Bertolt Brecht 's "Ramkali" Adaptation of Bertolt Brecht 's play - "The Good Person of Szechwan" Adapted in Hindi By Amitabh Srivastava,Lyrics By Piyush Mishra, Music by Dr.Sangeeta Gaur 18th Sept, 7:00pm At Sri Ram Centre, Safdar Hashmi Marg, Mandi House, New Delhi.
About play Ramkali-...It raises core issues facing today’s world, of greed versus common good, of the value of right and wrong, ...of the pressures society puts on pe...ople which drive them to committing wrongs to keep up with expectations, the exploitation of goodness and of good people by an aspiring society, and the question of equating theft and wrong doing out of need with that done out of greed.
It is said that between the battle of wrong and right, it is truth that wins, yet ladies and gentlemen, the truth in this play is yet to be discovered… so if you think it has been some time since you’ve done a good deed, think again… maybe not. May be we all have been Ramkali, doing “the right thing’ in the wrong place or vice versa ! Still having second thoughts? -
To those born later-
You who will emerge from the flood
Which we have gone under.
Remember When you speak of our failings
The dark time too Which you have escaped.
For we went, changing countries oftener than our shoes
Through the wars of the classes,
despairing When there was injustice only,
and no rebellion.
Think of us… - Brecht
