About the play:
Hajar Churashir Maa (Mother of 1084) centers on the militant communist uprising during the Naxalite agitation, leading to the death of young rebels in Bengal by the Indian government. The story follows a mother when she learns that her Naxalite son was brutally killed by the government and lays dead as corpse no. 1084 at the police morgue. As she attempts to understand her son’s dedication as a rebel, she also realizes her alienation in the corrupt society her son bravely fought against.
