Kathputli Aur Anya Natak


Kathputli Aur Anya Natak” is a collection of short Hindi dramas written by famous dramatist Lalit Mohan Thapliyal. These short dramas are entertaining, humorous and at the same time raising social issues as well.The various plays in the book are “Kathputli”, “Muthbhed”, “Swapn Aur Satya”, “Anchariyon Ka Talaab”, “Kalpana Ka Khel” & “Qyamat Aa Rahi Hai !”.

A young girl has no career path other than marriage…or does she? If God made this world, why is it in such a terrible state? As a pickpocket argues with a mysterious madaari (juggler) over the right to spend the night on a deserted park bench, their conversation ranges from the troubles of a petty thief to the meaning of life and death. As villagers eke out a difficult living in the harsh mountainous environment, contrasting currents of compassion and fierce rivalry, self-belief and a fear of undead spirits constantly jolt their lives. In the one-act plays in this collection, playwright Lalit Mohan Thapalyal shows us varied snapshots of the contemporary world.
