The World Wide Fund for Animals (WWF) of Hyderabad is staging a comedy play by Bharat Dabholkar called Carry On Heaven, on 7th October, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. The staging is a part of WWF's efforts to raise funds to support and sustain their ongoing projects in protecting wild life species.

In this musical comedy, the King of gods Indra desires to see a 20th century man. But what he gets is much more than he has bargained for, when a mischief-maker gets an Indian minister of considerable political clout to the gates of Heaven.

The minister, a thorough-bred political animal, falls prey not to the godly aura of swarg or its seductive apsaras, but to the alluring grandeur of Indrasan, Indra’s celestial throne. This is the kursi of his dreams, the ultimate seat of power.

What follows is a hilarious chain of events in which Yamraj, the god of death, joins the new coalition party. Menaka, the heavenly apsara, gets a makeover as Britney Spears. Hip and smart advertising executives are flown up to heaven to create an advertising campaign that would give the dark god of Death a new shining sparkling poster-image.

Elections break out in swarg, and finally when all the constitutional means fail to avoid a hung Parliament and a breakthrough in diplomacy, a political qawwali solves the problem.

The music for the play has been designed by Louis Banks, and the songs are a takeoff on popular Bollywood and Hollywood numbers.

For more than 45 years, WWF has been protecting the future of nature. The largest multinational conservation organization in the world, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by by close to 5 million people globally. WWF's mission is the conservation of nature. It works to preserve the diversity and abundance of life on earth and the health of ecological systems.

The entry is only by donor passes, costing Rs. 3,000, Rs. 2,000, Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 500 per head. Please contact the WWF at 2353-4151/2353-3998/94412-30296 for passes and further details.
