LAXMIKANTA
About LAXMIKANTA

Our new production is "LAXMIKANTA", written and directed by Sri Parimal Tribedi. It is a true story of an old man who has great influence on the writer director Sri ParimalTribedi and encourages him to escort his message to the present generation. The play questions the necessity of democracy and its true existence in India. Laxmikanta, the central figure of the play, makes an attempt to find an answer of the most controversial question regarding the necessity of democracy in India.

Laxmikanta, a village quack, can diagnose any disease only by feeling the nerve. He is the only help for the villagers. The old and experienced Laxmikanta dreams to invent a medicine which can cure all the diseases if taken once. One day he becomes successful in inventing such medicine and wishes to prescribe the medicine to all the diseased people. But he faces terrible hindrances from different counters. The intelligentsia arise the questions of Indian economy. Debates, controversies, arguments bring forth nothing but questions the necessity of democratic process which has now become the only medium to choose the leader and not to rear the people. There is an effort to suppress Laxmikanta's truthful voice either in form of political threat or allurement. In his life time fight, Laxmikanta develops his own philosophy and makes an attempt to pave the way for the next generation on whom the future of the country lies.

In the play Laxmikanta represents the voice of the people who have been trod, suppressed and underestimated for years. He sees the world with open eyes and feels that the society should be reformed to make it a better world where our successors will live peacefully and will have their own saying.

It's a full act play with Laxmikanta as its central figure. It has a pastoral setting. The play depicts the social follies and foibles. It mocks the master class and speaks for the underdogs. The play is an attempt to make the world a better place.
