ABOUT “NOW”

“Now” is an association of artists based in Mumbai which include actors, directors, musicians, dancers, writers etc. The basic concept behind putting the name of the group “Now” is that we believe that an artist always has something to say, something to express, but most of the time the idea remains in his head or reaches his friends. We under “Now” propagate and support these kinds of people, to take up the challenge of realizing their ideas in the form of a project NOW whether it is a film or a theater performance or a musical night, anything which can be delivered in front of an audience.

ABOUT THE PLAYS

We have recently produced two plays; one is “A/126, Vrindavan Garden”, written and directed by Vinay Sharma and the other is “a b j”, directed by Shashi Bhushan which is an adaptation of the short story “Bade Bhaisahab” by the celebrated author Shri Munshi Premchand,.

Ashy Prinia (Prinia socialis)

The Ashy Prinia or Ashy Wren-Warbler (Prinia socialis) is a small warbler. This prinia is a resident breeder in the Indian Subcontinent, ranging across most of India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and western Myanmar. It is a common bird in urban gardens and farmland in many parts of India and its small size, distinctive colours and upright tail make it easy to identify. The northern populations have a rufous rump and back and have a distinct breeding and non-breeding plumage while other populations lack such variation.
