Jis Lahore  Nahi  Dekhya was written in the 1980s but today it has become our willing tool to showcase love and harmony between communities in our  Nation which has the  most varied diversity.  


The story, set in 1947,  is about an old Hindu woman in Lahore who, robbed of her son and family as a result of the riots at partition refuses to be robbed of her home by a Muslim refugee family from  Lucknow. The Muslim family, having suffered the painful displacement of partition are desperate and not averse to bringing in the local, political goons.  Even as the goons move in, sensing the advantage of exploiting the situation,  they remain blind to the inherent strength of human kindnesses. A bond surfaces between the old woman and the displaced family that fills up the vacuum in their lives as the old woman guides them through a strange land. It is this unexpected human bonding and empathy for our fellow creatures,  the ability to see ourselves in others,  a brotherhood of inclusion that makes the world such a beautiful place despite repeated attempts at divisiveness by vested interests.

Lahore.. is the story of two communities who have suffered first-hand the horrors of partition and still have the strength and humanity to rise above petty hatred. Partition and the untold and widespread misery that it wrought was a great lesson for the people of this country.  

As  we  revisit  our  history,  the  play  not  only  entertains  with  its  share  of  drama  and  histrionics but  elevates  us  socially  and  emotionally,  sensitizing  us  towards those  different  from  us and  motivating  us  to bring  out  the  best  in  each  other.   

This  play  assumes  even  more  importance  in  the  light  of   the  spate  of  the  recent  terror attacks  globally. It  has  become  even  more  imperative  to drive  home  the  message  of ‘tolerance  and  mutual  respect  and  cooperation ’  not  only between communities  but  among  nations across the seven seas  to  prevent  the  birth  of  future  terrorists.
