About the play: The play raises relevant issues in the context of our recent socio-political situation. It addresses communal issues, the issue of development in our country and the idea of democracy. The play's plot is mainly focused on Gandhi having a conversation with Godse. Gandhi has survived the bullet and he decides to visit Godse in prison. This is how the play opens and it takes the form of a dialogue. It is only through dialogue that we can hope to achieve something. Hence Gandhi seeks to understand Godse and wants to hear him. He hopes that Godse will do the same too. Hindutva is not what Hinduism is. 

The play shows that both Gandhi and Godse regard the Gita as a great text, yet their views are so different. It's the same book. You wonder how these two people have imbibed the message of the Gita in such diametrically opposite ways. Ideologies like Hindutva pit people against each other. So let us debate this. If on one hand, we want to do away with communalism and communal elections, how can we let these exist?
