Yesteday we saw a Marathi play ‘Jyache Shevat Gode’. We went with an expectation that it would be a comedy light play since it was casting Nirmiti Sawant.But in contrast it was about Death.As if reading our expressions the characters said well before the play started that “We know that you would be thinking why a play on death and when we are alive we don’t want to think about death…so why” and they told us to watch the play for an answer 🙂
As the play progressed we realized why it is made like it has been. The characters presented a very different outlook of death.
People always think that it’s a symbol of sadness, loneliness,going away and crying.While life is full of problems,it goes on and there are so many heart breaks through out our lives,ups and downs..Whereas death is a one time act and it finishes all the problems and puts a full stop to every bad thing happening to our lives…inspite of which we cherish life and hate death. Death and Life and twins but two extremes.
Once the person dies is the only time when everyone thinks good about him/her.All the praises are being showered after death. People only remember good when the person dies..while alive people around don’t miss a chance to remember what all wrong did the person do…So,death is good..you get praises..people stand for you..
The play showcased few mini acts to present death in different cases. All in all a good experience.A new concept.Nicely done play.
Any ways,if we actually think again..what they presented is right. But we still love our lives..we can’t imagin that we are dying..nobody wants to or likes to know the time of his/her death.No matter how many problems we face in life we want to live.It’s so precious isn’t it? Death comes and takes it away in fraction of seconds…
What is your reaction to this???
