title attracts attention the piece itself only skims the surface of arguments put forward by staunch believers of secularism who express their fears about a possible BJP government dominated by Narendra Modi and under the influence of the RSS One may be willing to concede that “secularism” will not die completely because of democratic systems the Constitution and a strong higher judiciary But the very fact that such systems were subverted during the Emergency which lasted for nearly two years is worrying A similar or even stronger bid for power cannot be ruled out But this very anxiety

new world of thrill and suspense “It is a very special play for me very close to my heart We have seen all kind of plays we have seen social satire philosophical plays and all kind of genres What we haven’t tried in Hindi theatre is a thriller The very first point of excitement for me was that I am doing a thriller which is new for the Indian audience “While the story is set in Kashmir it is not
