JAMMU, Nov 8: Play ‘Postmaster’ based on a story of Rabindra Nath Tagore adapted by Pratap Sehgal and directed by Neeraj Kant was staged here today by theatre group ‘Natrang’.
The play is a story about a postmaster and an orphan village girl named Ratan. The postmaster gets transferred from Calcutta to Ulapur where he makes no friends and feels lonely. Somehow, he becomes very fond of a little orphan girl, Ratan and vice versa. They develop a bond of trust and friendship. They have meals together and Ratan runs small errands for the postmaster. She later becomes his pupil when he begins teaching her how to read.
One day, postmaster falls ill due to showers of the season and decides to apply for a transfer back to Calcutta. His application for transfer gets rejected, thus he resigns from the job. At the end, Ratan gets heartbroken to know that her master has left her forever. The play speaks about different layers and sensitivities of human relations.
