About Speaking of the City

Bangalore’s World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Program sponsors a monthly curated talk called Speaking of the City, at Shoonya. Writers, artists, journalists, scholars, architects, scientists, entrepreneurs, historians, geographers, activists or anyone who has worked on Bangalore will be invited to speak of this city that we all inhabit.

The first talk in our lecture series, in July 2017, was with Ramachandra Guha, and was followed by a session with Vivek Shanbhag, both of which pulled in big crowds. Sugata Srinivasaraju thrilled us in October with his thoughts on growing up in the city and how it has affected his views on writing – and his work as an editor, translator, and top journalist. The fourth talk featured internationally bestselling and critically-acclaimed Lavanya Sankaran, who shared her thoughts with us in an exclusive event. In the fifth, popular history author Maya Jayapal evoked the nostalgic confluences that make Bangalore the city it is. Sixth, was with none other than Anita Nair – on the 25th of February. Seventh was with award-winning journalist Vikhar Ahmed Sayeed, next with urbanist and architect Naresh Narasimhan and last with acclaimed film lyricist and poet Jayant Kaikini.
