PS Bank,NZCC,Kalakriti staged Punjabi Play Yeh Zindagi
Punjab and Sind Bank & North Zone Cultural Centre (Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India) Patiala collaboration with the Kalariti Patiala, Punjabi Play “Yeh Zindagi” staged at Kalidasa Auditorium Virsa Vihar Kender NZCC Patiala. The play based on Chitra Mudgill’s Famous Hindi Novel, “Gilli Guddu” and it was written and directed by Noted Theatre Director, Actress and short Film Director Parminderpal Kaur. Attempts were made to focus on the aspects of how a senior citizen of a particular class needs to go through difficulties while living in the family in every family of the society.
Parminder Pal Kaur’s latest dramatic tour-de-force ‘Yeh Zindgi’ is a soul-stirring play poignantly depicting the unspeakable agony, humiliation and shame suffered by senior citizens in the so-called civilized society of the 21st century.
In the play Er. Jaswant Singh and Col. Swamy, not withstanding their past glory are representative of millions of their unfortunate brethren who are condemned to lead miserable lives because of the apathy, indifference and cruelty of their own children. They desperately try to maintain the facade of being loved and accepted, but chinks in their armour betray their hollow claims.
The play is a powerful indictment of contemporary society which in its quest for mad, materialistic success and prestige, is biding adieu to time honoured values and human relations that have sustained the grand edifice of humanity for centuries.
