Karma Kala Manch - Mumbai based theatre group is performing two shorts plays based on issues such as AIDS and female foeticide.

Zinda Laash

Written by: Azaad Bharti & Directed by: Manav-Azaad

Zinda laash is a one act play about an AIDS victim, his pain and the social negligence. An orphan boy Alam who believes a group of people as his world, is being neglected, hated and disregarded by the same, when he is diagnosed HIV positive. An uneducated tea-stall servant Lallu, who is a silent viewer of the whole scenario, make the concern people like Sahil, Madhur, Madhuri, Anjali, Shanta, Sampat to realize the importance of humanity. Then how they teach a lesson to bad elements i.e Dr. Ashish Vaidya, Pandit & Local leader V. N Dubey related to politics, religion and the whole society.

Even today in India in spite of so much awareness, an AIDS victim is harassed & tortured mentally & physically. The play throws light on the need & importance of spreading AIDS awareness.

Ek Nanhi Cheekh

Written by: Vikas Jain- Azaad Bharti & Directed by: Kunal Mehta

This story is about female foeticide. It shows how the society is dominated by males who hate the girl child so much that they go to an extent of not allowing her to come into the world & abort it eventually.

The story revolves around two couples who are expecting a baby & the husbands forcing their wives to get it aborted when they get to know that they are going to have a baby girl. What happened next when the diverse effect of this crime ruined their lives.

These plays will be performed on 1st May, Saturday, 9 PM at Prabhodhankar Thackrey Hall (mini auditorium), Borivali (W).
