Umesh Kabir

Act Name - सुनो भाई साधो (Says Kabir, ‘Listen O wise one and practise what you hear!’)

About the Act: 
In this act, Umesh Kabir will try to demystify Kabir's philosophy by delving into the mind of the mystic. He will dwell on Kabir’s witty wisdom, his secular and religious tolerances, how he opposed superstition, meaningless rituals and bigotry through his couplets. He will talk about his philosophy and its relevance in the modern era.
Kabir’s couplets are daring, bold and fearless and subtly point out the lack of communal harmony and religious hypocrisy of society.
