Rangmanch Utsav witnessed some very entertaining plays including Sitaaron ke Paas – Kalpana Chawla, Andha Yug, a stage adaptation of Animal Farm and Nastik Shaheed.

Nastik Shaheed based on the life and times of India’s gallant revolutionary Bhagat Singh opened the festival under the direction of Ravi Taneja.

This was followed by the stage adaptation of the George Orwell’s Animal Farm. The play based on the story was written by Peter Hall and dramatized by Satyabrat Rout and Kuldeep Kunal.

The daughter of Karnal, the pride of both India and America and NASA’s martyr – Kalpana Chawla lived and died her dream. Her story was relived through the endearing play Sitaaron Ke Paas – Kalpana Chawala, a play written by Nigam Prakash and directed by Sushma Seth.

The festival ended with Andha Yug, a depiction of the last days of the Mahabharata from the point of view of the few surviving members of the Pandava-Kaurava clan and the despair of loss and death brought in by a brutal war. The play was written by Dharamveer Bharti and directed by Sanjeev Kant.
