The play is set against the backdrop of social stratification and pseudo-nationalism impacting Indian society today. A bunch of amateurs in rural India collaborate to assert their right to voice opinions through the power of theatre while taking on these social issues.

Symbols of nationalism are vital to our national identity, but genuine patriotism transcends these symbols.

The uniqueness of the play lies in its use of an entire hamlet and its inhabitants to deliver an interesting and experimental fare with touches of the avant garde. The sets of the play also reflect the rebellious content of the play.

Great care has been taken to convey the passion behind the theme of the play with political responsibility and within the limitations of rural theatre.

I am sure that the characters and the situations in the play will follow you home and leave a lasting impression on you.
