Kolkata: Raju, Ram Aur Main, a play directed by Kedhar Shinde, with Sharman Joshi as the protagonist, was staged today at Rabindra Sadan on the fourth day of the Minerva National Drama Festival.

The comic play in Hindi portrayed the selfish and cruel human psychology and the inherent greed in human beings which overshadows the love and benevolence even among family members.

The play started with the murder of the property owner Mr Sukhnandani (Sharman Joshi) in the hands of his wife Rupa and his PA, Aniket Dalall, and went on to show how the family members conspired to claim his property in their own name.

Joshi surprised the audience with his portrayal of all three characters of Raju, Ram and Mr Sukhnandani.

It ended with an appearance of the real Mr Sukhnandani with the chorus playing, “The truth is bitter but it is hard to deny”.

“The play talks about the rising intolerance within the family unit,” said Sharman Joshi in an interaction with NewsGram.

Raju, Ram Aur Main struck a chord with the audience, who laughed along every comic scene. Though the light and set designs were nothing extraordinary, a robust script and Joshi’s skillful acting made it an entertaining watch.

In this age of computer games, it is important that children should go out and play with neighbourhood kids.

A new study says that parents who home-school their children may think that putting them into organised sports and physical activities keeps them fit but the young need much more.

The researchers, including Laura Kabiri from the Rice University, said the problem lies in how much activity is part of organised regimen.

The authors said parents should give their children more time for unstructured physical activity every day.

“Parents know if they … don’t see their kids breathing and sweating hard, then they’re not getting enough exercise,” Kabiri said.

“So there should be more opportunities for unstructured activity. Get your kids outside and let them run around and play with the neighbourhood kids and ride their bikes.”

According to the World Health Organisation, children should get about an hour of primarily aerobic activity a day. But other studies have noted children involved in non-elite sports actually get only 20-30 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise they require.
