About The Play

There are three stories in the short novel ‘Suraj Ka Satwa Ghoda’ by Dr. Dharamvir Bharti: one of Jamuna, the other of Lily, and the third of Satti. All these three stories are ‘love stories,” in the words of Manik Mulla, which Manik Mulla narrated to his friends in six afternoons.

The entire story of Suraj ka Saatwa Ghoda is arranged in seven sections. On summer afternoons, Manik Mulla’s friends gather at his house, and Manik Mulla tells a story to his friends every afternoon. In the words of Manik Mulla, these are the love stories that interest most people.

In seeing and hearing these stories, love stories seem like a means of entertainment, but in reality, these are the pictures of the lower middle class in our society. Their life situations, their aspirations, their means, and their compulsions are all expressed through these stories. ‘Seven afternoons’ or ‘seven chapters,” arranged in seven chapters, are preceded by ‘upodghat,” in which the narrator of the story, Manik Mulla, is introduced.

The techniques of the story and the indications of his understanding of politics, society, psychology, etc. are also in this ‘subtext’.
