The Vaidhya's Oath is a theatre project on anti-microbial resistance.

Dr. Ajay has been demoted, a punishment transfer from his hospital in Allahabad to a Primary Health Centre in Katkoot, UP. Uma, his wife, is a Bangalore girl. She can't hack Katkoot. Then she finds out she's pregnant. Meanwhile, Kamala, a local girl, has a baby boy ill with sepsis. Can Dr. Ajay cure him? And then there's Rahul, a seismologist who wants to be a stand-up comedian.

Will the marriage survive?
Will the baby live?
Will Rahul get a laugh?
Find out in ‘The Vaidya’s Oath’ by Gautam Raja.

‘You, and a lot of people in India, need to learn that money can no longer buy you protection from infection’.
‘You go about the Real India – you can’t handle two hours of the real India without totally losing it’!
‘Rarely does a health crisis come into your living-room like this’.

Director’s Note:
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a world problem but is especially an Indian one. In a land with more mobile phones than toilets trying to keep AMR at bay is hard. It may seem like someone else’s problem. Try telling that to Kamala and her new-born baby with sepsis… 


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.
