A revolution stayed on the Earth for 85 long years in disguise of Habib Tanvir, the most respected theatre personality. That revolution vulcanised several minds and won over numerous hearts. Agra Bazaar, Charandas Chor, Gaon ka Naam Sasural, Mor Naam Damad and Ponga Pandit etc were his thoughts.
He was ornamented by Sangeet Natak Academy (1969), Padma Shri (1983), Kalidas Samman (1990), Sangeet Natak Academy Fellowship (1996) and the Padma Bhushan (2002). He was also nominated as a Member of Rajya Sabha (1972-1978).
On June 8th 2009, he left for the heavenly abode. He has left us with his precious ideas. Now it is our duty and responsibility to disseminate his message even further and farther. His presence would be felt until the eternity. We pay homage to Habib Tanvir on his 86th birth anniversary.
Homage to a revolution called 'Habib Tanvir'.

Badal Sircar’s Ant Nahi (1969) forces us to come face to face with those questions which we brush aside while ascending the steps to success. Sumant, who is one of us, having reached the zenith of success is battered with these subdued questions. The play teaches us how to interrogate one along these questions. Sumant meets those characters from his life who have shaped his personality as well as his creative potential. He comes face to face with his mother, lover, professor, friend, employer, and companion. He tries to negotiate with each of the accusations framed by them. The play however not only shows a man standing at the juncture of achievement and failure but also finds that his poetic endeavors are challenged and addressed by those who fight the war of survival everyday and then pass into oblivion. Thus he explores a new meaning of life with a definite purpose for his own Being. In this process, Sumant becomes simultaneously a convict, lawyer, judge and spectator unto himself. There is seemingly no end to this tussle between success and compromise.
