EK BAAR KI BAAT HAI: Ismat Chughtai, Harishankar Parsai & Patras Bokhari

Solo Performances of Short Stories

‘CHUIMUI’

She is on the train to Delhi and is carrying the most precious cargo herself. Her future is in her womb – literally & figuratively. This is the third pregnancy & this time she must deliver!

Enacted by Shashwita Sharma

 

Ismat Chughtai (21 July 1915 – 25 October 1991), one of India’s most accomplished fiction writers, epitomised the 20th-century women writers of Urdu: enlightened, bold, iconoclastic, progressive and feminist. Chughtai’s flowing and spontaneous style, occasionally peppered with satirical or witty remarks, makes reading a delight.

 

‘EK GAU BHAKT SE BHENT’

Meet Swami Ji, a die-hard Gau Bhakt! Get enlightened as the holy man extols the virtues of the holy cow and explains what the beef is all about.

Enacted by Rajesh Kumar

 

Harishankar Parsai (22 August 1924 – 10 August 1995) was known for his bold, satirical revelations, leaving no stone unturned to expose the murky moss of the society we live in. Casteists or politicians, bureaucrats or manipulators, none escape the scathing commentary of Parsai.

 

‘MARHOOM KI YAAD MEIN’

Celebrate Friendship! You know with that friend who’s always there for you? The rain or shine, I’ll always be there for you type! Well then, my friend, why have enemies when you have such friends!

Enacted by KC Shankar

 

Patras Bokhari (1 October 1898 – 5 December 1958) was an Urdu humorist, educator, essayist, broadcaster and diplomat from Pakistan. In addition he translated into Urdu the works of Shakespeare, Bertrand Russell, Bernard Shaw, R.L. Stevenson, Oscar Wilde, Anatole France and Bergson.

EK BAAR KI BAAT HAI: Rajinder Singh Bedi, Harishankar Parsai & Patras Bokhari

Solo Performances of Short Stories

 

‘CHECHAK KE DAAG’
A beautiful bride-to-be sees the groom for the first time on her wedding day. Her dreams turn into a nightmare; the prince’s face is not so charming. Is beauty in the eyes of the beholder?
Enacted by Shashwita Sharma


Rajinder Singh Bedi (1 September 1915 – 11 November 1984) wrote of lives that were commonplace but hidden in their very ordinariness, the human spirit shone through in all its lustre and brilliance. His gift for finding the inner meaning in outer reality, took Bedi into the realms of suggestion, symbolism, metaphor & allusion.
