Jashn-e-Qalam- A storytelling session by Actor Vicky Ahuja

Students of Grade VIII to XII were delighted to attend "Jashn-e-Qalam", an engaging theatrical performance put up for them in the school on 6th August 2018. As part of the storytelling session, Mr. Vicky Ahuja, a Film and TV actor, who has worked in films like Veer-Zaara, 1920, Life in a Metro and many more enacted stories from classic Hindi Literature without the use of extra props or costumes. The talented actor put up two plays, Munshi Premchand's Bade Bhaisahab and Harishankar Parsai’s Chand Per Inspector Matadin. While the former was an exploration of responsibility, sibling dynamics and the place and importance of elders in our life, the latter was a dark comedy and a satire on the Indian Police force. With these vastly differing themes, Mr. Ahuja captured the hearts and imagination of children and left them thinking on the themes and spellbound through his dialogue delivery and enactment.
