This form evening named Daastane Siyasat was a combination of three small plays.
The first one was “Jamun ka Ped”. It was a play where the protagonist who is a famous writer and poet is stuck under a fallen tree. People surround the tree but are not able to decide which department is supposed to rescue him. The file is moved from one department to the other and in the mean time the poet dies. This is a satire on the bureaucracy prevalent in the Indian system.
The second play was “Ek tha gadha, Alhadad Khan’’. This was a play which depicted the repercussions of following the whims and fancies of the ruling class. The king wanted things his way, without bothering the effect of these on the lives of ordinary people. The death of a donkey was highlighted and a huge procession was planned. On realising his folly, the king ordered the killing of a man with the same name because the sanctity of the funeral was to be maintained.
The third play was ‘Bholaram ka Jeev”. The dilemma of a family who has lost the only bread earner of the family and is forced to live the life of misery because of the hassles that they face in getting his pension papers processed.
All the three plays were satirical in nature and tried to bring out the struggle an ordinary man has to go through in his life.
