Indulge in sibling revelry
What's the role of an elder brother in one's life? Should he be seen as bully, friend or guide? In the comedy Bade Bhai Saheb, a student of class nine studying in a boarding school is joined by his much younger brother. The elder brother has lofty aspirations for his sibling. The younger brother obeys the commands of his brother, mostly out of fear. But while the elder brother has failed consecutively for two years in the same class, the younger one performs better. An adaptation of Munshi Premchand's famous short story. November 27, 7 pm, LTG Auditorium, Mandi House. For further details, call 9313770131.
