The Play :
Taj Mahal ka Tender is a social and political satire. It deals with the pressing issue of wide spread Corruption in India. The dramatist has potrayed a situation where Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor, is reigning in today's times and intends to build the Taj Mahal to commemorate the death of his beloved.

He entrusts this task to his Chief Engineers and owing to the deep rooted corruption he waits in vain till his death... for just the tender to pass. Through several hilarious epiodes, it showcases the greed, malice and shrewdness of the chief engineers and various other government officials involved.

The play was staged as the 3rd Theatre Workshop Demo and had a huge cast of 27. Several characters were introduced and some roles were split in the original script. Another innovation we introduced was the Nritak Mandali, which served as the narrators of the play.

The production work of the play was par excellence as three beautiful stages were prepared:

Main Stage : Chief Engineer's office
Side Stages : Shah Jahan's darbar & Nritak Mandali's Village
