KRAFT and LitTLe tHeaTRe presented नारद झाला गारद

An exhaustive and intensive training workshop on theatre & films culminated with the champions of Kurtain Raiser Academy of Film & Theatre (KRAFT) & Little Theatre entertaining a housefull audience with their fantastic performance with the play नारद झाला गारद (Naarad Zala Gaarad) on 4 Jun 2016 at Jyotsna Bhole Auditorium, Maharashtra Cultural Center, Pune. The play was scripted by Shri Jyotiram Kadam and directed by Nameeta Wagle Girkar.

The bunch of fresh talents made the audience roll with laughter with their great dialogue delivery, punches and brought humor with the comic timings and amazed the audience with their superb performance. The most impressive thing to be mentioned here was that the crew of actors were from a diverse age group of 4 to 40 years. नारद झाला गारद being a folklore based drama it was surprising to see the flawless performance on stage where even the 4 year olds were seen displaying loud body language ( being the requirement of the script) confidently. The Hanuman was even doing somersaults on stage to ensure that the artists are put through the stress test on stage (which they passed with flying colors).

The roles were interchanged based on age of the actors. The characters of Narad, Pendya & Krishna were played by Sharvari Nagargoje (age 9) Siddhi Pandav (age14) and Sanskriti Landge (age 9) respectively. The characters of Hanuman, Bhakt Pralhad and Dhruv baal were played by Param Walke (age 6) Shourya Bhise (age 5) & Vedika Nighute (age 5) respectively. The Gavlanis, Radha and Maushi were the handsome students Shashikant Ingale, Janardhan Gode, Akshay More Patil and Avinash Baoker, draped beautifully in sarees which added fun to the play. They were supported by two beautiful gavlanis Akshaya Mankame & Hema Pande. This team of 12 artists and a percussionist beautifully crafted, designed and very well presented the play.

Demystifying thoughts to predict behavior

Much of what we don't understand about being human is simply in our heads. From those clusters of cells in our head arises the elusive, but powerful, mind. Despite our best attempts to "know ourselves," the truth is that we often know surprisingly little about our own minds, and even less about the way others think. Meet Psychologist Dr. Nitesh Kumar Jha, Clinical Research Officer at INCLEN (The International Clinical Epidemiology Network) Trust International, New Delhi, who has long sought insights into the complex mental processes that dictate human actions, and has made significant strides in lifting that veil of mystery.
