મોહન નો મસાલો
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, changed the history of a nation as diverse as India and single handedly paved way for an entire nation to find its unique identity. Known as the Mahatma (The great soul), he appeared to be a man of conviction and perseverance. He became a leader, a father to a nation and to an extent the identity of India. It was his belief on his subjects and philosophies, which made him the man he was, but we must not forget that he too was young man before he achieved his accolades. Over the years we have forgotten the scared and innocent little Mohandas lost in the enormous shadow of the Mahatma.
Mohan’s Masala brings to life this lost shadow of Mohandas, through whom we discover that a lot a of the Mahatmas’ lessons were taught by these lost memories of an extraordinary life. Thus the title ‘Mohan’s Masala’ as many masalas (spices) make a recipe, here the recipe being the Mahatma and Mohania- as he was lovingly called by his relatives- being the vital ingredient.
Watch this Mohania take you through his journey in our era and his own. Let us understand what makes an ordinary soul into a spirit that is an inspiration to the entire world.
Mohandas will tell you about his childhood and his experiences that shaped his future. The skills that he picked up on the way; which made him the benevolent leader that he was. He will teach you to smell your own masalas through the example of his own life spanning from his birth in Porbandar to his life’s tipping point in South Africa.
This minimalistic theatre production brings to life the untold part of a life story so often told, making it into an experience to be cherished.
