Sutradhar presents 'Maryaada' - 'Sita Shoorpanakha' and 'Touch'
The unspoken boundary of the psyche; the silent barrier of our hearts and souls. Some dedicate their entire lives to preserving it, sacrificing their passions and crushing the very feelings and emotions that make them question the ideals they have bound themselves and those who love them in and in the process earn the epithet of 'Maryaada Purushottam'. While others spend their lives straining beneath the weight of the heavy ideals imposed on them by society - struggling to break free.
But what lies beyond? Beyond definitions of right or wrong; good or evil; ugly or beautiful when the robes handed down over centuries of civilized society are stripped away what is real? Is it necessary to choose one truth: either that of the victor or the vanquished? Can it be that each of us gets to choose our own truth and each is equally real?
