Munshi Premchand’s Do Behnien
“Witty characterization of two sisters pursuing their separate lives. See the two clash in the inimitable, humorous, sarcastic style and language of Premchand. It's unique adaptation to fit into today’s world maintaining the era and style of Premchand with a relevant & pertaining question ' Where is Happiness?' ”
Harishankar Parsai’s Anshan –
Anshan or hunger strike has deep roots in the Indian society and Indian psyche. In addition to Gandhi, various others have used the hunger strike option during the Indian independence movement and post independence also. But if one does hunger strike to usurp the other’s wife? Sounds crazy – isn’t it. Yes, Bannu is keeping fast unto death to get his love interest, married Savitri. In this hunger strike, he gets support from various Baba , Swami and social & political leaders and his hunger strike becomes a national issue. This is a social and political satire that makes a mockery of hunger strike and the system.
