JIO AUR JINE DO

Vatavaran’s most recent campaign is the ‘Jio Aur Jine Do’ campaign, which envisions a society of peace and compassion towards all of nature. We attempted to ingrain this concept into people through the visual media- ‘nukkad natak’. Street plays are probably the most powerfully effective way to connect to the people at a grassroots level in a de-centralised manner.

Connaught Place witnessed the first series of Jio Aur Jine Do. Treading through the blocks of CP, the acting group presented in every nukkad an ideal symbiotic relationship between man and nature. The actors became cows, dogs, parrots and donkeys, the general nature that dwellers of a metropolitan city encounter. We have caged parrots and parakeets (‘mitthu beta’) in our homes, holy cows and not-so-holy dogs on the streets . Though we encounter all these kinds of fauna on an almost daily basis, are we enlightened with their situations? It is for these reasons that Director Niloy Roy attempted to bring mankind a step closer to our earthly companions. They have an equal right and access to all the resources that the earth has, which they need. It has been man’s innate desire to conquer and consolidate every resource under his authority. The population has grown to such an extent where it is difficult to calculate the accurate number of people hogging over resources. We buy and discard, eat and discard, creating waste till it becomes impossible to manage it and we have to outsource our garbage into outer space. There are many such issues which this 20-minute play brings to our consciousness.

We at Vatavaran thank the People’s Theater Group for collaborating with us in bringing awareness to the people. At the end of the natak many people approached us with varying queries and provided their details offering to help in our campaigns. Many joined us as volunteers. We would like to thank these people who came forward, joined our family and converted the impact into an action. This play will be presented in different locations and institutions around Delhi- NCR. So, if you wish to join us in this campaign or witness any of these plays, please contact director Niloy Roy (9873878238) for further details.
