All the World is a Stage: The Story of How the LSS Invigorated Ludhiana's Art and Culture

Front Cover
"This beautifully produced pictorial volume traces the journey of Ludhiana’s evolution in the field of performing arts – a journey that’s intrinsically woven into the weft and weave of the Ludhiana Sanskritik Samagam or the LSS.‘To create a world of art. A world of creative expressions.’This was the objective of the LSS when it began as a membership club. But what the LSS did to Ludhiana’s art and culture scene was something that even the founders did not envisage.Taking us behind the scenes, the authors Sunil Kant Munjal and S K Rai, reveal a gamut of experiences – some funny, some serious, some exceptional – but all human... as performers from various walks of life make the stage come alive in Ludhiana at the LSS.Read about how Jaya Bachchan brought drama to real life; Anupam Kher’s untold story; the dedication of the Shah family; the humility and warmth of Pandit Jasraj...This book is a must-read for art connoisseurs looking for insights into their favorite icons."
