Lasya Kavya / Alarmel Valli

This film examines how a dancer can be a writer, poet, painter, sculptor, actor and singer even as she dances. In some ways, Lasya Kavya is also a film about the pathway to greatness. Alarmel Valli’s story is an illustration of the fact that greatness comes only to those who relentlessly polish the gift of an inborn talent.  Lasya Kavya – the world of Alarmel Valli is an invitation for all of us to come into her world.

Jhumpa Lahiri

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Jhumpa Lahiri launches her new novel, shortlisted for the 2013 Man-Booker Prize, at Southbank Centre.

Jhumpa Lahiri is the author of Interpreter of Maladies, The Namesake and Unaccustomed Earth. Her new novel The Lowland is epic in its canvas and intimate in its portrayal of lives undone and forged anew. It is a deeply felt story of family ties that entangle and fray in ways unforeseen and unrevealed, of ties that ineluctably define who we are.
