May 23-25: MOITREE - the Bangla theatre festival in Bengaluroo 
"Attention Theatre-lovers! !!
mukhOsh is all set to treat you with three days of rich theatre
*Mark your calenders now for MOITREE - the Bangla theatre festival in Bengaluroo * -- six plays -- a panel discussion -- music and poetry -- bengali delicacies -- and ofcourse, the inevitable Bengali adda!!
Moitree is the festival of friendship. We have arranged for the cream of Bangla theatre to visit Bengaluroo, which is now home to over a lakh of Bengalis. We aim to re-create the vibrant cultural ambience of Bengal that we miss away from home, and to create a platform where the two cultures, that of Bengaluroo and Kolkata can interact. This would be a first-of-it' s kind experience for the city. The schedule for the festival is given below: * Friday, 23rd May, 1100h:* Panel discussion on "Globalisation and the Indian regional theatre - a camouflaged threat?" Eminent theatre personalities from Kolkata and Bengaluroo would be on the panel. *Friday, 23rd May, 1930h:* Play "Daibaddha" by Sayak, Kolkata *Saturday, 24th May, 1100h:* Play "Dildaar" by Sayak, Kolkata *Saturday, 24th May, 1930h:* Plays "Mallabhumi" and "Shoorpanakha" by mukhOsh, Bengaluroo *Sunday, 25th May, 1100h:* Play "Galpo Hekim Saheb" by Sundaram, Kolkata *Sunday, 25th May, 1930h:* Play "Sajano Bagan" by Sundaram, Kolkata
mukhOsh is a forum where scientists give expressions to their passion for theatre.
Moitree is a friendship that attempts to provide a platform for the interaction between the theatre enthusiasts of Bengaluroo and Kolkata.
We would be bringing out a booklet on the occasion of Moitree, that would reflect the unification of the two cultures, and of the sciences with the performing arts. Eminent theatre personalities as well as scientists would be contributing articles in both Bangla and English for this booklet, that would surely be a reader's delight.
The booklet would be priced at Rs.20/- per copy. Book your copy now!
Tickets for the shows are priced at Rs.150/- each. Tickets would be available at the Ranga Shankara counter from 15th May.

mukhOsh attempts to add some sunshine to the lives of the underprivileged through its performances. The proceeds of the festival would be given in aid of paraplegic children to the Mathru Foundation, an NGO run by the Para-olympian, Padmashree Smt. Malathi K. Holla.
