In Patliputra Ashok discovers that there is a deep-seated conspiracy by Mahanand of Kaling, who is one of the descendants of Dhananand, the erstwhile king of Magadh. Mahanand is suspected of engineering the untimely deaths of princes Sushim, Ripudaman and Sukirti. Why was Mahanand relentlessly influencing and goading Kaling to attack the mighty Magadh? Was the war inevitable? The play is a new historical perspective on the great king Ashok. It tries to give an insight into the psyche of a misunderstood regent accursed to become a king by the whims of destiny. Bangalore firstname.lastname@example.org false MM/DD/YYYYBook Now

But even as one attempts to travel inward, the outer world and its chaos can be dominating. How does a woman navigate these apparently contrasting worlds? Should she ask the women of the past or those that stand around her today? Should she question the Gods or ask her Goddess? Who, What and Where is her Goddess? Manoeuvring through the worlds of real and fictitious women, in questions that you or I would ask of these women are questions that we must answer ourselves. Everytime, one circles back to the very beginning, finding a newer perspective. A Goddess’ Dream is that space of awakening for each one of us. Bangalore email@example.com false MM/DD/YYYYBook Now

Fact #2: Love is measured linearly merely because we experience time linearly. Love in the Cholera of Time is the story of 2 individuals who exist in different eras but fall in love nevertheless, in the in-betweens of time. This aberration puts the jobs and lives of 4 Time Gods in danger, whose job it is to keep time in its own place. This puts into motion strategies that could change the very nature of time. The play is a sharp & funny deliberation on love, loneliness, science and the industrialised weaponisation of time. Now whether the Time Gods' efforts to keep time understandable, linear and tear free or not, you'll just have to find out for yourself, won't you?
