PARMAATMA adapted by Reoti Saran Sharma & directed by Ajay Manchanda 
Parmaatma adapted by the veteran Reoti Saran Sharma and directed by Ajay Manchanda revolves around the challenges of contemporary society, where human values, governance, ethics, morality, equality make strange bed fellows. It depicts how the absence of a composite culture and a common goal has denigrated the society beyond repair. The malaise of corruption, governance deficit, vested media interests, religious fundamentalism and crony capitalism have come to rule our lives and we, as key actors in the society, do little to challenge these issues. Paramatma (God) and Naradmuni who are main protagonists of the play try and analyse what is wrong in our society today. The play is a reflection of all that is wrong in the society – how political leaders manipulate systems, subvert the legitimate rights of people and in collusion with wealthy businessmen run a morally and socially bankrupt country. Written in 1945-47 by Krishan Chander, the play assumes even greater significance today with all that is happening around us. The end of the play epitomizes the helpless situation we are in and how even God, who sees it all, doesn’t have a cure for this systemic disease. The play raises several key critical questions – are we doing enough to battle this disease? Is there a solution to this? Will the society degenerate further?

YEH DAAG DAAG UJAALA written by Anis Azmi & directed by Ajay Manchanda
Yeh Daag Daag Ujaala. The play is written by the noted playwright Anis Azmi, Secretary Urdu Academy, Delhi and designed and directed by Ajay Manchanda. The play is an attempt to depict the sacrifices made by our freedom fighters to secure independence for the country. It goes on to show how over the time their vision has been diluted by the various social evils like corruption, dowry, female feticides, sexual harassment and others that continue to plague our society. The play tries to portray the extent to which our society has degenerated and moved away from what our freedom struggle stood for and the values that it epitomized.
