A Little Drama at the Home School
The children of Isha Home School displayed their talent and creativity when they enacted Gupi Gayen Bagha Bayen – a novel by Upendra Kishore Ray which has also been adapted to film by his grandson, the legendary film-maker Satyajit Ray. Playwright Manasi Subramaniam who adapted the novel for the stage was also a part of the audience at the evening’s event.

It has left such an indelible impression that I have started dreaming of an Ashram Musical. There was one tune carried through the whole play which has remained in me as a sweet reminder of sheer life. Even now, I hear the tune being hummed here and there as I go by.

It was an amazing effort by the kids .Initially looking at the name of the drama I thought this is going to be in Hindi and I felt it would be hard for me to follow. But when the play started I felt so glad that it was in English. I got so absorbed into the play and the time more than an hour just flipped by...

The way the kids delivered the drama was so amazing . what I liked the most in the drama was the Ghost king and little ghosts. They had such nice costumes and the way they enacted the scene was so hilarious. That was the scene I enjoyed most during the drama.
