Nalandaway’s AAA – Alibaba and Forty police

August 2, 2010

Alibaba and Forty police – the last event held as a part of Nalandaway’s Art, arattai and arpattam yesterday. It’s a stage play with a unique, funny concept I can say.

Alibaba and forty thieves was a story we all know. Now they have given a twist to that legendary story. It is a very novel idea. You will find when you read below.

The story takes place in an Arab country. Alibaba is a police here and there are 40 police under him. They are working for the government which is so corrupted. Monarchy prevails there. Now opposition party lists down the irregularities in this government. As always the ruling party rejects everything saying many big things happened. But they themselves get bewildered when opposition points out that ‘Moon is being stolen’. And they call it as moon corruption. Now the leader of the ruling party orders Alibaba to find the person who steals the moon. So there they start their quest of finding moon stealer in hilarious ways. They suspect the person who steals anything in white colour, the person who steals anything in round shape, the person who steals only from the top and then they suspect Neil Armstrong also 😉 And at last the wife of the leader says that wherever corruption exists, the moon will start fading by itself 😀

And there are about 70+ kids performed this play. Each done their part quite well and considering it’s a little more than an hour play, the continuation is amazing. There is no mix-up. Surely a lot of work would have gone behind the background. The settings on the stage were amazing. Applause to everybody worked on that.

There are lot of contemporary things shown in this play. Policemen eating from the nearby hotels without paying money, the father tries to give nation to his son and his sole aim for his daughter was to get her married(the song related to that was funny), free bulbs given away to make the people forget about Moon corruption and greediness of the ruler.

This play was performed by kids from juvenile homes and the happiness they had when they completed that play is infectious. Bless them!!!

Thanks to Nalandaway for supporting those kids and showing a world of possibilities and happiness. As with every good thing, this event also came to an end by Sunday. But they will be back by next year 🙂

    Now that’s an interesting interpretation, Beta (I hope you don’t mind my calling you beta, because if you are still studying you must be younger than Vicky and Joy.)

    kanagu: Welcome here Sir 🙂 🙂 I am finished studying but still young enough for you to call me beta 🙂 🙂 And I didn’t written this story… its done by a bunch of team lead by director Brahmma… 🙂 🙂 All the credits to them.. 🙂
