Kolkata-audio-play

Acclaimed director Kaushik Ganguly is the person who presented this effort. Relationships break when we fail to communicate. Though we have so many digital ways of keeping in touch with each other, yet we often are not able to communicate with each other. How can you define real communication? Is it the way in which we communicate digitally or in the way we contact with our words and actions?

Composer-Indraadip-Dasgupta

The play is about two lovers who start writing to each other about forty years ago. They could have met each other personally but they did not. This kept alive the charm and they could revisit it whenever they wished.

Debshankar Haldar and Raya Bhattacharya enthralled the audience and kept them hooked to their seats!!
