Event Description : Drashta theatre group presents 'Ekaaant' Hindi Play. 

Ekaaant - Play 
(Four Monologues).
This is a collage of four monologues written by Satyajit Ray and Nirmal Verma  and directed by R’jesh Bali. The four monologues : Bijooka, Dhoop ka ek Tukda, Dedh Inch Upar and Anukool are timeless classics. Nirmal Verma write about solitude and the individual's capacity to live in peace and turmoil at the same time. Each character is attempting to come to terms with what has happened to him. Written in lucid language, each monologue, while being about different people, is united by the theme of solitude.  As Ray known for supernatural stories, we can feel a typical Ray mark in them, these stories send chills in to our spine. Some of them just sound weird, terrify you, if you are absorbed in them like –Of course, there is a routine horror one. Ray has an excellent style that imbues a feeling of shock, of horror of some weird feeling in us by the time we reach the end of the story with humour. These stories portray certain human emotions which elicit laughter. Certain idiosyncrasies that form part of people’s mentality are heroes in these stories. It generates laughter, but at the same time, it chills and may even shock the audiences.

Satyajit Ray was an Indian filmmaker. He is regarded as one of the few great masters of world cinema. Besides filmmaking, Ray also wrote stories and developed his own distinct style of writing. He is also known for his works on calligraphy and advertising. Ray was born in the city of Calcutta into a Bengali family prominent in the world of arts and literature. Ray received many major awards in his career, including 32 Indian National Film Awards, a number of awards at international film festivals and award ceremonies, and an Academy Honorary Award in 1992. The Government of India honoured him with the Bharat Ratna in 1992.
