Vagina Monologues is the theatre show which is based on stories of women who belong to the unique group of people, who we call
survivors. It brings about an awareness between the women. This
masterpiece show has completed a long 10 years and it is an
achievement in itself.
On the same we got in touch with Jayati
Bhatia who also is a part of the show as an actor who said, "It is a very proud moment for
our entire team who is associated with the show. It is a milestone that
we have achieved and I guess there is yet a very long way to go too. In
the very start it was a controversial subject but than with the time it
was accepted and appreciated by the people."
Further she added
saying, "It has been a remarkable journey so far. In 2003, when we started the show, it was rejected in various parts of our country
namely Ahemdabad, Chennai and Lucknow, where we were not allowed to perform at
all as people thought that the name of the show itself is bad and that
it should be banned. But as I said before, today it is accepted and people
celebrate their anniversary, birthdays, occasion by coming and watching
our show which makes me feel very proud."
"We can see the way
our country has developed in these 10 years. Just where the name itself
was a ban of the show we are now going all houseful. Now we are also
going to Jaipur to perform, as they have been inviting us from quite
some time to come there and conduct a show. It is overwhelming to get
such a response from the people.The best part is that through our
theatre show we have contributed around 1.5 a crores to an NGO. It is
proud moment when we are able to help the needy."
