With Jayati Bhatia playing roles from a teenager to a septuagenarian. A slice of life is free, but bring your own sunshine.

The Lahoti Foundation, in association with Kalakriti Art Gallery, is organising the 4th Krishnakriti Art And Culture Festival 2007, at various venues, from 7th to 11th January. A series of art and cultural programs will be organised during this period. Today, the last day, a comedy play in Hindi called Khatijabai Of Karmali Terrace, will be staged at the Secunderabad Club, by Q's Theatre.

An adaptation of the Singaporean play Stella Kon’s Emily Of Emerald Hill, Q Theatre’s Khatijabai Of Karmali Terrace opened at the Prithvi Festival in November 2004. The play, a monologue, has Jayati Bhatia playing diverse roles — from a teenager to a septuagenarian.

Khatijabai is an innocent woman, but circumstances make her manipulative. She starts off as an abandoned teenager, who grows to be the matriarch of a household and ends up being abandoned once again in her old age. The play is a story of not just one woman, but of all of us who are trapped in lives that aren’t exactly our own.

The play, in a nutshell, is about wanting to belong. Director Quasar Thakore Padamsee (Q as he is called) came upon this play during a drama course. It is set in Mumbai’s Khoja community, and the action unfolds in a Colaba building. Incidentally, Khatijabai’s character is inspired by Q’s paternal grandmother, Kulsum Padamsee, to whom he has dedicated the play.

The Krishnakriti Art And Culture Festival is being organised every year by the Lahoti Foundation, which was established by Prashant Lahoti in memory of his father Krishnachandra B Lahoti. On this occasion, art camps are organised by eminent artists and the works are auctioned off at the end of the festival. The proceeds from the sales go to The Krishnachandra B Lahoti Scholarship, which sponsors holistic education for deserving and needy students. Last year's proceeds have gone a long way in supporting 70 children.

Entry to the comedy play is by invitations, which can be collected at Kalakriti Art Gallery, Plot No. 468, Road No. 10, Banjara Hills. For further details, please contact 6656-4466.
