Reflection Natya Mahotsav; Birsa Munda battle for jal, jungle, zameen


Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A play “Abua Disum Abua Raj Birsa Munda” was performed at Shaheed Bhavan in the city on Monday – the third day of a five-day Natya Mahotsav retreat.

The Reflection Society for Performing Arts and Culture organized the theater festival which started on July 30, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture.

Written by Satish Dave, directed by Rajkumar Raikwar, the play was presented by the Ramkrishna Repertoire Cultural and Social Society. It was shown in the play how a Birsa Munda rendered human service by becoming a Jannayak for jal (water), jungle (forest), zameen (earth).

Birsa Munda was a tribal freedom fighter, religious leader and tribal hero who belonged to the Munda tribe. He led a millenarian tribal religious movement that arose in the Bengal Presidency (now Jharkhand) in the late 19th century during the British Raj, making him an important figure in the history of the Indian independence movement. The revolt was mainly concentrated in the Munda belt of Khunti, Tamar, Sarwada and Bandgaon.

Divyansh Singh played the lead role in Birsa Munda. The music for the play was composed by Abhishek Dubey.
