This book hijacked my time away from an already loaded reading shelf Picked it when it was raining heavily, and the title felt apt One of those instances when the book finds you :)A short play divided into three acts, about the life of a budding poet Kalidas More so about his lover Mallika, devoting her emotions and in effect her whole life.Easy flowing dialogues, rich language, conflicting characters emotions are among the things I enjoyed most Hope to see its enactment someday.Recommended for Hindi literature fans. Lovely Brilliant depiction of Kalidasa's (perceived) life Equally brilliant depiction of human nature I will see its rendering on stage sometime (I have seen parts of it in other plays). This classic threeact play by Mohan Rakesh is perhapsaptly described as आषाढ़ के तीन दिन: because each of the three acts is set on a day of the monsoon months of aashaadh, several years apart The setting is a single one: the home of a poor widow named Ambika, who lives with her daughter Mallika Ambika, Mallika, and the man Mallika loves—a love that she equates with भावना (emotion), much to the disgust of her cynical andworldlywise mother—the poet Kalidas, are the three main characters of this play, with a fourth, a man named Vilom, acting as the catalyst in several instances The story of Aashaadh Ka Ek Din is simple enough: it begins on a stormy day in aashaadh, when a playful, joyous Mallika, wet from the rain after a rendezvous with her beloved Kalidas, comes home to a stern Ambika, who disapproves of Mallika’s relationship with Kalidas Mallika teasingly keeps putting off her mother’s scolds Their conversation—and the entire life of the village—is disrupted by the arrival of a royal messenger who brings news: Kalidas, thanks to his already considerable fame and talent, has been appointed the Royal Poet, the राजकवि It a huge honour, and Mallika is both happy for her beloved, and sad because he will go away to Ujjayini… but Kalidas intends to refuse the offer A few years later, again in aashaadh, again in Ambika’s house And then, years later—another aashaadh, another day In Ambika’s house, where circumstances have undergone a sea change And people, too have changed.Aashaadh Ka Ek Din is primarily a play about human nature, about the dynamics between people, the way our personalities and our emotions govern the decisions we make And the farreaching consequences of those decisions, not just on our lives, but on the lives of others It’s a play about ambition and greed, about love and simplicity and sacrifice There are the props, which act as evidence of not just their own decay, but the decay, too, of their owner There is the growing ennui, the palpable sense of detachment And there is the motif of the भोजपत्र—the ‘bark paper’ which Mallika prepares for Kalidas, hoping that he will someday write his magnum opus on them: that is especially poignant, growing evenso in the last act Another aspect of the play that I found memorable was the satire in it The two court ladies, Rangini and Sangini, who come to this corner of the province wanting to study its life, and are vastly disappointed to find that there is nothing new, nothing exotic here Or the officers who precede a royal visitor to Ambika’s house with the express purpose of ensuring that it is comfortable enough And who, after hectic debate, assure themselves that they have made it suitable for the royal guest—without having done anything except talk. I have had a strange experience with whichever Hindi Upanyaas I have read so far This is although a play but the experience has remained the same Hindi writers have a penchant for 'Vedana' angst Their works intentionally or otherwise have a deep emotional character attached to it, which not only makes them realistic but very touchy and sometimes painful I think generalising is unfair, however classical Hindi authors like Mohan Rakesh, perhaps due to the colonial nature of their surroundings when they wrote, were able to embed the similar feelings of longing, revolt, pain and anguish as were then present during the masses Ashad ka ek din is a play that I can write off easily by merely labelling it as a stupid story of a naive idealistic girl and an inferiority complex stricken guy who's trying to escape from his past Their mutual love and stupidity concludes in weakness and wastage of human will, capacity and reader's time.However, that's precisely the point of this play just like many others falling in this genre It's not really about the story In works like these, story is not the end instead it is a tool to present theimportant, prime important characters and their multicolored hues of their psyche Story is just the tapered stone pillar on which beautiful Arabesque carvings of the characters have been inscribed The importance of the play is the character of Mallika which undergoes her periods of longing for Kalidas along with the uncertainties plaguing her mind, the anguish of wait, loneliness, and her seemingly hopeless life It's a tragedy because by and by the reader realises that these horrors become true eventually and the play ends in an absurd manner It leaves the reader in a perturbed mood A certain feeling of helplessnessI personally felt a deep urge to tear off the book and all its pages, burn them and shout to vent out something that was choking inside But I think that's exactly what the author wanted in the first place to bring about such a sense of disturbance, despair and anguish inside the reader as is felt by his characters I think this exactly is the brilliance of this play.As