Through the dramas, student-artists successful manage to convey the messages against the prevailing social evils in our society. In play ‘Duvidha’ which was derived from Vijaydan Detha’s short story, the play tells of a merchant’s son who returns home with his new bride only to be sent away again for family business for 7 years. A ghost witnesses the bridge’s arrival and falls in love with her. He takes on the husband’s form and lives with her. She has his child and then the real husband reaches home. A shepherd finally traps the ghost in a bag.
Similarly, play ‘Behavioral Science’ deals with human action and often seeks generalize about human behavior as it relates society. This deals with the story of sensitive relationship between mother and son. An emotional one act play left the message of dealing with true and false relations.
Play ‘Jaan-e-mann’ deals with the plight of enuches in our society. In the play the tragedy behind the life of eunuchs was revealed in the play. In one side we call them to be the part of happy moment of our lives but at the same time we tease them by calling Hijraasand jaan-e-mann.
