Event Description : SEHAR presents "Samagam-2" theater festival.

SEHAR Society for Education, Harmony, Art, Culture and Media Reproduction is a registered body under Society Act 1860 (Registration no.S/59391/2007) and working in 
the sector of Arts primarily over the last 8 years. We have come up with several theatre productions and worked with govt. bodies like Urdu Academy, Karnataka. We had series of production oriented theatre workshops with the support of National School of Drama and named SAMAGAM in 2009. This festival had performances of Theatre, Music, Dance and Performance Art including Film shows. We had hosted performances like ‘Ayodhya Babu Sanak Gaye Hain’ directed by Prof. D.R. Ankur, ‘Roop-Aroop’ directed by Prof. Tripurari Sharma, and ‘9 Idiots’ directed by Pravin Kumar Gunjan for the festival. 
For the second SAMAGAM, we will be having there shows of two of our successful plays, Khwahishen and Jee Hamein To Natak Karna Hai.

19th and 21st September : Khwahishen
While change is the only constant aspect of society, dealing with it is the toughest challenge. The tiff between the old and the new way of life always creates a tension in society. Khwahishen is a story of three people caught in the web of changing times, stuck 
to their beliefs and unable to understand each other. While their ability to empathise might be the only solution to break the web, they cannot see how they have entangled themselves causing much distress to each other. This play brings forth the politics of love and insecurities by questioning differences and dominance accorded on the basis of gender. 
Rati is an educated, career oriented, strong woman who stays alone in a metropolitan city. She is not a regular romantic girl who gets swooned by mush; rather a headstrong, practical woman who perceives sex as a physical need much like one needs oxygen to breathe and a ‘romantic’ relationship only as a part of life just like her family and friends are. Her relationship with Jaggi is based on mutual understanding their practical needs and other commitments on life. But twist in the tale happens when Rati meets Imran – a romantic shayar, in sync with the older wisdom of ‘love one, love forever’. Will Rati and Jaggi enjoy this breeze of mush while laughing it off or their relationship will dash down like a pack of cards?

20th September : Jee Humein To Natak Karna Hai 
Jee Humein To Natak Karna Hai is a comic-drama which narrates a story of a bunch of incompatible yet together, strong headed but fickle-minded people who are adamant on staging a production as part of an amateur theatre group they belong to. But their diversity in age groups, backgrounds, and ambitions leads to constant fights and bickering, much to the chagrin of their director who has taken them under his wing to accomplish a larger purpose. In search of a subject, they explore a few social issues and try their hand at various roles and characters. Dissatisfied with every effort and indiscipline prevalent inside the group their director tries hard to find a solution to all such problems which any amateur theatre group faces. While some see theatre as a stepping stone to fulfil their starry ambitions of fame and glamour, others have short term goals like weight loss, recreation and romance. In the course of their journey all the actors are left a little wiser with regard to their responsibility towards their society and themselves, but not without posing a more pertinent question to the audiences. What is their role in society? Are they not actors in their own way? If not, then why not?
