Dowry, child labour, illiteracy, communal conflict and many more deeply damaging social ills that inhibit the awakening of India into the heaven Rabindranath Tagore spoke about in his poem – these are the theme of the latest Annual Inter – School And Inter – Collegiate Theatre Festival organised by Koshish Theatre Group at Indira Priyadarshini.
The Koshish Group was formed in 1999 and is affiliated to COVA. It promotes awareness of social issues like those we spoke about, mostly through street plays. So far it has carried out more than 1500 plays and has been immensely successful in its endeavours.
The events of today and tomorrow (23rd and 24th January) involve competitions in 3 min. monologues and 15 min. plays based on any social issue which the participant can pick on his/her own. Schools will clash on 23rd while colleges will compete on the 24th. The competitions are open for viewing to the public.
