SYNOPSIS: A one act play about the haunting journey of an Afghan refugee, Shahwali Bhashiri, who escapes Afghanistan during the Taliban regimen in search of a safe home with his family. Being an Afghan in the post 9/11 world he struggles to survive as he comes across extremely horrific circumstances.
The story is based on the facts of the infamous Tampa affair.
In August 2001, the Howard Government of Australia refused permission for the Norwegian freighter MV Tampa, carrying 438 rescued Afghans from a distressed fishing vessel in international waters, to enter Australian water. When the Tampa entered Australian waters, the Prime Minister ordered the ship be boarded by Australian Special Forces.

Dario fo's O.T.S on 21st & 22nd May directed by Arvind Gaur @ IHC

Dario Fo’s Comic- Satire "Operation Three Star" Directed by Arvind Gaur
on 21st & 22nd May 2011 at India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi
(Hindi adaptation of Accidental Death of an Anarchist),
Adaptation in Hindi by Amitabh Srivastava
Lyrics - Piyush Mishra
Actors - Viren Basoya,Shilpi Marwaha,Saurabh Pal,Malay Garg,Himanshu Maggo,Shiv Chauhan,Rahul Khanna

About The Play- Grounded in a very specific, disturbing political reality the Operation Three Star (Adaptaion of Dario Fo's Accidental Death of an Anarchist ) offers a scathing comment the real events which are criminal and obscene in their brutality: Crimes of the state .
With his seemingly insane logic the maniac is instrumental in unmasking the criminal folly of the law enforcing agency in its attempts to cover up heinous action. He persistently ridicules the police's shaky case and forces them to re-enact the situation in that led to the 'suicide' of a 'terrorist' under their custody.
Subsequently, they contradict themselves to dismantle the whole issue of half-truths and non-sequiturs. An escalating series of impersonations and misunderstandings extend a particular viewpoint.
The jerk from comic gags to a fuller awareness of serious issue becomes a potent device as the crude violence of the power-that-be is recognized.
Today when newspaper headlines are screaming about police atrocities, operation three star becomes a compelling study on the anatomy of violence... taut, energetic and embellished with a compelling performance by actors,OTS becomes a noteworthy addition to Asmita's repertoire… Imaginative methodology, which is reflected in,plays Tughlaq, Court-Martial and O.T.S - Nikhat Kazmi ,Times of India

Very relevant and timely...the play comes down hard on police brutality, inefficiency & connivance.- Smita Nirula (Pioneer)

Gaur updated the script with contemporary references of police Violence, bhagalpur, rape in police custody, killing of two innocent Businessmen in C.P. -Kavita Nagpal (Hindustan Times)

Arvind Gaur's direction has acquired a noticeable tautness...the tempo was well maintained and changes of scene effected smoothly...Thought provoking. The group sang, danced and soft peddled and Impressed the full house.- Saroj Vashist (Delhi Monday)

Competent direction...powerful more achievement by Arvind Gaur and his team Asmita.- Amit Kumar (Rashtriya Sahara)
