"Given half a chance, the oppressed become the oppressors, the murdered become the murderers. There is no guarantee that experience leads to goodness in man. In fact he can become an even greater devil."
– Jayaprakash in Kanyadaan
There is no manual on how to live a good life.
Jayaprakash is the son of Nath Devalalikar, a freedom fighter and political leader. He has been brought up with the ideals of a principled Gandhian. These ideals are stretched to a breaking point when Jayaprakash’s sister Jyoti’s life is thrown in turmoil.
Kanyadaan, by Vijay Tendulkar, is a powerful story of how idealism often disintegrates when it comes into contact with reality. The play is directed by Sindu Singh. You won’t want to miss it!
