Play – “Satyam Shivam Sundaram (“Truth is Auspicious and Beautiful) directed by Mr. Madan Gopal

About Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was born in India on October 2, 1869. Forever committed to non-violence and truth, Gandhiji has been hailed as an apostle of peace and has inspired many of humanity’s leaders who employed non-violent resistance in their struggle against oppression and tyranny.

Satyam Shivam Sundaram

(Truth is auspicious and beautiful)

A one-act play directed by Mr. Madan Gopal

Harish, office assistant in a Government Department, aspires to become the Section Head. In an effort to get his promotion he invites his new boss, Mr. Ghosh, to dinner.

To impress the boss Harish borrows furniture, utensils and crockery from his neighbors and friends. His wife, Savitri, has received her education in Hindi but has little knowledge of the English language. Considering this as set back to his chances, Harish persuades Rajani, wife of his close friend Prakash, to act as his own wife while they entertain Mr. Ghosh. Rajani reluctantly agrees. Harish also prevails upon Savitri to act as a maid. The stage is now set for impressing Mr. Ghosh. In the middle of this arrives Harish’s father, Mohan Lal, who lives in another city and is here to attend the meeting of Gandhi Sachhai Sansthan, an organization dedicated to spreading Gandhi’s message of truthfulness. This complicates the matters, but fortunately Mohan Lal leaves for his meeting before the arrival of Mr. Ghosh.

Mr, Ghosh is duly impressed with the arrangement. He is also pleasantly surprised to find that Harish’s wife is well educated, cultured, and modern; something quite contrary to what he has been led to believe by others in his office. He is also quite impressed by the quiet efficiency and demeanor of Savitri and wants to retain her as a maid in his household. Now the house of cards starts crumbling.

Will Harish get his promotion? Will truth prevail? How will the whole messy situation work out; these are things worth witnessing rather than being described.
