Chandigarh, June 13

The eighth edition of the three-day Chandigarh Theatre Festival, organised by the UT Cultural Affairs Department and Tagore Theatre Society, commenced with the staging of a Hindi play, ‘Welcome Zindagi’, at Tagore Theatre here today.

The play was staged by a group from Mumbai. Written by Sanjay Jha and directed by Tushar Joshi, the play was full of humour and satirical wit. It explores the psyche of a government employee Ashutosh, who is a miser with a peculiar mind set to postpone all his projects to the post-retirement period. 

The content of the play inspired all to live in the present without relying on future. Sparkling with catchy dialogues, the play depicted situations potential enough to sustain the inherent conflict among family members. 

Actor Sudhir Pandey shined throughout the play, besides Raj Premi, Minakshi Mani, Aditi Bhaskar, Abraham Tushar and Sampat.
