    Art, poetry and legend offer opportunities to express the forbidden. Even today.

    Forbidden Love: The Love Legends of Southasia explores the traditional and contemporary celebration of four famous love legends of Punjab, in the backdrop of increasingly rigid and intolerant Southasian societies. To talk about issues of love and what is taboo – traditionally and in modern day, a series of stimulating reach-out programmes such as workshops and facilitated discussions using multi-media tools were developed. All together, over ten workshops were held in India and Pakistan. .

    LOVE AND LONGING IN AMRITSAR
    We bring you here works created by students from one such workshop. A couple of these works were shared in an earlier blog here. This workshop was held in the women-only BBK DAV College in Amritsar, and facilitated by Daljit Ami, our Chandigarh-based researcher. Students shared their experiences about gender discrimination and some students were of the opinion that contemporary women were being presented through these love legends, as social norms are similar even today. The students used the blank canvases on the walls and charts to express their ideas of love and the clay pitchers that were installed for the workshop. The resultants were diverse expressions of art forms like illustrations, paintings and poems. Indeed, when love legends are adapted through different art expressions, women in today’s Punjab seem to be negotiating their personal and social spaces through these narratives.
