A skit ‘Narmedh’ was presented by Nathmandap, Patna based on a story of writer Sahni. Mona Jha acted in ‘Sagh-Meth’ while ‘Amritsar Aa Gaya Hai’ was enacted by Vinod Kumar.

Play ‘Sagh-Meth’ showed the divide between rich and poor and how the elite class family subjected their servant to unwanted harassment.

The second skit ‘Amritsar aa Gaya hai’ was a story about partition of India and what sort of oddities an elderly person had to face while travelling to Amritsar. Through the skit the director tried to show that a man is, in fact, the biggest enemy of man and how mean can a society be to a man.

All the plays caught the imagination the public who appreciated the acting ability of the actors.
