45 minute one-man-show on Bhagat Singh
India mean to a true nationalist? Is there a god? How did the British see
the world and India's role in it? What did India mean to a British Officer?
A story that searches for man's ultimate question. A gripping 45 minute
one-man-show that revolves around the thoughts of one of India's greatest
patriots - Bhagat Singh.
Bhagat Singh's famous essay which he wrote before he was hanged, the play
is a conversation between Bhagat Singh and his British guard. The
guard wonders why a man who is about to die, doesn't believe in God. And
tries to convince him that belief could make his last few days easier.
In a seemingly
light manner, the audience gets an idea of pre-independence India, what
it means to a man who is willing to give his life for his country and what
it means to the ruling class. The conversation though light and frothy,
addresses a serious subject with sensitivity. Thought provoking and ending
with an engaging surprise the play has universal appeal.
