Event Description : Akshara Theatre and HarperCollins India present Being Gandhi, English Play based on the book by Paro Anand

Hey! So you’re 13 years old, Gandhi Jayanti is coming up and your class teacher has just given you a lame assignment where you have to behave like Gandhiji for a week. I mean…there are more important things a teenager has to worry about, right? Like pimples, and glasses, and cool clothes, and some things that can’t even be shared…But suddenly there is a cataclysmic event and your life is turned upside down.

Paro Anand’s new novel #BeingGandhi is a blend of fun, teenage angst, teenage rebellion, and all-too-soon coming of age, with Mahatma Gandhi at the epicenter. The play is a dramatization of the to-be-released novel.

Chandrashekhar – oh, how he wishes his parents had given him a cooler name – is cute, quirky, naughty and a little eccentric. His inner voice and mind are so active that it needs a whole character, known as C-In, to express itself, while his outer, nerdy, pimply self is C-Out. Even as he has fun and games with his school-friends and his family, little does Chandra know that the Queen of Boringsthan - Class Teacher, Preeti Ma’am’s Gandhi Jayanti assignment will change his life forever. It will probably change your too.

Performed by young Akshara Theatre, New Delhi actors Sharan Makhijani and Arjun Goel, as well as Lubhanshi Jain, Vidya Parthasarathy and the Akshara Repertory, Being Gandhi the play coincides with the release of Being Gandhi the book.
