Hindustani Play

An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with Afsana Theatre

In this montage of three stories from the heart of Bijnor, we listen to the narrator reminisce about his little village, revealing its many facets.

Hawa’ is the story of a newlywed bride, who becomes the talk of the town for bizarre reasons. She finds a way to deflate the endless gossip, but only time will tell how effective her strategy is.

The whole town backs down before the infamous ‘Fakko Ka Murga’ and his deadly peck. Little does Fakko know that this winged friend, her only companion in a solitary life, will bring her much distress.

In ‘Totaa Udd, Maina Udd’, the youngest of three daughters is sent to her sister’s marital home after her wedding day. She sees, hears and experiences much that is as yet beyond her ken. Her reactions are naïve, but her instincts are in the right place.

The stories are rewarding for the way they point to much that remains unsaid, desires never uttered because of intolerance, conditioning or lack of opportunity. What stays unspoken has to be read between the lines.
