Ranga Shankara presents Kannada Play “Beediyolagondu Maneya Madi”
Directed by Mohit Takalkar
‘Beediyolagondu Maneya Maadi’ in a satirical and a humorous vein comments on the degenerating nature of religious festivals and disproves traditional dogma in a realistic setting. The occasion is the much celebrated Ganesh Chathurti right in the thick of Pune’s middle-class, Maharashtrain-Brahmin dominated locality where the protagonist, Shreepad and his wife Sukanya have come to an agreement that every alternate year the razzmatazz of the Ganesh Chathurti will not disturb the sanctity of their home which in simple terms mean, no celebrating the festival and not even allowing its slightest sound or whiff to penetrate their house.
Despite Sukanya’s minor complaints all seems to go well until Shreepad’s old aunt, her son and daughter-in-law unexpectedly turn up with their infant son with the solitary intent of watching the procession. The aunts voracious desire to witness the procession and Shreepad’s staunch refusal to allow her to do so sets the tone of this humorous and remarkably pertinent play. As aunt and nephew take turns to explain each others situation with the aunt often scheming with the others to sneakily see the procession, the plot thickens.
Shreepad’s logical, reflective and philosophical rationalizations are balanced by the more immediate necessity of the situation that is both habit and religion driven. The processions approaching tenacity becomes a barometer for the muted tension that the characters begin to reel under and resonate the fallacious arguments of the brigade. The play also successfully evokes the mores of a middle-class, Kannada household as everybody await the final outcome of the battle of ideologies.

English Play by Tanariri Theatres
Playwright: Badal Sircar (Translation by Girish Karnad)
Director: Vijay S.
In “Evam Indrajit,” Badal Sircar’s abstract, semi-autobiographical play, a writer, who feels tortured by the need for creative expression in an undramatic world, tries to create a play with the audacious character, Indrajit, who “sees life realistically and dreams about it romantically.” His muse, Manasi, remains elusive, and the characters that he summons are mundane and undramatic, no different from the people around him.
Indrajit, created in the image of the writer himself, stands outside routine existence. Failing in his attempts at tying Indrajit to a plot, the writer faces a nightmarish writer’s block that pushes him into a moment of literary crisis. As he grapples with the existential crisis of Indrajit, we are presented at once with a macroscopic view of our own life, in which everything seems to be stuck in a repetitive loop, without purpose, without essence.
“Evam Indrajit” is a timeless play that analyzes the question of identity, of the essence of life, against an apparently meaningless, existentialist backdrop. The audacious assertion of one’s identity, one’s essence, is what differentiates life from mere existence, random collections of particles of matter going round and round.
