Event Description : TRUST presents ‘Ye Kothewaliyaan’ Hindi Play. 

‘Ye Kothewaliyaan’ is the play based on Padmabhushan Amrit Lal Nagar’s, novel, which is the original and unique social survey on the issues of sex workers – ‘Ye Kothevaliyan (1960)’,  which is based on the interviews done with real life Tawaifs and Kothewalis. This play tries to engage into the debate of social relations and gender identities;  the representation of women & their place in society; exploitation of women with changing social, political and economic scenario of the country; and their relationships to men.
Amritlal Nagar, interviewed all types of women engaged in pleasing-men business - the kothewalis, prostitutes, sex workers, nautch girls, courtesans, and when they asked about … if they being given a chance to marry and settle in a homely set up, will they do so? The answer which most of them gave was a blatant ‘No’. ….knowing there is a harsh reality lies at the end their journey … This realization is the saddest truth about women and their condition in society.
