‘The so much memorable literary occasion of my event . . . Govardhan is that universal guy who seeks justice from heritage, from time and society and is punished. Govardhan is everyman. he's a survivor and his tale is everyman’s story.’ — Mahasveta Devi

Halfway via his recognized play on injustice, Andher Nagari Choupat Raja, Bharatendu Harishchandra stops: what's the responsibility of a writer—to depict truth because it exists or to undertaking what it may truly be? not able to come to a decision, Bharatendu abandons the play and releases Govardhan, the most personality who's unjustly condemned to demise, from drama to actual lifestyles.

The noose nonetheless hangs over Govardhan’s head as he walks out of legal as a consultant of all people who are sufferers of the ruthlessness and absurdity of justice. He questions everybody he encounters and increases a hurricane which profits momentum as he trips via area and time. The traces among truth and fiction blur as a number of individuals from mythology, background and literature subscribe to him, a few asking questions, like him, and others opposing them.

As we keep on with Govardhan’s meanderings, we become aware of that his trip won't ever finish, for with the passage of time he'll locate extra areas to go to and extra humans to satisfy, whilst the ubiquitous noose tightens round his neck. eventually, there could be no get away for the Govardhans of this PBI - international.

Anand’s innovative game of Govardhan’s existence after his unencumber from legal keeps the farcical nature of Bharatendu’s paintings, even though it strikes clear of the comfy finishing of Andher Nagari Choupat Raja. It offers a terrifying portrait of the cruelty and irrationality of the PBI - global which we contend as civilized.
