Event Description

Girish Karnad’s ‘Benda Kaalu on Toast’, set in Bangalore, revolves around an intersection of characters both wealthy and poor. It speaks of their individual dreams and ambitions, and the complexities of these relationships through the cruelty they inflict on each other. The title of the play is derived from the legend of Bangalore’s etymology in which an 11th Century king, tired and weary, knocked on the door of a woman who offered him boiled beans. The grateful king named that spot ‘Bendakalooru’, that over the years has become, Bangalore/Bengaluru. The play makes this city its subject – a commentary on its humongous growth over the last few decades and a realistic view of contemporary India.
