Doosra Aadmi Doosri Aurat staged to Explore the Complexities of Marriage

Human life is strange as well as complex and so is the relationship between man and woman. You never know who you fall in love with, how, when and why.

The play Doosra Aadmi Doosra Aurat by Natsamrat was staged on 18 August 2023 at Black Canvas (LTG Auditorium), Copernicus Marg, Mandi House, New Delhi. Written by Vibha Rani, directed by Rajesh Bakshi &  Creative Director  Shyam Kumar.

The story revolves around Shoma Das, who moves to Mumbai for a job and is attracted to her office colleague Sambhav Singh.  A sense of stagnation in their respective marital lives brings them together. Slowly realizing that she is ‘just another woman’ for Sambhav, drives Soma into a frenzy. The relationship which shines for some time starts to fade. The play ends with Shoma coming back to her life, where she finds happiness and satisfaction in her responsibility towards her daughter and finally sees Sambhav as nothing more than a friend.

As the chief guest in the play, Sh. Arvind Kumar Director (Administration) of the Ministry of Culture and Shyam Kumar, director of Natsamrat, welcomed him with memento and a Shawl.
