JAMMU, July 9:  Natrang staged Hindi play ‘Sarkari Daftar Ka Ek Din’ in its weekly theatre series,

Sunday Theatre today at its Studio Theatre here in Kachi Chawni, here.

The play has been written by Laxmikant Vaishnav and was directed by Neeraj Kant. The play

portrayed a real life situation of a ‘Sarkari Daftar’ (Government Office) and highlighted the

vices in a very intelligent manner.

 The play was assisted by Sushane Dulloo and the publicity of the play was designed by

Vanshika Pandoh.

The play opens in a Government Office where all the employees are shown working in their

own styles. As they have job security, no one bothers to exercise punctuality; on the contrary,

they have their own reasons to modify the rules and regulations as per their personal


The common vices like red-tapeism, nepotism, favouritism, corruption, absenteeism and

sycophancy which are generally associated with such offices are prominently shown in the

play in a very genuine manner.

The office has a peon who listens to none as no one can remove him from his permanent job

and moreover no one, even the boss has courage to say anything to him as he has a lot of

secrets of theirs and thus exploits them at appropriate times.

 Everyone in the office has his/her weakness and each one is busy exploiting that just to

implement a personal agenda. The only person who musters respect from this stubborn peon

is an official who is a relative of a minister who works fearlessly as being a relative of a

Minister, as no one could harm him in any manner.

On the top of it, the Head of the Department, who was supposed to maintain integrity and

punctuality of the office himself, shirks from his duties and remains absconding from the

office to cater to his personal merry making engagements.

Young artists who performed in the play included Mihir Gujral, Chirag Anand, Aadesh Dhar,

Abhimanyu Choudhary, Sumit Singh Bandaral and Sheryaar Salaria. Lights were operated by

Neeraj Kant whereas the music of the play was scored by Sheryaar Salaria. The presentations

were done by Mahikshit Singh.
