Gajab Kahani

Theatre | Hindi | Age 12


History attests that in 1551, an elephant made the journey from Lisbon to Vienna. Solomon the elephant and his mahout had already made a long sea voyage from Goa and spent a couple of years standing about in a pen in Lisbon, before setting off for Valladolid as a present from the king to the Archduke, who travelled with him to Italy by ship and across the Alps to Vienna. In the play, loosely based on Nobel laureate Jose Saramago’s ‘The Elephant’s Journey’, Solomon and his mahout Subhro proceeded through various landscapes at an unhurried pace, attended by various functionaries and military men, and meeting along the way with villagers and townsfolk who variously interpret the sudden enigma of an elephant entering their lives.
