Sons of Babur, written by former External Affairs Minister of India Salman Khurshid, is set in the era of the Mughals. The play has been adapted by Ather Farouqui and is directed by Dr M Sayeed Alam. Ghalib in New Delhi, written and directed by Dr Alam, tells the story of the Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib, who comes back to modern day Delhi 200 years after his death to discover things are not how he left them.

Khurshid said Sons of Babur is relevant to the present scenario of India and the Indian subcontinent, where minorities are struggling with their past identities and an identity crisis. It is an attempt to explore the meaning of nationhood, and in particular relevance to India, said Khurshid, who was on a personal visit to the UAE recently. Meanwhile, ‘Ghalib in New Delhi’ has the great erstwhile Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib revisiting his beloved ‘Dehli’, now ironically ‘Delhi’, in 2017 to witness and relish his posthumous fame.
