A fundraiser for Covid relief for India on Saturday 22 May, 2-4.30 pm BST/ 6.30-9 pm IST
“Sab Yaad Rakha Jayega. Everything will be remembered.” — Aamir Aziz
The second wave of COVID-19 is wreaking devastation and chaos in India, ahead of the predicted impact on the wider sub-continent. With a right-wing nationalist government in flight from reality, mutual aid and collaboration have never been more necessary.
On Saturday 22 May, join poets, writers and artists in solidarity, in grief and in love with the people of India. With Aamer Aziz, Vahni Capildeo, Meena Kandasamy, Bhanu Kapil, Ashwani Kumar, Pratyusha, Nat Raha, Nisha Ramayya, Kashif Sharma Patel, Himali Singh Soin, Bisakh Som, Amia Srinivasan and Preti Taneja.
This is a list of books by the readers that are available to purchase on Bookshop.org. All commission fees will be donated along with ticket sales on a rolling basis to a range of community-based, mutual aid initiatives based on regularly updated guidance from organisers and mutual aid workers in India so that the funds reach those most in need.
