Rating is quick and easy - try it!

When a fraudster gets to sit on the chair of a swami, he immediately becomes the guiding light for streams of devotees. It's easy to laugh in this play, and, as it argues, just as easy to do the same.

Sutradhar is presenting a full-length Hindi play, Goodbye Swamy, at the Potti Sreeramulu Telugu University Auditorium, on 17th November. The play is the story of a fugitive-on-the-run who enters an ashram, where the swamiji gives him refuge and offers him all that he owns, provided he reforms. By a strange quirk of fate, the fugitive occupies the seat of the ashram, quite unwillingly. Here a stream of devotees blindly follow the diktats of the fraudster, and lo and behold, even benefit from his pranks.

The play shows how the Indian masses hero-worship, particularly those from the religious class. For them it doesn’t matter who sits on the pulpit - anyone who gets there is accepted as the ultimate arbiter of their destinies. The followers range from politicians to housewives to gamblers to acne-ridden girls. The crux of the play is best summed up by the fraud swami himself.

Embellished with live music and songs, this play is written by Sushil Kumar Singh, and directed by Prof. Bhaskar Shewalkar and Vinay Varma. Entry is by donor passes of Rs. 100 each, available at Sutradhar, Himayatnagar and Saptaparni, Road No. 8, Banjara Hills. Concession will be provided to students upon production of identity cards. For further details, please contact 98480-52541/98493-31347/93924-94887/6682-1789.