I started my review, I think Hindi classical authors have this capacity to get inside your mind, hold it sternly within their hands through their words and shake it tremendously to make it shed all the redundant rust that we've allowed to get deposit Ajneya, Bhubaneshvar, Manto, Mohan Rakesh , these people were grand geniuses of their time and even today the relevance of their compositions is so valid that it can literally hit you hard like a hammer smashed on your head without warning. Its a very pleasing play on love and Yearning There has always been a choice for most of the people Choice of following passion, choice of what they want in life, Choice of love However,destiny is unpredictable, it gives you one thing and snatches other from you One has to take his/her decisions wisely Mohan Rakesh has written fantastic story Its an aesthetically beautiful Novel/Play He took care of everything, Message it delivers is precious I would like to thank my Goodreads friend Aniket Mahajani for recommending this book to me I was about to read this one last year, after reading Ashad Baar by makarand Sathe, which is inspired by idea from this play,However, I have forgotten it in day today activities.I would like to recommend this to everyone, who wants to read something fantastic Those who cant get book from either library or bookshop should watch YouTube video on this to understand this one. Time is the most powerful thing which destroys every thing in its way awesome. .Download Kindle ♥ Ashadh ka ek din ☪ Ashadh Ka Ek Din WikipediaAshadh Ka Ek Din Topic YouTube Ashadh Ka Ek Din is a Hindi play by Mohan Rakesh that debuted inand is considered the first Modern Hindi play The play received a Sangeet Natak Akadem Hindi Ashadh Ka Ek Din Presentation YouTube Ashadh ka ek din Duration Hindikunj , views If I Were BROKE This Is What I d Do DurationAshadh ka ek din Vintage Indian Clothing Ashadh ka ek din is aplay by Mohan Rakesh Given the title it is obvious the pivotal events of the play occur during the month DeerBefore we jump into the costume, my favourite bit of the movie with Kalidasa and Mallika sheltering a pursued deer ashadh ka ek din YouTube Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTubeDescription about eBook The author of this book is Rakesh Mohan Presented book Ashadh Ka Ek Din is a theatrical adaptation Our daily life in entertainment to offer, to express our feelings and pluses, the stage is required, it will be different from the Western theater Beautiful play on love and longing, contradiction between worldly pursuits and love Story of the protagonists Kalidas and his love Mallika who waits most of his life for his return Only the return becomes too late and life has moved on Time waits for none and Kalidas has to disappear once again in the rain outside despite wanting to start a life afresh. आषाढ़ का एक दिनSet in the period of 100400 BCE, this play portrays an intimate glimpses into the life of the great Indian Poet Kalidasa It showcases the blossoming love between Kalidasa and Mallika, her complete devotion to Kalidasa to the point of utter destruction of her life This play is not just a failed love story Rather it is muchthan that This play talks about the universal desire of a man for greatness and the reiteration of the fact that no matter what kind of greatness, IT ALWAYS COMES WITH A PRICE A PRICE WHICH BOTH KALIDASA AND MALLIKA HAD TO PAY, Kalidasa with his excellence in his craft and Mallika with her youth, her dreams and her life The sacrifice was, of course, greater on her side for the sake of love, for the sake of Kalidasa Despite living in such destitute state, Mallika (who is left with absolutely nothing), still wishes for Kalidasa's immortal greatness, adding that it is through his greatness that she has given purpose and meaning to her otherwise meaningless exitence The play is powerful, gripping and contemplative Equally powerful is the language, a little complex to understand it in one go However, the efforts of running to the dictionary and re reading certain lines for comprehension was absolutely worth it Once again, a classic and a must read for all the hindi sahitya lovers I too, will read it again and again I began reading the English translation of this play as part of my curriculum at college One page, two pages, threeI realized that this play was what I'd call unputdownable in the true sense Every character in this story has a unique place, and each of them, in some way or the other, plays a pivotal role in bringing out various holistic themes in the story Every character is uniquely brilliant, be it Mallika, the true connoisseur of art from her youthful days of intense, unconditional love for the writings of Kalidasa, to the last act of the play where the atrocities committed by the world towards her have shaped her into a completely different person who, nevertheless, still carries the old self under her wing; or Kalidasa, the wandering poet who derives inspiration for his poems from Mallika; or Ambika, the ephemeral mother to Mallikaand so on This play is not just about a love story and its different phases of maturity It is something so much beyond thata multitude of themes, including exploitation of villagers by the urban elite, deforestation and urbanization, faulty research methodologies, human slavery, and exploitation, not only at physical, but also emotional and intellectual levels, have been wonderfully portrayed throughout the play This play is a must read/watch for an intellectual and spiritual elevation via intense drama and dialogues.
