Remembering Musi’s flood wrath

To commemorate the 110th year since the Musi flood which still has a lot of effect on the minds of people in the old city as almost every family is recovering from the loss in one way or the other, Kalakriti Art Gallery in collaboration with the Kalakriti Archives and the Krishnakriti Foundation presented a series of events on Friday. The day started with a heritage walk in the old city, led by Sirisha Indukuri, where 23 participants visited Purana Pul Dawzara, Miya Mishk Mosque and Old Shiva temple and relived the heritage. Elaborating about the whole initiative, Prshant Lahoti, Managing Trustee, Krishnakriti Foundation, says, “Heritage is not just in our monuments and historical artefacts but in everyday experiences, and memories and that’s the reason we came up with this initiative.”

Later in the evening, the inauguration of the exhibition of original photographs of the 1908 flood from the collection of Kalakriti Archives was held which included a selection of rare archival images produced by W. R. Puplikc and Co between 1908-09. “This is a rare opportunity to view a set of photographs from over a hundred years ago. The aesthetic, and technical brilliance is at par with the detailed content captured in these rare historical moments. This is a unique experience for everyone interested in the history of Hyderabad,” shares Abeer Gupta, director, Krishnakriti Foundation.





The guests in the evening also got the opportunity to know a bit more about the floods from noted historian Sajjad Shahid who gave a talk on ‘Memories of the Flood’, which was followed by folk music performances about the flood, in the Musi River, moderated by Dr Anand Raj Varma. The performances included a Phaag performed by Ramnayan Mandali from Hussaini Alam and a Lavni by

Shri Parashar from Begum Bazar. Musharraf Farooqui, Zonal Commissioner, Charminar Pedestrianisation Project was seen gracing the event as the chief guest.
