    1. yes it is surely a part of my curriculum but it lingers in your mind The play is short and direct and places you amidst of a family drama You feel like the Shridhar or Lalitha among them and you feel pity for the wives you also get to see how advertising has been provoked by the lives of the male characters and what women have become to them.

    2. Unveils the hypocritical Indian self not everyone offense intended.Dattani, as in all his works,dares to talk about the taboo subjects in Indian context.
