Draupadi: A Musical Tale Starring Himani Shivpuri and Rakesh Bedi

Kasturi posted on 22nd January

What is it?

Draupadi is a play that will star Himani Shivpuri and Rakesh Bedi. It is a musical, with love, land, war and peace as themes that run along in the narrative of this powerful, historical woman.

Who is it for?

Theater afficionados, of course. We would also recommend it to anyone who hasn't made a plan yet for Republic Day.

Why should I go for it?

Draupadi has been a celebrated {though controversial} character from the Mahabharata. Many myths, conventions and perceptions have been associated with her and perpetrated through time and space {and having multiple versions doesn't help at all}. This play takes excerpts from the story of Draupadi as known to everybody and adds imaginative sequences that bring out the real essence of association between Draupadi and today's women.

Anything else?

Look out for both Himani Shivpuri and Rakesh Bedi, whose excellent stage presence makes this a play worth going for again and again.
