The Making of Naari

IMG_0217


When my name was suggested for a play based on the plight of women in India today, I was a little hesitant because the last time I had taken a part in a play was when I was doing my B.Ed. from C.I.E. Akshay however took a lot of pains in putting up the play together, and finally the play when performed on the 26th. of January by teachers of the Senior Programme was a success. The success of any play however is the result of numerous rehearsals, and the number of blunders that have to be corrected and ironed out. Without saying more, I have pasted a few photographs which tell the story of the making of the play, “Naari”:

The role of frightening Anjali Ma’am took a lot of practice. My shout often ended up being funnier than frightening!

Ah! The Marionettes,Parruck Sir handled the strings, Varsha Ma’am had a bad throat, Ritu Ma’am was full of energy, Khalida Ma’am and Balwinder Ma’am

Making a train at the end of each rehearsal helped all of us wind up!
