Hey! So you’re 13 years old, Gandhi Jayanti is coming up and your class teacher has just given you a lame assignment where you have to behave like Gandhi for a week. I mean…there are more important things a teenager has to worry about, right? Like pimples and glasses, and cool clothes, and some things that can’t even be shared…But suddenly there is a cataclysmic event and your life is turned upside down.

Set in the ‘80s, Paro Anand’s new novel Being Gandhi is a blend of fun, teenage angst, teenage rebellion, and all-too-soon coming of age, with Mahatma Gandhi at the epicentre. The play is a dramatization of the to-be-released novel.

Chandrashekhar – oh, how he wishes his parents had given him a cooler name – is cute, quirky, naughty and a little eccentric. His inner voice and mind are so active that it needs a whole character, known as C-In, to express itself, while his outer, nerdy, pimply self is C-out. Even as he has fun and games with his school-friends and his family, little does Chandra know that the Queen of Boringsthan -- Class Teacher Preeti Ma’am’s Gandhi Jayanti assignment will change his life forever. It will probably change yours too.

Performed by young Akshara actors Sharan Makhijani, Arjun Goel, Saanvi and Rudrapriyam, as well as Lubhanshi Jain, Vidya Parthasarathy, Shantanu Mishra and the Akshara Repertory, Being Gandhi the play coincides with the release of Being Gandhi the book.
