Diverse aspects of Mahatma Gandhi have been circulated over the years through history lessons, novels, autobiographies and various other mediums.

Little do we know about the person who inspired Bapu to become an apostle of Satyagraha and the one who greatly transformed young Mohandas’s life into a Mahatma!  Shrimad Rajchandra, a saint, poet and philosopher who made an entry into Bapu’s struggling life in the 1890s eventually became his closest friend and spiritual guide. It is this intense association which has been presented as a play in various cities of India and will now make its presence in different places of Odisha.

Titled as Yugpurush – Mahatma na Mahatma, this theatrical production highlights the contributions of Shrimad Rajchandra into Gandhi’s life besides exploring the heart-touching bonding between these two greats. This 120-minutes play has been directed by Rajesh Joshi of Code Mantra fame, penned by acclaimed playwright Uttam Gada of Maharathi fame and its music is scored by hit Bollywood composers Sachin-Jigar.
