The opening play was ‘Tomar Dake’, a Bengali drama written & directed by Suvojit Bandyopadhyay. The story revolves around the limitations human beings put on themselves under the influence of others, especially the impact of govt. and religious customs. The story has impressions of the lives of Malala Yousufzai of Pakistan and Rabindranath Tagore of Kolkatta, India.14

The play mostly focused on how the children, the future of any country, are denied books and are handed over war weapons. This dreadful practice that is currently going on in Pakistan and Syria is not only destroying the dreams of these little ones but also giving rise to terrorism and extortion.16 17

The story, as it proceeds, describes the prejudices of Taliban in Pakistan, telling Malala’s story who was shot in her head by Taliban because she wanted to promote child education in her country.3

Later, the play moves in a direction showcasing the religious terrorism and betrayal and how it is affecting women. They are still fighting for their right and justice.

This drama is thus projected against the power mongers all over the world to make them aware about the last consequence – according to Tagore’s line of thinking, breaking through the barriers of region, states and nations of the world.
