Group-Curio (Jaipur)

It is necessary to express our love!!! But how? Very terrible question is this because some people express their love openly, some silently. Some through eyes, some through communication, But what kind of love this was? Which was neither unwrapped nor secreted, it was neither in the eyes nor in the conversation. Thereafter it was there. Is this the reason why people called it flirt? Let's find out through the play.

Parsai Uvaach

Written by Harishankar Parsai

Directed by Tarun Dutt Pandey

Group-Nav Nritya Natya Sanstha (Bhopal)

It is better to influence someone than to be impressed by someone. Harishankar Parsai has done the same thing. His satirical characters are known around us and continue to influence our lives. The 04 Stories presented in the satire are similar from our everyday lives. Shavyatra ka toliya is a humorous play of a person who has taken part in 100 Funeral Processions for the benefit of virtue. In Another satire 'Madhyamvargiya kutta' Parsai Ji has described the agony of a person who is living in middle class Society. In Third Story ''vah Kya tha'' is the story of a person who living in the society and is also disconnected from the society. In Last story ''Baatuni'' the character of a person who has tested your patience by taking abundantly. It is difficult task to stage the satire of Parsai Ji but it becomes easier when it comes to the common Man. That's why a common man is presented by a common man for a comman man.

So, Sarjay Rao asked her to build a palace made of glass and that too without using any money from his side, in his absence. Although whatever he said was a part of joke, but his wife Janki took it seriously and wanted to fulfill the wishes of her husband. The character of Joravar and his Diwanji create some funny moments in his play. A husband-wife relationship is based on faith towards each other, if there is a tittle mistake then the life becomes hell for them. It is always the woman who is asked give the test of life. This play shows funny side of man-woman relationship.
