The Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre, Dhaka, celebrated its fourth anniversary with the staging of Tagore's comedy “Sheshrokkha” by theatre troupe Natyajan at the Main Auditorium of the Bangladesh National Museum on March 14.
Sandeep Chakravorty, Deputy High Commissioner, High Commission of India, Dhaka and Aly Zaker, distinguished cultural activist of Bangladesh graced the occasion with their presence.
The play “Sheshrokkha” -- that literally means “Happy Ending” is a romantic comedy about three friends Chandrakanta, Binod and Gadai who, in a comedy of errors, face a series of confusing situations emanating from mistaken identities. The entertaining play ended with a collective relief for all the protagonists. Theatre troupe Natyajan, founded in 1997, regularly stages plays in Dhaka and all around Bangladesh. Natyajan also collaborates with Kolkata-based drama groups such as Gandhar, Sanglap and Lokokristi.
The Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre in Dhaka, since its inception on March 11, 2010, has since become a hub for multifarious cultural activities ranging from presentation of music of different genres and dance forms, to plays to poetry reading to art exhibitions to film retrospectives, to name just a few.
