Manav Kaul's ‘Gandhi Park' will be back on the stage this Thursday. The play revolves around three people in a park, their fight over three benches and their conversations with each other. It explores the issue of the eventual displacement of human beings due to socio-economic, socio-political and cultural reasons. Another interesting English play being mounted is ‘Misfits', a stand-up comedy featuring Anuvab Pal with Aditi Mittal (two of Mumbai's funniest comedians) on stories from contemporary India. Then we have a Kuchipudi recital by Sarvani Yadavalli and a Hindustani vocal recital by Ramneek Kaur.
