‘Being born a Hindu, I have a responsibility to tell the story of Muslims’

I came across a musical Daastangoi performance, ‘Jo Dooba So Paar’, by chance. And it showed me how the arts can bring people together. It’s much needed, especially in these times of great social fissures. The show embodied the message of harmony that the intertwined lives of Nizamuddin Auliya and Amir Khusrau delivered and reminded us that communities across the world are in need of something to bring them together as a unified society. All Indians Matter speaks to Ajitesh Gupta, lead and co-director of the show. The conversation crackled; don’t miss it.

As women travellers leave scathing reviews and horrifying news reports of sexual assaults appear with alarming regularity, tourism numbers are not reviving in India. The UN World Tourism Organisation reported a 90% recovery for international tourism in 2023 compared to pre-COVID 2019. For India, it’s under 75%, according to the Bureau of Immigration figures.
