PRESS RELEASE
22nd Sept 2009

Asha Chand puts on her brand of entertainment for the 10th consecutive year
A rib-tickling comedy play for the Sindhi community
Asha Chand, the well-known events organizer who has been actively promoting the Sindhi language globally is putting on a hilarious comedy for the Sindhi community in Dubai this year. For over a decade, she has hosted annual events for the community and these have received an overwhelming response year after year due to their high entertainment value.

This year, she is bringing a super-hilarious comedy play, 'Baba Maan Shaadi Kandus' being hosted by ‘Sindhu Kalakar Mandal’ the most well known drama group from Ahmedabad. The comedy family drama will be staged on 2nd October at the Sheikh Rashid Auditorium in the Indian High School, Dubai.

Asha Chand is all smiles when she talks about the witty play. "Can you imagine what would happen within families if marriages are banned by the government? This year the Sindhi community will be in peals of laughter while viewing 'Baba Maan Shadi Kandus' or 'Father, I will marry' as the play exploits all types of humour including comedy of character, comedy of situation, comedy of dialogue."

The entire story revolves around an imminent government ban on all marriages in an attempt to control the population growth. When news breaks out, it creates a country wide alarm for most parents and stirs widespread panic within families. However, some intelligent characters convert the crisis into an opportunity with a view to making some quick bucks! A funny situation unfolds when parents having children of marriageable age are depicted running helter skelter in their anxious hurry to find a suitable match for their sons and daughters before the ban is enforced. Opportunistic suitors, worried parents, carefree brides and greedy in-laws create a bizarre interplay of contrasting reactions generating loads of laughter

Says Asha: "As objective observers, the audience too begins to identify with some characters and their idiosyncratic behavioral patterns. Most fathers will identify with the protagonist Pritamdas, whose anxiety generates a series of dramatic events creating an irresistible storyline."

Asha is grateful to her three co-sponsors. "As most companies have been recession-hit, this year has been tough for sponsorships, and hence we are grateful to our co-sponsors which aare Al Faraa Group of Companies, Yugoslavian Furniture Company, Al Maya Group, Mohan Jashanmal, Hitachi and West Zone Supermarkets. The idea behind such programmes is to promote Sindhi through entertainment. We have always encouraged various drama groups such as 'Sindhu Kalakar Mandal' to produce and put on new and old Sindhi dramas and this year we are proud to present a family drama packed with humour. We are confident that the Sindhi community will enjoy ‘Baba Maan Shaadi Kandus’ for its excellent direction, humorous plot, witty dialogues, smooth pace and its troupe of competent artistes."
