kyun kyun ladki

A couple of weeks ago we took the boys to NCPA for a wonderful children's play called 'kyun kyun ladki' based on Mahashweta Devi's book by the same name. The book is already a favourite in our house and that coupled with the fact that the play was in Hindi made it a real treat. Ofcourse, the train ride to town with good friend Puku and his parents made the evening even more fun.
This was Anurag's first play (Kabir had been to 'The Jungle book' last year) and he was absolutely riveted. There were no props used in the play and the cast beautifully and imaginatively portrayed things like Moyna trying to kill a snake, children riding bicycles, big waterfalls, handpump etc. Anurag was smitten by Moyna and asked to see her after the play which she readily agreed to. Unfortunately he refused to let me take a picture of him with her. But I do have some pics from the play which I will post shortly.
