GUWAHATI, March 27 - �Arun Sarma had penned a large number of plays for both adults and children. In these two categories, we see some distinct differences in the writing style. In plays written for adults, he used some critical psychological nuances, whereas in case of children�s plays his writing was very simple.� This observation was made by noted drama personality Naren Patgiri while delivering a speech on the topic �Sishu Natya Chetana aru Arun Sarma� at a function held here today to pay tribute to the noted dramatist and playwright.
Citing two children�s plays of Arun Sarma - Poster and Anupam Andhar, Patgiri said, �In both the plays he uses very simple words and sentences. In Poster, he presents the story through a situation on a footpath and in Anupam Andhar he presents the story through a situation at a railway station. In both the plays, he speaks about the life of common people and in many aspects, uses the language style used by people in real life.�
Patgiri asserted that in Anupam Andhar, the playwright shows the search for a third reality as for some people black is not a colour and some others believe black to be a colour that absorbs all other colours.
At the same programme, organised by the Arun Sarma Theatre and Remembrance Trust in the Vivekananda Kendra auditorium, the play Anupam Andhar was staged by the artistes of Guwahati Sishu Natya Vidyalaya under the direction of Manik Rai.
The programme was organised on the occasion of the second death anniversary of the noted playwright, that also coincided with the World Theatre Day.
