Brief Candle: Three Plays by Mahesh Dattani
Brief Candle: Three Plays by Mahesh Dattani
Description
Back of the Book

Brief candle three plays brings together the most recent work of Sahitya Akademi Award winner Mahesh Dattani as he continues to explore subjects that need to be addressed but are relentlessly brushed under the carpet of middle class morality incest, gender bias and death.

The title play is set in a hospital ward where terminally ill patients put p an energetic farce in memory of their friend who died of cancer. The blurring of lines between their romp and the events of their own lives leads to revelations that are both tragic and life affirming. In the radio play the girl who touched the stars Bhavna now an astronaut ready to take off on a mission into out space reflects on her past in this moment of glory only to confront the bitter truths she has tried to ignore all her life. The fragile fabric of familial relations is ripped apart in thirty days in September when memories of a traumatic past return to haunt a mother and her daughter.

Playful and poignant devastating and redemptive these critically acclaimed plays lay bare the far reaching consequences of the choices we make confirming Dattani as one of India’s foremost dramatists.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
