal Hindustan and how it would blossom into a spectacle of dance, song, and picnics, and love, come the pitter-patter of the rain. If you, like us, are a lover of the rains, give yourself in to this romance. Salma Aapa, in her characteristic poetic rendition, would like your audience this Saturday at 5pm. Brew a cup of coffee, or tea, take a deep whiff of it - while it hoap-fully pitter-patters outside, and join us.


(This talk shall be conducted on Google Meets, and will be recorded,

and a link to the recording will be shared with all participants.)


The #HistoryOnA Plate Monthly Lecture-Series is a platform to support quality research on Indian Food, and bring it to an audience via weekend lectures with researchers, writers, scholars, chefs, and those besotted by the incredible behemoth that is the culinary culture of India.

We change a basic fee (the price of a cup of coffee and a sandwich at your favourite coffee shop) for these lectures to enable us to support our resource persons in their work.

A small percentage of the proceeds from each lecture also support the work of our non-profit, Kalap Trust, in the Tons Valley of Uttarakhand.

The tickets are priced at Rs. 511 each, and there are 50 tickets available for each talk. Click on the link below to purchase the tickets.
