As the saying goes, "the world is a stage," Safarnama Theatre continues its pursuits to live its passion for theatre. After tremendous patronage from audiences, it is presenting its next production, 'Ashaadh Ka Ek Din,' written by Mohan Rakesh. 'Ashaadh Ka Ek Din' is a Hindi play that debuted in 1958 and is considered the first modern Hindi play.

The title of the play derives from the second verse of the Sanskrit dramatist Kalidas's play, 'Meghaduta.' It literally means a day in the month of Ashaadh. Mohan Rakesh noted in the introduction to a subsequent play, 'King-swans of the waves,' that whenever he read 'Meghdoot,' he felt that the poet had distilled out his sense of acute guilt and alienation from his own being into that play, and that this realisation is what motivated Mohan Rakesh's writing of 'Ashaadh Ka Ek Din.'

The play received a Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for best play in 1959 and has been staged by several prominent directors to critical acclaim. This play explains the facts about time, the cost you have to pay for the opportunities given by time and the time doesn't wait.
