4. Rhyme and Reason
Written by Bhishma Sahni, Hindi play Kabira Khada Bazaar Mein is a classic of the contemporary stage. Featuring Kabir’s poetry, it has always shown how a simple man, who witnesses years of injustice, prejudice, and blind faith, turned into a mystic. Many modern-day concerns about caste and India’s syncretic structure feature in the play. Originally the music was done by Panchanan Pathak. The same music has now been reinterpreted by Delhi-based band Dastaan Live and playwright MK Raina. At Stein Auditorium, 7.30 onwards. Tickets: Rs 200. Contact bookmyshow.com
