Gopal Gandhi's wonderfully moving and insightful tragedy elegantly and imaginatively revists one of Indian history's great what-if moments, making us ask again how different things might have been if it was heterodox mystic Dara rather than the puritanical bigot Aurangzeb who had won the civil war and led Mughal India-would Islam and Hinduism have been able to bridge their differences? Would the united Mughal lands have managed to stop the colonial conquests? Would Partition have been impossible..

An exquisite work of comic revelry subtitled 'A Trivial Comedy for Serious People', Importance of Being Earnest is the last and most popular of Oscar Wilde's plays. There is more to the play than its dazzling, hilarious plot - Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew being courted with gradual success by John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff. The Victorian mannerisms and pompous life style are brought under scathing attack through sharp, witty, sarcastic strips of conversation and adept characterisati..

The Post Office
Originally written in Bengali in 1912, The Post Office, a play rich in symbolism and allegory, is about man’s passionate longing for the unattainable and for the call of spiritual freedom. In appearance, said Anita Desai, the play is as modest as a dewdrop; in effect, it is as profound as the ocean. Mahatma Gandhi watched it in Calcutta in 1917 and was enraptured; W.B. Yeats thought it a masterpiece...

Achalayatan - The Petrified Place
Rabindranath Tagore's Achalayatan (1912) presents an arena of conflicting faiths. Built on a story of resistance to the naturalness of life, Mahapanchak's 'Achalayatan', representing a quest of dry wisdom, turns into a petrified land of illusion and immobility. On the other hand, the Sonpangshus are work addicts to the extent that they mistake work for the end and not the means, while the Darvaks remain happy with their simple, unquestioning, selfless devotion...
