 Ammi Jaan is performed by Laxmi Chandrashekhar, directed by Satchit Puranik and Naveen Kumar J.

Inspired from Una Madre (originally, in Italian) written by Franca Rame and Dario Fo

 AMMI JAAN is a monologue of a woman without a name. She can be called Amina or Zahida or anything, for that matter. But she is known to everyone in Tannery Road, Bengaluru as Ammi or Ammi Jaan, a term of endearment.

 Ammi Jaan loves to chat, about the neighbourhood gossip, about the half informed knowledge she gains from the obsolete world of her run down cyber café. About the news, both fake and true, that she receives on her modest smart phone.

 Ammi Jaan loves to cook and feed, like most mothers, in her neighbourhood.  She flaunts about the new recipe that she had invented for her only son, Mehmood. As the apple of her eye has a weak constitution and suffers from Irritable bowel syndrome since a tender age, she has devised her own ingenious biryani-e-kathal

 She has been packing a  tiffin with this biriyani, which she wants to feed her son. Incidentally, he is in jail. Accused of being a terrorist, or an anti national or an urban naxal, or whatever, the nomenclature of the charge doesnt really matter. But his crime does. The government had been mapping the dreams of some of its citizens, and in his particular dream his subconscious reveals that he has been thinking of a certain food item, a certain kind of non vegetarian platter, full of stake and kababs.

 Dreaming of a certain forbidden meat could mean the end of his freedom. Or the end of his life. Ammi Jaan is telling the audience how dreams work and life ends. Suited for 8+ years
