A Special Enactment of the play, “Khamosh Adalat Jaari Hai” written by Vijay Tendulkar, directed by Mr. Sandeep Mahajan and performed by the students of present Acting Department is being held at Indian Film & Television Institute, at Meerut on 21st & 22nd July, at 3:30 pm sharp.
The story is a drama-within-the-drama, which reveals the agonised world of a young school teacher who is humiliated and insulted. Deceived by two lovers with whom she has brief but passionate affairs, she is desperate to lead a respectable life. The play indicts a male-dominated society, reflecting a feminist viewpoint. Its intricate artistry is reflected in the dialectical unity between its form and content. At another level it deals with the mask and the real face and the relationship of art to life.
After successful enactments of plays in the past like, “ Gadhe Ki Baraat”, “Adhe Adhure” and “Bade Bhaisaheb”, the theater group of Acting Department, BAHURANG is poised to present its fourth play.
IFTI always endeavours to encourage the students of various departments to perform and participate in live events and projects which provides them a good platform to hone their skills.
BAHURANG group is one such endeavour which gives the opportunity for the students of Acting, to showcase their learning through classical plays under veterans like K.Paintal and Sandeep Mahajan. The music of the play is given by the faculty of Singing deptt, Javed, Zeshan and Vilayat Khan.

With the sudden passing away of Jagjit Singh, the Ghazal maestro today in the morning, Indian music, in particular Ghazals have been orphaned. The singular contribution of Jagjit Singh was to democratize Ghazals, and make it acceptable to the general public. He was the first Ghazal singer who moved the rendition of Ghazals away from its reliance on classical instruments, to be arranged henceforth with a mixture of English instruments like a guitar, a violin, a bongo, and by infusing such instruments he made its acceptability far and wide.
With his sad demise, his loss would be difficult to fill, but his fans would ensure that he continues to be in the memory for all times to come.
To pay a heartfelt TRIBUTE to Padma Bhushan Sri Jagjit Singh, the Singing Department of IFTI, Meerut, has organised a Ghazal Show with performance of some chosen Ghazals of the maestro sung by the faculty and students at 3:30 pm, at the institute’s amphitheater, Box Office.
