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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
