Chandigarh: North Zone Cultural Centre (NZCC), Patiala (Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India) in collaboration with Sanskar Bharti, Chandigarh Chapter organised three days ‘3rd Aacharya Abhinavgupt Rashtriya Natya Mahotsav-2020’ at Tagore Theatre, Sector 18, Chandigarh from February 8 to 10, 2020.
On the last day of the mahotsav on February 10, 2020 the artists of Rangmandap, Delhi presented play ‘Diploma in Corruption’ directed by Sh. J.P. Singh. When the environment and the system itself is negative and corrupt, then how is creative and positive work possible? Everyone who does such an act is called a fool or a freak. There are difficulties at every step in such work. Different types of questions are asked. A question mark is put on the due. In such a situation, the will power of the person starts to go awry. He starts to question himself whether what he was going to do was wrong? What was his interest in that? He was public in whatever he was going to do. Was socially ….. Then why all of them are against him? The diploma in corruption drama is the story of one such school master, who is enraged by the current environment. As a teacher, it is your moral responsibility to improve the polluted environment, but a small mistake turns water on everyone. Master ji stands in the dock, whose brunt also suffers. The play also finally gives us a message. To say this is a comedy-satire drama, but somewhere is the tragedy of a true person, through which the squid face of society is shown. The cast of the play captivated everyone with their performances. The performance was appreciated by one and all.
On this occasion, NZCC organized an Exhibition of Paintings based on the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev. All the distinguished guests and art lovers were given a grand welcome by the bean-jogi artists of Haryana.

Kamal Arora, Chairman, Chandigarh Sangeet Natak Akademi and Sh. Mukesh Sharma, President, Sanskar Bharti, Chandigarh Chapter and other dignitaries appreciated and honored the artists and director of Rangmandap, Delhi this beautiful theater performance.
