Let's Dream With Eyes Open


This hour-long session begins with a poem in Hindi, composed by Haque, told from an old man’s perspective, about living in the moment. An African story about trust in a marriage follows. The next poem, also in Hindi, is a tragic love story, where Haque invites the audience to join in with singing the chorus line. An African story called ‘Roof of Leaves’, about a tribal couple, is next, followed by an English poem about love at an older age. The last story, a European one called ‘What Women Want’, is his favourite, ending with another poem in Hindi, called ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’.
