JAMMU, Aug 22: ‘Mere Hisse Ki Dhoop Kahan Hai’- a play by young artists, was featured on the 3rd day of ongoing 4th Natrang Theatre Festival.
Dr SD Singh Jamwal, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Jammu was the chief guest on the occasion. The play was written and directed by Balwant Thakur, Natrang director, who while introducing the play to the audience, said that this play has the distinction for being the longest living children play of India. Produced in the year 1990 for a UNESCO project, the play created history for representing India in the Asia-Pacific meet in Bangkok.
The play ‘Mere Hisse Ki Dhoop Kahan Hai’, in a very sensitive manner deals with the hazards of population explosion and very subtly highlights every deplorable aspect of population explosion. The irony, which children have to live with, the obstacles they have to face, are brought out in an intrepid manner.
Beginning with malnutrition inadequate food and clothing to seeking admissions in schools and overcrowded classes with no jobs and glaring shortcomings, practically every damaging result of over population is dealt with. The play warns one and all with imminent threat of disaster and destruction if this malady is not immediately arrested. The play ends with thought provoking questions by children, “Why were we brought into this world? Where is our share of sunlight?”
The children who participated in the play included Gopi Sharma, Sumedha Manhas, Sanchita, Asma Gul, Vrinda Sharma, Agam Kaur, Sanya Gupta, Vedhant Suri, Riya Jandial, Sanket, Devisha Gour, Saanvi Anand, Rudra Kohli, Aviral Kapoor, Shristi Kapoor, Sushant Singh Charak, Kushaan Baliya, Soujanya Shekhar, Palshin Dutta, Ojasvi Goswami and Aarti Devi.
The music of the play was scored by Anil Tickoo who was supported by Rakesh Kona on rhythm. The lights were executed by Pankaj Sharma whereas the presentations were done by Sumeet Sharma.
Tomorrow on the concluding day of Natrang Theatre Festival, super comedy play Saiyan Bhaye Kotwal will be presented at Abhinav Theatre at 6 pm.
