Qissebaazi’ is the Multilingual Storytelling Project of The Hoshruba Repertory. Qissebaazi expands and builds upon traditional storytelling. A multilingual platform with multiple performers, it is theatrical in presentation but still, distinctively, storytelling.

Each story is performed in two languages- one the core language of the text, and the other a bridge language. We hope you enjoy both the cadence of the original language and access the content through bridge language.


Celebrating Creativity

Keeping in mind the objective of Adab Foundation. In the second edition of the festival, a new format was adopted inviting some of India’s leading literary critics to nominate books and films. The nominated books were then discussed, debated, critiqued, read aloud, enacted and celebrated the way excellent books truly should. The festival is committed to celebrating books, music, art and films, with some of the nation’s finest creative minds in attendance.

To promote literature and a love for reading among Chandigarh’s children and youth, Adab Foundation organized the Children’s Chandigarh literature festival in the years 2014 and 2015.
