KSHITIJ-THE STREET PLAY SOCIETY

This year, the street play society focused on the theme “BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE”. Bringing about change in the society has been a struggle ever since humans have learned to contradict, accuse, blame and rule!The annual street play production of Gargi College, JOOTA, a political satire, introduces a person in search of change who finds a ‘shoe’ that’ll bring about the change everyone is waiting for. The person transforms into ‘Jooteshwar’, personifying the ‘Joota’ and gains the support of people to not only fight the elections, but win them too and let the ‘joota’ start the revolutionary change. The question is

‘IS THE JOOTA POWERFUL ENOUGH TO BRING THE CHANGE THAT A COMMON MAN SEEKS?’

‘IS JOOTA A SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM A COMMON MAN FACES?’

‘IS JOOTA RESPONSIBLE TO BRING THE CHANGE THAT WE SEEK?’                      

This play has been awarded with several laurels including Best play, Best Script, Best Actor and several special mentions.
