Play depicts plight of child labour
Our Correspondent

Chandigarh, July 10
City theatre buffs, who eulogise certain established names and prefer to see their productions, might repent at missing a classic Punjabi play “Chand Jadon Roti Lagda Hai” staged by the Jaito-based natyam group today at Tagore Theatre.

The play depicted the plight of children forced to take up labour and the sentimental blackmail and exploitation engineered by politicians for meeting their political ends.

The duo of playwright Prince K.J. Singh and director Kirti Kirpal, whose classic play “Rabba Rabba” had run over 200 shows, have again teamed up to accentuate on the problem of child labour.

Structured in pastoral ambience, the play revolves around the pathetic life of three ragpickers who fall prey to a vote-bank political conspiracy and are allured for a better career.

Subjected to acute starvation, they die before attempting to “grab the moon in the sky”, an apparent delusion for a piece of bread.

Shamsher Singh excelled along with Satanjit and Gaganjit Saini, all in their teens, who virtually eclipsed the performance of senior actors Harjinder, Gagandip Singh and Kulwinder Saini. Dr Rama Rattan honoured the artistes.
