We, The People our conditioning, which is the principle reason behind the above assumption.

College: College of Vocational Studies Society name: DramaNomics Synopsis: “The condition of women in present day India is deplorable. It has indeed become a matter of national concern. The surge in the statistics of crimes against women is appalling. It’s time we took the reins of the situation in our hands. The play throws light upon the ever-present harassment of innumerable women, the shameful mentality of our society towards them, the justification offered for such crimes committed, and how popular lore seeks to visualise and subsequently trivialise the issue,” says Aman Bathla, a member.

Maa Tumse Naa Payega

Name of the play:

Joota College: Gargi College Society name: Kshitij Synopsis: Joota, a political satire, introduces a person in search of change who finds a ‘shoe’ that’ll bring about the change everyone is waiting for. The person transforms into ‘Jooteshwar’, personifying the ‘Joota’ and gains the support of people to not only fight the elections, but win

them, too, and let the ‘joota’ start the revolutionary change. The question is, ‘Is the Joota powerful enough to bring the change that a common man seeks?’, ‘Is Joota a solution to every problem a common man faces?’, ‘Is Joota responsible to bring the change that we seek?’,” says Minna Sarawat, a member of the society.

College: Hans Raj College Society name: Hansraj Dramatics Society Synopsis: “The first thought that comes to our minds when we hear of a rapist or a murderer is that he deserves to be hanged/ put behind bars. But how do you chain a person who is languishing in the chains of his own mind? 60% of criminals in Tihar jail are mentally ill. The play focuses on the issue of rehabilitation of mentally unsound criminals,” says Aayushi Rathi.

surprise that women’s empowerment is a greatly discussed topic with no real solution coming to the fore. The play strives to create a place for women to live peacefully, where they can make independent decisions and rightfully own what is theirs — their freedom,” says Mallika Tiwari, member of the society.

College: PGDAV College Society name: Rudra Synopsis: “What is ego? It’s been defined as an inflated feeling of pride in a person where he considers himself superior to others and goes through an exaggerated sense of self importance. Ego is the very root of anger, greed, lust and envy. Its purpose is only to perpetuate ill, discord and disharmony among the human race. This production is an attempt to bring the issue of ego into the public domain and explain how it completely destroys the rationality and reason of a person,” says Aman Joshi.

College: Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology Society name: Et Cetera Synopsis: “Every country has its own issues and we all know that India is in a pathetic state of affairs. But here India is not the real problem, it is in the people’s mercenary attitude. Self interest has hogged our minds and we’ve taken the easy way of criticising our country,” says Simarpreet Singh.
