Sukoon milta hai do lafz kaagaz par utaar kar, Cheekh bhi leta hun aur aawaz bhi nahi hoti.
Piyush Mishra isn’t just a name from the Bollywood Industry. He’s a name awed by the Delhi Theater Arena, a beautiful lyricist, a music director, singer, actor, scriptwriter. He wears many hats and has excelled in every field of his interest, he’s an undeniable genius for arts and creativity. His interviews often describe him as ‘a recluse’ and ‘a man who doesn’t easily mince words’.
He wrote and directed several plays as a part of Act One Theatre Group, including the acclaimed play, Gagan Damama Bajiyo (The Sky Resounds with the Call to Arms), based on freedom fighter Bhagat Singh which was first performed in 1994, and upon publishing, sold its first edition in just seven days. He did his film debut with Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se in 1998. He continued to stun us by taking up strong roles in every movie that he acted – Maqbool, Gangs of Wasseypur, Tamasha, PINK and so on.
He wrote his first poem when he was in 8th grade. There’s something about the vices of Piyush Mishra, just like his poetry, that draws us to his work and his being.
On the occasion of Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s Birth Anniversary, the Cultural Council of Delhi University’s Shaheed Bhagat Singh College (M) presents a guest lecture by Piyush Mishra on 28th September, 11 AM. The campus waits for the legend to celebrate the morning with poems, songs and dialogue.
