SYNOPSIS – DROHA KATHA
In the midst of World War II, as the world`s most powerful individuals vie for supremacy, the Hindi play `Droh Katha` unfolds against the backdrop of the Manhattan Project—a monumental endeavour entwined with the shadows of Germany, Russia, and China. This colossal scientific achievement, the creation of the deadliest power in human history, was tragically transformed into a curse for Japan, where thousands perished in the flames. Science bore an indelible stain while the mighty grew mightier.
Yet, amidst the overwhelming might, there stood a man who refused to yield. This unsung hero did whatever was necessary to thwart the madness of unchecked power. Branded a traitor, he worked tirelessly for the sake of future generations.
The pinnacle of arrogance mirrors the raw conceit that drove Duryodhan to wage a war. Mahabharata was a war between the intoxicating power of sheer audacity, adharma and righteousness, dharma. The 18-day mayhem serves as a timeless lesson, illustrating the power of hope and truth. The characters in our play draw strength from this war of egos, arrogance, and the unwavering call of truth and positivity, guiding them towards what they believe to be right.
Klaus Fuchs, Oppenheimer, Truman, Fermi, Rose, Pearl, Szilard, Leslie Groves, and numerous others dedicated their all to their tumultuous journey through treachery and truth. The ultimate truth, born only of living it, prevails. History belongs to those who act, not to those who passively bear witness. `Droh Katha` chronicles the story of those who stepped forward, doing whatever it took to establish righteousness, truth, and their unwavering convictions. They sacrificed everything and gave their all.
The artists of the theatre group, Ashram Mandalee, bring to the performance their experience of multiple stage shows. The subtle understanding of those times and complex and uncertain situations demanded in-depth knowledge of both story and character. The effort and study reflect in the life-like portrayals, in their angst and convictions.
