Raja ebong Annanya_August 26, 2012

When Prachyanat performs ‘Raja ebong Annanya’ upstage, some of the audiences say, ‘they have raped Tagore’s writing with this play’, some say, ‘what did Tagore had to do with all these things happening to contemporary world politics…??’, some even say that this play is a bullshit and nonsense!….They get the feeling that they have read a lot of Rabindranath Tagore’s writings from their childhood and they never found that I haany of his writing could be represented like this any way!!

I haven’t read Rabindranath Tagor’s writing ‘a lot’…But, on the basis of the few I have read, very personally, I think it is always hard to understand Rabindranath Tagore’s writings, and it is even harder to interpret ….There are meanings beyond the meanings we get….

Everytime I see the play, I get more and more, newer and newer understanding of the play, of every act , of every line, every character…and then I get the feeling that Rabindranath Tagore was a very prudent, yet modern writer at the same time who wrote such way that each of his writing goes beyond time-place and even person!…
