About the Play
May be as a dramatists my commitment to the field is what gave me maximum number of opportunities. Yes, It is… Deep inside me there is an innocent pride when I think that no one in my country has got so much of chances.
It was sometime back I met the dean of the FLAME in Germany. Then we meet again at the inaugural Colombo International Theatre Festival in Colombo which was organized by me. The invitation to teach his academics at the university in Pune gave me tremendous honor. Because as far as I know no dramatist from our countryhad the opportunity to teach or to produce a drama in a foreign country. (Correct me if I am wrong)
But it is not a beginning. I have great sorrow deep within me. Because I did not feel that it is important to my country. The reason being no artists, dramatists joined to appreciate the efforts taken to achieve such a mammoth task. If I have contributed to my country even in the smallest way it should have been appreciated, which did not happen.
Anyway I have with some of my team members, produced an experimental play together with the students of the FLAME university. I am not talking about it. Because evaluation is your task, not mine. I have been able to bring the production I created in a foreign country to my own country.
Please do not hate me… Look at the creations I have made. I have completed my task… If I belong to this country…………
