This book has three plays within - Hole In Heaven...!, Stubborn Stone...!, and Rebellious Rivulet...! Hole In Heaven...!, was staged in the Auditorium of Vishwa Jyoti Gurukul Varanasi, on the 'Philosophers' Day. It enabled the audience to reflect on the perennial theme of Good and Evil. The play is an amalgamation of traditionalism and modernism; romanticism and realism; history and mystery; prose and poetry. (Alok Nag, Dean of Studies, Vishwa Jyoti Gurukul, Varanasi) Blended with philosophical musings and Greek mythological stir, Stubborn Stone...!, has fascinated me. It is a play with melodious dialogues, incorporating in its realm religious values and secular outlooks. As a director of this drama, I would say, I had absorbed the story and accommodated it according to the taste of people from different walks of life. The performance of the actors left the audience spell-bound. (Dr. Ajesh Thomas, Director of the Play) Rebellious Rivulet...!, is a play based on the theme of breaking one's boundaries for the sake of selfless service of other creatures. This play was performed at St. Paul's School, Bijainagar, Rajasthan by the students of the same school. Popular music-bits, songs, and dances were added to it, as interludes, in order to make the play audience-friendly. As a consequence, both educated as well as illiterates, in and around the township, enjoyed it. (Sejal M.S.A, Voice-Organizer of the Play)
