About Play : Kathputllian is based on a story by the same name by one of the well known writers of Hindi Literature - Manisha Kulshresth. The play contains Rajasthani folk music/singing and dance which makes it unique in itself. Everyone feels like a puppet (Kathputli) in the hands of society, family, relationships, love, situations, fate and time. What makes one cut the strings, what makes a person a Human, begins in the world of puppets. We often give life to puppets by pulling the strings, but what if the puppets get to tell us what to do and what not to? This play is an answer to all. Sugna's life was boring and monotonous after her marriage. Her husband Ramkihan is a puppeteer in Rajasthan. Their life was all around the puppets, music and dance but their life changes all of a sudden when Jogi the ex-lover of Sugna, who is a singer by passion, a guide by profession, enters their life. Jogi is ready to marry Sugna, Ramkishan is fighting with the whole society for Sugna, while the mother-in-law wants to throw sugna out of the house. When the villagers came to know about the illicit relationship between Jogi and Sugna, they became furious. Now the panchayat of the village is going to decide Sugna's Fate, Ram Kishan tries his level best to save Sugna, Jogi is ready to face the whole panchayat and family just to accept Sugna. But what will be Sugna's Stand? Who will she choose? The play is an answer to these questions and many more...
