This is interesting event because participants can recite, declaim, shout, or sing their words. They can sit, stand or lie down. They can dance, turn cartwheels, play a musical instrument, or scratch their backs, as long as they perform the words.

9:00pm - 10:20pm
Aaranya's play: Peele Scooter Wala Aadmi

Simple questions may have simple answers, but some questions have no answers at all. These are questions that begin to stay with you… A young man is trying to write, but unanswered questions keep haunting him. The play explores his inner struggle as a writer and a person, as he tries repeatedly to tell the story he wishes to tell.

No comments:

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
