Circle of Life

This play was written in 2009. An improvised version of this play was staged on the 22nd of December, 2009 at the school where I was teaching, then.

P.S: This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents are the results of my imagination or have been used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events/ locales/ persons- living or dead, is entirely coincidental.



A classroom full of noisy kindergarten kids. The teacher is very beautiful and exceptionally sweet and energetic.

Narrator (philosophical): So our little Abhimanyu enters school. School as I have already told you, is the society in miniature. A child learns to adjust and adapt here. He learns the ways of the world and becomes a social being. The cheerful teacher is welcoming every child, graciously and making them feel at home.

Abhimanyu (reluctant to enter the classroom-crying): I won’t go! I won’t go!

Rekha (pleading): Please sweetie, you are a brave boy!!! Look at the other children. Are they crying? Then why are you crying? Come show me that you are better than them!!!!

Abhimanyu (cribbing): Ok I will go! But u’ll take me to the swings?

Rekha (reassuringly: Of course baby! (Kisses him on the cheek)

Teacher (to Abhimanyu): Look who is here!!!!! You are so sweet!!!!! We are going to have a lot of fun today!! (hands him a chocolate) This is for you.

Abhimanyu (relieved, smiles-looks at his beautiful teacher): Thank you.

Teacher (to all the children): I am Maya Sood, your class teacher. We will have a lot of fun, together, ok. So, all of you stand up one at a time and tell me your names.

(Children stand up one by one and introduce themselves. Some start crying and some simply stand quietly. The teacher gives personal attention to each child)

Teacher(dramatically): Now, do you all like dancing?

Students( In chorus): Yes Mam!!!

Teacher: So, come with me we’ll dance together.

(The teacher takes the students to an open corridor.)

Dance 2: Jungle Song (Toy Box-Tarzan)
