The two of the main themes of the Nukkad Natak (Street Play) - Street play were: Dowry and Importance of toilets
Cases of dowry are still prevalent in India. Our Nukkad Natak portrayed a wealthy farmer's son reaching out for a girl's family to convince them to let him marry their daughter but fails miserably as he asked for dowry.
Villages are almost everywhere associated with the lack of toilets. We portrayed the story of a man and a woman who are in love with each other and decide to marry. Everything works out quite well with the man's family members until the girl finds out that he had not constructed a toilet in his home and rejects him on his face even when he was a wealthy and reputed personality in the village. The villagers seemed delighted and motivated after watching the skit.
