About the Play

The Blind and The Elephant is a theater group from Mumbai. A year and a half ago they created an engaging piece of theater called Ripples. The play is triggered by Diwaswapna (Gijubhai) and is partly written and partly devised and so is an interesting intersection of scripted and devised theatre. The premise is the same. A human being wakes up one morning, realises his corporate life is mechanised and driven by futile essentials. And he impulsively decides to shift base from Mumbai to a small town in Maharashtra to be a high school English teacher to redeem himself. What awaits him there is a 'typical' school and the wonderfully diverse students he encounters! Through engaging and practical methods of teaching, he provokes the students to delve deeper within themselves while encountering his own past demons in the process. The play is about those little interventions in the classroom and the little ripples that get created within the students, which can often become part of the student's skins for a lifetime.

    The intellectual storehouse that are the students and the faculty. Something we could tap into any time and come out satisfied and stimulated.

    It was in Gudalur, an amazing landscape in the Nilgiri district of Tamil Nadu, that I did my two week field immersion. The exposure to the vast share of unseen indigenous knowledge and culture of the Adivasi community in Gudalur was an exciting experience.
