The play Kaumudi blends the splendor and the travails of theatre (the Rangmanch) with India’s glorious epic story – the Mahabharata.

Using the moonlit, timeless night on which Krishna delivered knowledge to Arjuna as its central trope, Kaumudi explores the dynamics between an estranged father-son duo who play Eklavya’s ghost and Abhimanyu respectively, in a theatre in the late 1960s in Allahabad. Over three days – the last three performances of a great actor who has nearly lost his sight – the play brings to light the ghosts of caste-based injustices, the passing over of knowledge from a father to a son, a thespian to an upstart, the banality and beauty of art, and how an efficient mode of production ultimately replaces a lesser efficient mode. The play is inspired by two texts: Anand’s Malayalam novel ‘Vyasam Vigneswaram’ and Jorge Luis Borges’ essay ‘Blindness’, and at its core, is about a rite of passage.
