STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: To promote a meaningful theatre, Natrang presented Saadat Hasan Manto’s play ‘Jurm Aur Saza’ directed by Neeraj Kant at Natrang Studio Theatre in its Sunday Theatre Series. At the beginning of the play ‘Jurm Aur Saza’ one ‘Kamla’ is shown weeping continuously in front of ‘Shanker’, they both are sad and shocked as ‘Kamla’ narrates the incident when her modesty was outraged by ‘Kundan’ in whose house she works as a domestic help. He fraudulently calls her to his room in the pretext of helping her and commits crime. On hearing this, ‘Shanker’ gets annoyed as he loves her, he decides to avenge this crime. He arrives at the room of ‘Kundan’ while he was asleep and threatens him by showing knife, he makes him confess about the crime and forces him to write a suicide note after which he poisons him so that the murder looked like a suicide. Everyone agrees that ‘Kundan’ had committed suicide as he was remorseful of some sin which he had committed, even police closed the case considering it a suicide. But ‘Shanker’ deliberately gives a lead that it may not be suicide. He even admits his crime in front of Kamla, to which she was shocked and tells him that a crime can never eliminate another. Even if ‘Kundan’ deserved to be punished but not like this. This jolted Shanker’s consciousness and he confesses his crime in front of police and embraces the punishment open heartedly. The play in a very impactful manner, highlighted the value of consciousness and sincerity to the soul. Natrang actors who performed in the play included Shivam Singh, Kananpreet Kaur, Aakash Wadhwan, Udit Sagar, Mohit Sharma and Sushant Singh Charak.
