borders more secure and people’s life there more stable” sums up the enormous achievement that has been sealed in Dhaka Of course that India has had a determined partner in the Sheikh Hasina regime

pitched a tent with a banner that reads ‘anishchit kaleen dharna (indefinite dharna)’ Rani Khera was chosen as a dumping ground after orders were issued to shut down Ghazipur and Bhalswa At the forefront of the Rani Khera protest are women — local Jats who live in nearby villages as well as Purvanchali migrants who have settled in the colonies While some of them occasionally run back home to cook and clean feed cattle or look after their children others have stopped cooking or sending their children to school “Yeh Raniyon ka khera hai Hum yahan ki raniyan hain Till we are alive nobody can make this a dumping ground” said Krishna Devi a septuagenarian from a nearby village who was among 200 women gathered at the site on Tuesday morning “We have been sitting here since Sunday I go home for four hours in the afternoon to finish cooking and feeding animals and then come back We all sit here overnight singing bhajans and kirtans to keep ourselves awake We are not afraid of anything” she added Vimla Devi another local has eight grandchildren None of them have gone to school since Monday “My whole family is sitting here This dharna is the most important thing right now If this becomes a dumping site children’s future will be ruined” she said The issue is even more grave for Purvanchali residents of Yogiraj Puram colony which is closest to the site “Our house is barely 200

to Diwali every year Shivaji Mandir in Dadar wears a festive look as people queue up at the box office and new plays are premiered This season for Marathi plays goes on till January However this November Mumbai’s most popular venue for staging of Marathi plays resembles an old abandoned building says veteran make-up artist Chander Patil “In the days since PM Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes business in Marathi theatre has taken a hit As a result the premieres of a few plays scheduled between November and December have been put on hold and many regular shows have been cancelled” says Patil who has been forced to stay at home as the market is down Vijay Kenkre is among those whose play premieres have been postponed His production titled Teen Paayachi Sharyat (Three-legged race) was to open on November 19 but has been tentatively rescheduled for first half of December “Since Marathi theatre largely runs on cash economy we are currently unable to pay the backstage workers and also the actors who work on daily wages Our ticket sales too have plummeted because people don’t have cash to spend” says Kenkre adding that the reason Marathi theatre hasn’t yet moved to card or online transaction is because a large part of their audience are walk-in daily wagers Like Kenkre Mangesh Kadam has also pushed the premiere of his play Chada which was scheduled to open early November Although unsure of how it will do even now he opened it last weekend “Close to 15 plays premiere in this season every year It’s the season for cultural events Also by opening now the producers can send their plays for various competitions that begin in January” explains Prasad Kambli head of Akhil Bhartiya Marathi Natya Parishad governing body for Marathi theatre He adds that the number will be down to seven or so this year Kambli says overall business is down by nearly 80 per cent Some producers are attempting to migrate to other modes of payment such as mobile wallets or cards “But that will take time Also it might alienate the audience that doesn’t have bank accounts or cards” points out Patil Last week Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis announced that the old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 will be accepted by venues as rent The move is an attempt to aid the crisis being faced by Marathi theatre Kambli believes it will help theatrewallahs who may have old currency sitting with them from previous shows However the implementation is yet to begin “It’s stuck somewhere in the red tape The government resolution has not reached the theatres yet for them to accept old currency” he says Kenkre adds that this initiative will also aid only a handful of theatres which are governed by the BMC as the others accept rent in cheque or demand draft
