Later, Sonia from Sai Paranjpe’s ‘Jaswandi’, Dr. Vasant Kanetkar’s ‘last question’.

He also took a closer look at foreign theaters. He read thousands of codes. they did. He enriched commercial and experimental theatre. Reached as the President of the Natya Sammelan. This is an uplifting play graph. The coincidences are wonderful.

After Durgabai Khote and President of Mahila Natak Sammelan Jyotsna Bhole. He accepted the responsibility of presiding over the 67th Natya Sammelan held at Ichalkaranji in 1986. Durgabai is a liar and Vijayabai’s mother-in-law! They both deal with their confidence as they choose to begin their sporting activities.

At that time Durgabai was living in Alibaug. Durgabai’s health was deteriorating. Finally Vijaybai brought him to Mumbai. Till the end, there was a mother-in-law relationship between the two instead of mother-in-law.

It was decided to meet Vijayabai on the sidelines of the press conference and in some programs. She had the same body language as the strict headmistress of a school, but still had a bit of mischief. The style of answering questions directly and clearly, the thoughtful thinking, the habit of talking face to face: the whole thing is awesome. Although he has given up acting and directing in theatre, the magic around him has not diminished. That’s what I felt every time. He directed Girish Karnad’s ‘Nagmandal’ in Hindi and German around 1993. Met during this time. It was a production of Goa Hindu Association, Leaping Theater and NCCA. It was his last directorial venture.

Vijayabai acted in the play. He also held the highest position in the field of drama, that is, the standard of convention president. played in the play. He went crazy. At one point the woman says, ‘I found the answer in Picasso’s words why I was addicted to drama! ‘I would have liked Journey from untruth to truth. The reality that has to be recreated for him and the mess it creates must be felt again and again. Why is it so hard to survive once you hit it!’

Why did you play in the theatre? To this question Vijaybai says, ‘Play for happiness!’ The play is called ‘Khel’ in Marathi, ‘Khel’ in Hindi, ‘Play’ in English and ‘Epil’ in German. It also means ‘game’. This game sounds like ‘Jimmya’ to me. Because in our traditional ‘jimmya’, the participation of many people is important. All the actors, writers, directors, backstage troupe, technical support and spectators. There is a rhythm in this game. This game is full of emotions, tangible and intangible, true and false! I played Jimma a lot. If this continues to resonate in the minds of the fans, then it will come true like a colorful experiment. Salute to Vijayabai’s colorful ‘Natya Jhimma’!
