About the Play

In the times when the idea of "reverse discrimination" catches on, "Baman Bada" confronts the ideological enslavement of the people through a system of thought and practices that viciously discriminate against them under conditions of hate and endemic social disadvantages. Realising that the sectarian injustice is not an unknown entity in the polity assuming to be a major power of the future, the play unfolds that the feeling of differentiation is a grave impediment in the material as well as spiritual growth of a society as a whole
