Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The seven-day national drama festival, Janyoddha, began with play, Viplav Aahuti, written by Acharya Chatursen at Shaheed Bhavan in the city on Friday.

The play begins with Komagata Maru, a Japanese ship where Ras Bihari Bose gathers Bhai Balamukund and Master Amirchand to execute Delhi Lahore Movement. Two years later, Vishnu Ganesh Pingle and Kartar Singh are asked by Bose to carry out blast on Ferozepur Cantonment. Despite all the unsuccessful efforts, the rebels sacrificed everything to liberate the country and did not give up till their last breath.

“The play sheds light on freedom fighters whose sacrifices were forgotten,” Joshi said. It was presented by the students of MP School of Drama. Bishal Barua as Ras Bihari Bose, Pradeep Tiwari as Bhai Balamukund, Abhay Anand Badoni as Master Amirchand, Arpit Thakur as Vishnu Ganesh Pingle were in lead roles. Anjana Puri composed its music.
