Synopsis of the Play – Aahat:

With their hearts full of profound love and optimism, Sameer and Madhavi initiate their nuptial life in a metropolis. Having fought tooth and nail against their families to materialize their inter caste marriage they are now  wedged into rigmarole of achieving as many materialistic assets as they can like any other young couple of our times. Engrossed in their unimpeded pursuit of worldly belongings they do not discern advent of a demon hell bent upon devastating their lives and rob it of its ethereal beauty and virtue. This is a story of intense struggle of their love, values and self respect with beastly instinct of acquisitive progress. At the same time the play evokes a pertinent query in the mind of spectators- Do we really know ourselves and our so called dear ones? In the hastily altering societal scenarios it raises a question on our changing priorities and value system and provokes us to think- Where are we heading towards? Are we listening to the whispers of demon!

दिल मे बेपनाह मोहब्बत और आँखों मे अपने खूबसूरत कल के बेशुमार ख्वाब लिए समीर और माधवी आ बस्ते हैं एक महानगर मे. सबका विरोध करके अंतर्जातीय विवाह के बंधन मे  बंधने वाला ये जोड़ा अपनी कड़ी मेहनत से वो सब कुछ जुटाना चाहता है जिसे जुटाने की अंधी दौड़ मे आज हमारा नौजवान  कोल्हू का बैल बन गया है….. बहरहाल वो दोनों खुद की तरफ धीमे से बढ़ते भौतिक सुख के माया जाल के क़दमों की आहट सुन ही नहीं पाते और जाने अंजाने ही एक भयानक खेल का हिस्सा बन जाते हैं जो उन दोनों की ज़िन्दगी उलट पलट कर रख देता है ! ये कहानी है उनकी इस जद्दो जेहेद की , प्रेम, स्वाभिमान, संस्कार और तरक्की की भूख के आपसी संघर्ष की।  वहीँ एक और ये नाटक देखने वालों के दिल मे ये संदेह  छोड़ जाता है की क्या हम वाकई अपने आपको और अपनी क़रीबी रिश्तों को पहचानते हैं ? बदलते परिवेश मे  ये आज के युग के सामने मुह बाये खड़ी चुनौतियों के साये तले हमारे मूल्यों, प्राथमिकताओं और पसंद नापसंद के बदलते स्वरुप को भी इंगित करता करता हैं और मन मैं कांटे सा चुभता सवाल छोड़ जाता है – किस ओर चले जा रहे हैं हम ? क्या ये आहट  सुन पा रहे  हैं हम ?
