This play is set in rural Bengal. Instead of following a linear narrative, it is like a collage of different aspects of village life today. As the play goes on, we see the different ways in which villagers’ lives are affected by government policies, how they are left at the mercy of nature and witch doctors for their health. It is based on fact, not fiction. The collage comprises situations of different kinds of oppression – the oppressor is sometimes a political party leader, at others a Panchayat Pradhan, a labour contractor or a government doctor. The oppressed are the rural masses. The use of the lathi in this play lends it a unique aesthetic style. There is also a liberal use of folk tunes from different parts of India in this play.
