Credentials enough...Sahitya Academy Award winner Mahesh Dattani writes this, as he did and direct the film Morning Raaga with Shabana Azmi and a host of others plays directed by the likes Arundhati Raja, Arvind Gaur and Lillete Dubey.

Two teenagers in love. WAIT!!...not the kind of love we associate with teenagers. Khudiram Bose and Thillayaadi Velliamai have never met. They were both connected by a common passion: a love for their motherland. "... FERVID SUNRISE" explores how we honour our fallen Heroes and how the Present and the Future will create, nurture and celebrate our Heroes still to come.

Beyond jingoism, certainly, beyond blind faith or parochialism, the brave and the young take on an entire establishment, shaking the very foundations of an unjust government. One chooses the bomb; the other chooses self-pride. Our Heroes were there for us at the break of dawn, so that we can now live in dignity and peace.

We need them now.


Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances, with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings, and an attached restaurant- 'The Fat Chef'. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
