The earthy kalaam of 16th-century Sufi faqeer and poet Shah Hussain, popularly known as Madho Lal Hussain, is an inseparable part of Punjab's soil and consciousness His unequivocal abdication of all kinds of high-sounding titles has assigned him the spot of ‘faqeer nimaana’ (the lowly faqeer) in our hearts.

Immerse yourself in the poetic genius's timeless wisdom in the latest captivating spectacle under the Haroof Baithak series. Imbued with an insatiable longing, his verses offer deep insights into the eternal mysteries of love, death, desire, and sublimation. Surrender to this sufi magic as Vocalist, Composer, and Narrator Radhika Sood breathes life into his deceptively simple and astonishingly relevant 'kaafis' (poems), accompanied by Neil Mukherjee on Guitar and Vinayak Netke on Tabla.

Join us as we recreate the festival of lamps, celebrating the revered poet-saint’s enduring legacy with a confluence of poetry, woven with music and narrative.
