Solo Performances of Hindustani Short Stories


A poignant and amusing ordeal of a doting grandmother whose granddaughter’s abnormal height looms over her impending marriage and life.

Rajinder Singh Bedi (1 September 1915 – 11 November 1984) wrote of lives that were commonplace but hidden in their very ordinariness, the human spirit shone through in all its lustre and brilliance. His gift for finding the inner meaning in outer reality, took Bedi into the realms of suggestion, symbolism, metaphor & allusion.


Is humanity greater than religious beliefs? Is violence in the name of God holy? The predicament of a decent man in indecent times!

Sa'adat Hasan Manto (11 May 1912 – 18 January 1955) displaced many idols — religion, love, patriotism — through stark writing that placed humanity above everything else. In his world candidness is the cardinal virtue and hypocrisy the cardinal sin. His heart-warming wit, lifts his bleak tales from their atmosphere of gloom, making them invaluable human documents of our times.


On a train, journeying with precious cargo within herself, she comes to realise her place in the present, through her past, with an eye on the future. How different freedom looks from within & without!

Ismat Chughtai (21 July 1915 - 25 October 1991), one of India’s most accomplished fiction writers, epitomised the 20th-century women writers of Urdu: enlightened, bold, iconoclastic, progressive and feminist. Chughtai’s flowing and spontaneous style, occasionally peppered with satirical or witty remarks, makes reading a delight.
