Vijaydaan Detha’s short story staged ay Ravindra Bhavan

Monday, 18 January 2021 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

Vijaydaan Detha’s short story ‘Tido Rao’ was staged at Ravindra Bhavan here on Sunday.Directed by Sadat Bharati, the play was performed under Gamak series of performances.  Play was based on the prime character, Tido Rao who was a lethargic natured man but due to his good fortune, he got famous and known as a saint.

In this play, Rido Rao becomes does not pay attention towards karma, as he gets famous. Tido's words seems so accurate that people begin to consider this words of miracle and have faith in it, due to which Tido, with the help of his words, takes the reins of governance on the strength of superstition.

Tido Rao is a Rajasthani folk tale by Vijaydan Detha and hence the entire backdrop was kept simple yet colourful. To add to the Rajasthani flavor, the language and the presentation was kept Rajasthani.

Tido Rao also is a satire on society as how people take situations in their favour and turn any man into a saint. In some way or the other, the play highlights the contemporary situation of the society. It was a fully fledged fun show where the audience was glued to their seats till the end. Besides, the young artists gave splendid performance with much confidence and enthusiasm.
