When you gotta go you gotta go, and it was just as well that Gandhiji was lost
to us when he was. He was becoming too much of an impediment for a world that
wanted to let itself into the expected path of kali. Here's a version of why it
was good that he didn't hang around too long.
J V Ramana Murthy, a veteran stage artist and film actor whose stage and film careers began 55 and 44 years back respectively, started a theater group called Ramaneeyam Rangam last year. And this group is all set to present a play called "Gandhi Jayanthi" today.
The play will show Gandhiji taking rebirth in the present world where humans indulge in all kinds of wrong doings, and where there are atrocities prevailing all around. The play shows politicians and common people welcoming him to join him their respective leagues, which he refuses. He pleads with them to desist from indulging in wrongdoing and mayhem, and of course, faces a lot of opposition from all counters. Can he digest all this? Can he change the current scenario?
The play shows us to what extent politician can go to achieve success. About 30 actors will take part in it. Ramana Murthy himself will play the key role of Gandhiji. The Additional Commissioner of MCH, D Vijaya Kumar, has scripted this play. M Sharat Kumar will provide the music, and Kamala Ramani handles choreography.
