From the tapestry of her childhood to the grand stage of the Spoken Festival 2024, Tahira’s journey unfolds like a lyrical ode to the art of storytelling, where keen observations and innate storytelling prowess converge to create a heart-touching narrative.
The Spoken Festival of 2024 witnessed Tahira Kashyap Khurrana’s debut live performance. Tahira, the powerhouse behind literary gems like “12 Commandments of Being a Woman” and “7 Sins of Being a Mother,” has become synonymous with narratives that not only unravel the complexities of womanhood but also serve as a reflective mirror to societal conditioning.
Stepping into the spotlight, her words invited a huge round of applause from the audience, wherein she unraveled the intricacies of guilt woven into the fabric of a woman. Addressing the audience, Tahira shared, “There’s one word that describes us all and that one word is ‘GUILT,’ let’s just say that’s how we are built! The idea behind this small piece was to emphasize the importance of being kinder and forgiving to ourselves. Amidst the various roles we play daily, let’s not allow guilt to overwhelm us.”
Tahira is known for her highly relatable content across age groups, her words find home into the hearts and minds of audiences. Her Instagram series, “Stories in My Head,” and her debut film ‘Sharmajee Ki Beti,’ which was recently premiered at MAMI Film Festival, captivated hearts with their blend of humor and cheer, a testament to her ability to infuse everyday moments with profound significance.
