IN TIMES of isolation when the lives of masses become inverted, perpetual enmity holds us to think better and best, genuine humanity is inadequate, when terror, selfishness, malice and perversion are growing up as the heedlessness weeds grow up beside the pavement, a burning question haunts us.

IN TIMES of isolation when the lives of masses become inverted, perpetual enmity holds us to think better and best, genuine humanity is inadequate, when terror, selfishness, malice and perversion are growing up as the heedlessness weeds grow up beside the pavement, a burning question haunts us.

“Shall we be able to barter theinfrastructure of the society or this very modern society shall barter our trend of thought…”. The play 'Manush Chhai' held at Bengal Club conveyed that, in this society, there are a few classes of men as well as a few demands of them. But out of these demands some duties remain ignored. Nowadays, 'Good to see', 'Good to think', 'Good to listen' or 'Good to do' are hard to accomplish.

“Will the day come-when man will live for others? This play is a small attempt to search the answers of all these serious questions,” says Chandro Gupta , director, playwright and designer of 'Manush Chhai' from the Nabanno theatre group, Kolkata while speaking to HT Lucknow Live at the 42nd Prakash Chandra Ghosh memorial full length drama competition 2005-2006.

The cast for the play included Prasenjit Das (who plays Ashok), Apurba Roy (Samar), Banaphool Ahmad (Jagadish), Ashim Biswas (Nagen), Mihir Bhattacharjee (Kartick), Chandro Gupta (Mukunda), Parikshit (Jatin), Krishnendu Saha (cop), Sandhya Bose (Bindu Masi), Niva Sarker (Rama).Gokul Chaterjee took care of the lighting, Rabin Das (music)and Chandrojeet (makeup).
