Short Description

In this collection of stage/radio plays, 'Slighted Souls' scripts the life of the downtrodden of Rampur nearly a decade after the famous but failed peasant struggle of Telangana.

While 'Men at work on Women at work' is about sexual harassment at the work place, 'Castle of Despair' is built on the ground of man's urge for success.

However, the radio play 'A Love on Hold' delves into the arena of love and possession.

This is a compendium of the author’s Indian stage and radio plays:

"Slighted Souls" is a poignant love story set in rural Telangana, beset with feudal exploitation of the downtrodden dalits. Besides forcing the dalits to toil in the fields as bonded labor without impunity, the land owning doras had no qualms in reducing the womenfolk of this ilk as sex slaves in the gadis, which leads to an armed resistance engulfing an young couple.

Men at work on Women at work" is a tragic-comic episode depicting the fallout of sexual harassment at the workplace in the Indian urban setting with its traditional cultural underpinnings.

"Castle of Despair", built on the slippery ground of man's innate urge for one-upmanship, portrays its facade of falsity on the grand stage of human tragedy.

The radio play, "A Love on Hold", lends voice to the felt anxieties of a man and a woman as their old flame gets rekindled and the dilemmas of possession faced by the couple in a conservative cultural background.
