Synopsis

In this solo piece which is both directed and performed by the veteran actor Seema Pahwa, brings to life Sumitra, the protagonist of celebrated author Bhisham Sahni’s short story. As she cooks Saag Meat for her unknown guest, Sumitra starts to reminisce about Jagga, her former domestic help who used to make excellent Saag Meat. She fondly remembers Jagga as a committed, loyal servant.As Sumitra pieces together the story haphazardly, peppering it with seemingly insignificant facts about this, that and the other, we start to get glimpses into the class-based hierarchies that are deeply encoded not only within our social system but even in our day to day language too; in this instance of an upper middle-class Punjabi woman.
The play ends with a serving of the Saag meat prepared during the performance, to the audience!
