Under the Mangosteen Tree - 100 Years of Basheer

A festival celebrating the legendary Malayalam writer Vaikom Muhammad Basheer (1908 – 1994), in Chennai, January 2008. Basheer was a universally loved and admired Malayalam novelist and short story writer. A gifted raconteur, he drew people from all walks of life to the Mangosteen tree in his house in Beypore, Calicut, where he spent the latter part of his life. Over three weeks, in different venues in the city, we will be presenting two plays, a fun grand mela, a music concert, a photo exhibition, food festival, a writer’s symposium and film screenings, celebrating the magic of Basheer.
