If you are in Mumbai this weekend and are looking for something interesting do, check out the two plays which will be performed at NCPA, Mumbai. Details mentioned below.


Gulabo aur Parizaad is a story about a little mouse and a parizaad (elf). The play is based on two stories by Begum Qudsia Zaidi, published in the 1950s.
How do you make friends with someone who is most unlike you? Getting to know this new person can be funny and strange, all at the same time. The parizaad shares his stories from across the universe and takes Gulabo on a wonderful, magical journey. They become friends, they play and party together and finally part ways. This is a charming tale of a friendship that lasts a few moments, but is remembered for a lifetime.
