New Delhi : A drama based mostly on the life and wrestle of people artist Bhikhari Thakur "Bhikhari Nama" was staged on the Bharat Rang Mahotsav organized by the National School of Drama within the nation's capital Delhi. In the drama, "Launda Nach", which is included within the conventional people arts of Bihar, made an enormous dent. However, many questions had been raised on the social evil of caste discrimination by this drama.

The musical drama directed by Jainendra Dost was staged by the beggars Thakur Rangmandal Training and Research Center. <! –

                 The play depicts the struggles of beggars Thakur from childhood to puberty and the ethnic prejudices and struggles confronted by them for his or her livelihood.

Jainendra needed to inform his story to the world after doing his PhD with reference to "Launda Nach" and after figuring out the legacy of Thakur. "Launda dance" is that type of stage artwork through which males dance and sing within the garb of girls. However, these days this artwork is taken into account vulgar.

The director expressed his temper and stated that I began compiling occasions and tales concerning the beggar from delivery to establishing a dance troupe. I put these occasions so as earlier than writing them as drama. The actual problem right here was learn how to current Thakur's life and work. We discovered the reply in our Launda dance custom. We made the music, music, dance, theatrical and comedy collectively, making everybody a drama.

The friend stated that Thakur sang songs in entrance of the viewers critically, describing points like ill-treatment of widows, dowry, trafficking of ladies, caste discrimination. (Thakur) was 100 years forward of his time. It is gloomy that there are social evils even today, however they are going to at all times be related.
