Vande Mataram- The Significant Unknown on 18th September 2016 at ICCR

Rotary Club of Calcutta Mahanagar has talent unlimited. Truly speaking we have honchos in almost every field. To sight the most recent was the Drama “The Significant Unknown” on 18.09.2016 conceptualized and scripted by none other than Rtn. Pradeep Rawat. He not only has a flawless flair in writing but is also blessed with the gift of the gab and with unmatched skills in creativity.

Post Battle of Plassey, the British atrocities on Indians reached peak of bigotry. Our own land lords and Jagirdars become subservient to the British lordship and the common man become the victim of ghoulish torture. This continued to enrage the people of our country and that is where the revolution began.

Capturing the said cause and effect, the drama started with the melodious ‘Mahishasur Mardini’ depicting the reign of the power of truth over any evil. Nina Gupta, Ritu Choudhury and Neelam Singhvi rolled out an excellent livid performance with their actions and expressions depicting every word of the lyrics- ‘Jai Jai he Mahishasur Mardini….’. The choreographer was Suman Saraogi and direction of the play was by Kartikey. This was followed by a recalling of the path of independence which was carved with some of the less prominent but defiant dare devils like Bina Das, Pritilata Wadedar and Kanaklata Barua filling us with awe, inspiration, confidence and courage to yank off any can of worms. The amateur artists Pramila Dugar, Kavita Biyani, Chitra Agarwal, Harkesh Gupta, Pradeep Rawat, Vinay Agarwal, Anil Bothra, Raakesh Jain, Sanjay Dugar, Vinod Mahipal, Shilpa Kedia, Rupalekha Singh and others put in astonishing performance.

every member ruled the show.

To mention a few, the roles played by Harkesh Gupta, Rashi Mehta, Sudha Rawat, Pushpa Bansal, Rina Bhandari, Pramila Dugar&Pradeep Rawat left members
spell bound.

The building enjoyment and excitement was escalated many times by the tune, music, singing and lyrics – ‘Ae mere watan ke logon’ sung by none other than our dear , melodious – Aparna Biyani. Our great singers – Dipak and Dr. Udey , along with Aparna put together their heart and soul to make the show marvelous. The ‘Antakshri’ was once again conducted by PRID
