Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 20: Balwant Thakur's popular Dogri play 'Gatt' was staged here today at Deewan-e-Aam, Mubarak Mandi under Natrang's weekly theatre series 'Sunday Theatre'. Based on Krishna Chander's famous Urdu classic short story 'Khadda' the play is a hard hitting satire on the decay of human values. Balwant Thakur has adapted it in such a contemporary manner that the audience instantly identifies itself with the play. It was a surprising theatrical treat for the people present at Mubarak Mandi who thoroughly enjoyed the performance and responded with repeated applauses at the satirical punches of the play. The play "Gatt" shows that one and all tend to shirk their own responsibilities and work and pass it on to others. Instead they indulge in high sloganeering, claiming to be the redeemers of the suffering masses. This is symbolized by a person falling into a ditch whose pleas to help him come out unanswered by one and all. Different people pass by him like surveyors, young men, religious, leaders, cops, political leader in power and a foreigner. The person in distress is given different excuses and pleas for their inability in extending help to him. The slogans of the up-liftment of the poor fade away with the flowing dusty wind. Finally a man from the audience appears and appeals everyone to render a helping hand to this common man who is still in the ditch despite having celebrated sixty-four years of India's Independence. The play reflects the plight of the poor masses who continue to suffer for want of help from those at the helm of affairs. Natrang actors who acted in the play included Neeraj Kant as Neta, Mahikshit Singh as Aadmi, Mohd Yaseen as Karamchari 1, Brijesh Avtaar Sharma as Karamchari 2, Gautam Kumar as Aashiq-1 Zeeshan Haider as Aashiq-2.
