Repeating History on Delhi stage

Repeating History on Delhi stage
Organised by Films andTheatre Society, the two plays gearing up to put some impressive shows are Arjun Ka Beta and Draupadi.

The play Arjun Ka Beta is a poetic rendition of a conversation between king Yudhisthira and the great warrior Bheeshama (Son of Ganga). It is a word-to-word description of the bravado of great Abhimanyu given to Bheeshma by Yudhishtira who also shares his inability to face Arjun who would soon be coming back from the battlefield and ask for his son.

This one hour 20 minutes Hindi play subtly shows the various philosophies of a ‘chakravyuh’ which hold good in the lives of all of us.

The next in line is Draupadi which takes excerpts from the story of Draupadi as known to everybody and adds to it some imaginative sequences to bring out the real essence of association between Draupadi and today’s women. This juxtaposing makes this work fit to be called an imaginative re-telling of certain chapters from Draupadi’s life. Head over for an interesting history lesson this weekend.
