Motley’s new production in their story/telling on stage ‘series – a tribute to master satirist Krishan Chander consists of selections from his celebrated works:’ Hindi ka Naya Qaida Ek Gadhe ki Aatma Katha and his famous short story Gaddha (The hole) Highly popular for many
Decades among Hindi readers from the 40s onwards, Krishan Chander’s Short stories invariably highlighted the plight of the common man in his struggle to survive. His puckish humour is highly reminiscent of the celebrated R.K. Laxman and his ‘Autobiography of a donkey’ and its sequels were huge best sellers in their time. Somewhat ignored now this production is a tribute to him and an attempt to him and an attempt to revive interest in one of India’s first Urdu Satirists.
