The play is illustrated through the journey of a middle-class banker. He begins to dissociate with his everyday life, and his internal world begins creating newer associations. Therein begins the battle between the world outside and his world inside.

Ilhaam is an interrogation of alienation. It represents the journey of an individual, who struggles around his desire and his course of enlightenment. The play tosses between imagination, realisation, and non-acceptance, and remains at par, a story of every individual sitting in the audience. The play draws references from some great philosophers like Friedrich Nietzsche, Raman Maharshi, Ramkrishna Pramhansa etc. and a perfect combination of beautiful writing by Manav Kaul, original songs by Deevas Gupta and original music by Jataveda Banerjee makes this play a beautiful personal experience.



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. 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.
