Written and directed by Balwant Thakur, this globally renowned play has the honour for being selected to be presented in Shreshtha Bharat (Best of India) Sanskriti Samagam, Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu for its presentation on 13th of September, 2019. This is the first ever cultural performance of the state of Jammu and Kashmir which has made it to country's most celebrated cultural festival and its credit goes to Natrang and it's director Balwant Thakur who took Dogri language and culture to the world heights. Conceived, designed, scripted and directed by Balwant Thakur, this play has already made a mark for being the first Indian play which featured in Frankfurt Theatre Festival, Germany in the year 2009. It also has the distinction of having featured during the Commonwealth Games in the year 2010 and year of India in Russia where it was staged in Moscow, Yaroslavl, Belgrade and St. Petersburg. Produced in the year 2000, this Dogri play has given a new intellectual identity to this part of the world. In past Seventeen years, it has been staged in over 50 National and International theatre festivals and have won accolades all over. On the occasion Director Natrang Balwant Thakur informed thatNatrang has plans to have its regular shows in Jammu and other parts of the state before the proud team leaves for Theatre Olympics.
Director of the play Balwant Thakur further adds that he named it as "Ghumayee" ('Ghumayee' is a singing tradition of Dogras and is sung by the bride when she leaves her parents during marriage) because it is actually an emotional outburst of a bride wherein she acknowledges her gratitude for her relations crying and singing at the time of her 'Vidai'.But what inspired him most was that this highlighted the hollowness of marriage despite the rituals of bonding of two individuals through wedding traditions and rituals. And that the bride mustered enough courage to raise her voice against the casual attitude of her bridegroom who takes her for granted, after marriage. The theme has contemporary relevance all over the world especially when new millennium is focused on women. Through this production an effort has been made to utilize best of the actors physical and vocal resources through a language of poetic images which could transcend across linguistic barriers. Rooted totally in the cultural soil of Jammu, the play aims at seeking universal relevance and acceptance.
