Shapla Natya Goshthi started its journey in 1982. According to the speakers, in the course of its 27 years, the cultural organisation has played a major role in staging shows in the rural area despite different constraints and financial crisis.
Theatre is a major tool in the transformation of the society and creates awareness about many social ills. The public and the cultural activists all have responsibility in this direction, speakers said.
