Dinesh Thakur’s Ank presents the great epic ‘Mahabharat in fast forward’ as Sunita Budhiraja's Prashn Panchali, a solo performance of poetry in Hindi. An original work authored by Sunita Budhiraja and directed by Dinesh Thakur in a solo show by Preeta Mathur Thakur, set to Amod Bhatt’s music.

Prashn Panchali is a brave one-woman play where Draupadi confronts the audience's ingrained cultural perceptions. As Draupadi questions…her relationships and situations find an easy echo in the life situations of today’s women. But this is just not about women alone, does Draupadi have the answers to the overwhelming questions that Karna, Bhim, Duryodhan and even Gandhari pose to her? Is this life a search for answers or about surrender so absolute that the questions disappear
