The late Dr. Shankar Shesh was an eminent Hindi theatre playwright with over 20 original plays to his credit. Some of Dr. Shesh’s famous plays include EK AUR DRONACHARYA, POSTER, RAKTABEEJ, KOMAL GANDHAR, among others.

In 2015, Sanjay Shesh, Dr. Shankar Shesh’s son found the Shankar Shesh Foundation Trust (SSFT) in his father’s memory. Sanjay Shesh has since devoted his energies to the foundation to not only keep his father’s work alive but to also encourage original playwriting in Hindi.

Every month there are play readings at the Shesh residence in Chembur, Mumbai. The idea is to find good plays in Hindi and to encourage new and young writers.

The “Shankar Shesh Natya Mahotsav” in its 3rd edition already is gearing to become more widespread. This time it will take place across various cities in India.

2nd October is Dr. Shankar Shesh’s birth anniversary. In Mumbai the festival will see the opening of Dr. Shesh’s play ARE MAYAVI SAROVAR, directed by Salim Arif.
