Four friends from four different parts of India , for their love for music, poetry and story telling come together in Bangalore for a Musical Narrative on Hazrat Amir Khusrau. This musical narrative explores the relationship between Amir Khusrau, the 13th century Sufi poet from India, and his spiritual master Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya.

Ankit Chadha, a Delhi-based storyteller, has been working with Mahmood Farooqui to revive Dastangoi since 2010. His writing varies from biographical accounts of Sufi poets like Amir Khusrau and Kabir to modern adaptations of folk tales passed through oral tradition. His first book for children, the national award winning “My Gandhi Story”, has been published by Tulika. Ankit has written the script for this Musical Narrative.
