Tale of a storyteller: Dastango Ankit Chadha remembered
| Monday | 13th May, 2019
The person behind the artist emerged when the two storytellers shared their memories of Chadha and experiences of watching him perform.
Instead, an evening of performance poetry and stories was dedicated to the memory of Ankit Chadha, who drowned in Uksan Lake near Kamshet on May 9 last year.
“It was at Sabarmati Ashram that Ankit turned vegetarian,” she recounted, giving the audience a glimpse of the person behind the artist.
The event, said the storytellers, was “only the beginning” because they were planning more work in order to keep Ankit’s legacy alive.
At 30, Chadha had become one of the most well-known names in the art form and lectured and performed at universities such as Yale and Harvard.
