An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with aRANYA Production
Rajkumar has been requested to write a poem for a compilation to be published. If you knew Rajkumar you would realise the absurdity of the request. In an hour-long monologue, Rajkumar tells us about his unremarkable life in his nondescript village and the five grains of sugar—the five people—who have stood out in this drab life for reasons stranger than fiction. The filmy mother; her poet brother, Pundaleek; Raghu, the school hero; old man Radhey; and the anonymous ‘Truckwala dost’. As Rajkumar talks, the five grains become part of a game that he has been unknowingly playing for years … and Rajkumar realises that everyone has a story inside them.
