Tiatr Personality – JP Pereira


John D’Silva narrates happenings and the selfishness practiced by various individuals in different capacities and positions of authority, when they could easily help a deserving individual. Dhongiponn recounts the story of a swimmer who is refused financial help by everyone she approaches.

Shabana has won the swimming contest among the southern states of India.  She now plans to go to Australia to participate in a competition there. This is going to be expensive as it is a big jump.

She refuses saying “there is nothing in this for me.” They approach a TV channel, an NGO for women empowerment as well as a newspaper for help but they all refuse. The two of them then appeal known tiatrist.  His advice and the ensuing activities form the rest of the play.

The writer-director wants to inform the public that good messages are not promoted by most of the media and NGOs who are looking only for sensational news that increases their ratings and income.
