REVIEW FOR AN ASSASSIN SPEAKS - HINDI PLAY BY SUTRADHAR
Sutradhar is presenting a Hindi play on Nathuram Godse, "An Assassin Speaks", on 13th March at the La Makaan. A solo play directed by Vinay Verma, the play shows the other side of history from an assassin's point of view.
The play deals with the reasons that compelled Nathuram Godse to assassinate a man as revered as Mahatma Gandhi, despite him acknowledging the latter as the Father of the Nation. Was Nathuram Godse really a maniac, a criminal? Or was he someone who felt very strongly about Indian oneness? Was he a fanatic, or was he an educated, well-read, cultured individual for whom the partition of India was quite unnecessary?
The script throws light on some unknown facets of Indian history which are thought provoking - How much was Gandhiji's principle of Ahimsa or non-violence practicable in a battle-field, and did he have a common definition when communal riots broke out? Why did Nathuram Godse not allow his ashes to be immersed, and what did he want the posterity to do with it? Why did he not appeal against his death sentence?
The play starts at 7:30pm and its duration is 45 minutes. Entry tickets are priced at Rs. 100 per head. Please contact Vinay Verma at 98480-52541 for further details.
