Bor­der Dis­putes

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE -

The long- stand­ing bor­der dis­pute be­tween Ma­ha­rash­tra and Kar­nataka has in­spired vi­o­lent protests, po­lit­i­cal ag­i­ta­tions and reams of lit­er­a­ture. Now, the fight be­tween the states over ar­eas such as Bel­gaum and Nipani has ar­rived on the Marathi stage with a play called Zalaach Pahije. Pro­duced by Ma­ha­rash­tra Kalanidhi, a body formed to pro­mote Marathi theatre, the play delves into the prob­lems faced by the res­i­dents of th­ese dis­puted ar­eas. The two- act play is set in the court of an erst­while ruler- politi­cian and the dis­pute is brought to the fore by his daugh­ter’s fi­ancé, forc­ing the king’s young daugh­ter to join the ag­i­ta­tion. The script is pep­pered with ref­er­ences to mod­ern day po­lit­i­cal events and anec­dotes. The date and venue of the play are yet to be de­cided. Log on to ma­ha­rash­trakalanidhi. com
