The three-day Krishnakriti Festival of Art and Culture was concluded recently in the city with a grand finale. As part of it, a programme titled ‘Weaver of Dreams-The Passion of Muzaffar Ali of Kotwara’ was organised at Qutab Shahi Tombs. The Saturday night did not deter the enthusiasts and lovers of soulful music and colourful renditions that came along with mesmerising cinematic excellence.

‘Weaver of Dreams-The Passion of Muzaffar Ali of Kotwara’, was a multi-media spectacle that blended textile history, film, dance and storytelling into a rare art form and kept the large audience spellbound. It was a delightful evening and the ambiance added verve to the performances.

The exciting part of the evening was the presence of the multifaceted Rajah Muzaffar Ali, whose versatility stretches to designing, poetry, music and makes him a revivalist. His lineage goes back to the Muslim Rajput royal house of Kotwara.

The other attraction of the evening were Sathya Saran, eminent journalist, and biographer, whose ‘Ten Years with Guru Dutt: Abrar Alvi's Journey’ remains a critically acclaimed bestselling biography.

A touching moment came when Muzaffar Ali displayed the uniquely alluring Pochampally textiles. Incidentally, he is right now busy with ‘Dastaan e Dastaar’, a well-researched documentary that dwells deep into the origins and evolution of Indian textiles that have stood the test of time and captured the hearts of millions of people around the world. A choreographed display of textiles designed by the acclaimed Joseph Sundar marked the perfect icing on the cake.

BV Papa Rao, Adviser to Telangana Government, Jayesh Ranjan, IT Secretary, felicitated Muzaffar Ali and Sathya Saran to loud applause.

The artists presented their perfect performances that enthralled all those present on the occasion while the celebrities appreciated the organisers for presenting such a delightful show.
