MESMERISING EVENINGS AT JAINA CONVENTION

JIYO JEE BHAR KE!.

Human beings are the most intelligent, powerful and evolved species on earth. But they are the most manipulative and insensitive too. This play depicts and explores the inhuman aspects of human beings in a dark and unusual manner.

The entire drama takes place in animal laboratory where the primary characters of the play are animals. One of the animals is Dr.Rat who leads the pack, then there is Moti the stray dog, Sweetie the bitch (pug), Sughndhi the wild cat, Mangal Maharaj the murga, Bhondu the pig & Chottu the rabbit. They are all so full of life and make a happy little vibrant family. They all dream and have simple aspirations. But, little do they know that not only their dream but their entire existence will be destroyed in this laboratory by a cruel doctor and his assistants.

Animals have their spinal cord broken, they are artificially paralyzed and stroked, their stomachs are cut in pregnancy, they are injected with AIDS and even burnt alive. All this and more torture in the name of science and research.

The visual imagery and narrative of the play make the viewers uncomfortable, compel them to think and re-look at the things. Although so much is shown, the play never becomes preachy. It celebrates the virtue of Ahimsa, but it never actually talks or preaches about it. It only shows mirror to God's best creation that is "Us", the human beings in a sarcastic way.
