AAU students depicts social realities through street plays at Puranigudam

A group of fourth year students, Bsc(Agri.) of AAU presently undertaking their RAWE programme in Puranigudam, Nagaon opted for a unique platform-streetplay-in Garmur Tiniali to put across their message on social realities to the local populace. They organised two plays-one named 'Vastraharan' where a statue of the great Dr.Bhupen Hazarika gets demoralised by the drunkards and youth and this play shows how the cultural ethics are at the tip of moribund. Another play titled 'Edhaani Hopun' features the life of poor girls being ruined at the hands of moneymakers who lure their parents to send their daughters and sisters to cities for earning, but in return, are sold off and abused. Another aspect of the play is that it throws limelight on the role of certified Non-governmental organizations who actively work for the support of such girls and how they prove to change their lives. Thus, the students' efforts were well depicted in their acts and they managed to create huge mob within a short time. The students received great appreciation from the bystanders and they succeded in giving their message to the people so that such hideous social activities could be brought to an end.
