About Play

Welcome ZINDAGI is a play located in a two room flat in the heart of Mumbai city. The flat is inhabited by a family of three-father; Arun Ganatra, Mother; Bhanu Ganatra and Son; Vivek Ganatra. The central conflict in the play arises out of the lack of communication between the father and the son. The father, head clerk in Gandhi Associate, is on the verge of retirement and the son is young and is all set for a bright career.

The conflict is not just a simple generation conflict; it is a conflict between middle class reality and an upper class aspiration, between the service class and the business class, between and experience head clerk and inexperienced M.B.A The play though dealing with this complex conflict has inherent strong threads of humour.

Bhanu Ganatra, the wife and the mother, narrates in a light sarcastic way, the behavioral patterns of both father and son. It is her wisdom and understanding of life that gives the play its humor and depth.
