The story of a day becomes the history of a revered poet-saint’s lifetime when GoswamiTulsidas visits Planet Earth for 24 hours and shares invaluable vignettes from his fascinating life in this brilliant mono-actwritten, composed, directed and enacted by the reputed repository of varied talent - Shekhar Sen.
This 5-century-old tale of a destitute orphan who became immortalized as one of the greatest poets of India comes to the audience in an engaging arrangement of meaningful anecdotes and evergreen compositions rendered in Sen’s soulful voice. You thrill to the tale of this inspired reformer whose ire at the exploitation in the name of religion of ignorant have-nots found lyrical expression inRam- Charit-Manas - an Awadhi version of the Ramayan written especially for the masses and sung joyfully to date by devotees. As the dramatic narration gives us well-crafted glimpses of Tulsi’s life and work, 52 musical segments enliven the script, oftentempting us to sing along those much-loved lyrics.
Acclaimed on both the national and international stage, Shekhar Sen’sTulsiis a memorable must-watch production and an aesthetic reminder that in a world rampant with fundamentalist rage, the pen can indeed be mightier than the sword!
