Asghar Wajahat's powerful Human Saga directed by Dinesh Thakur with lyrics by Nida Fazli and music by Kuldip Singh is the story of two communities, who have suffered first-hand horrors of partition and still have the strength and humanity to rise above petty hatred. Jis Lahore Nahi Dekhya set in the bygone era of partition is very much a play of our times. While it recreates an era of nostalgic charm, after more than 300 shows, it has been able to successfully put across the important message of brotherhood which goes beyond the evil politician and fanatic to make a difference to the common man.
In the light of the spate of the recent terror attacks globally, it has become even more imperative to drive home the message of ‘tolerance and mutual respect’ to prevent the birth of future terrorists. We need to continually remind ourselves that Lines may divide countries, but they cannot divide Human beings.
The play stars Preeta Mathur Thakur, Aman Gupta, Atul Mathur, SC Makhija, Rohan Shroff, Shankar Iyer, Ajay Chourey, Meena Vaibhav, Ashish Saleem, Mridanjali Rawal and Vinay Lathwal.
Watch the play on 30th December, 7 PM at NCPA.
