Kabaddi, the Game of Partition is a period drama of the bloodiest time in Indian history. This play is a testament of the mass that was made to participate in one of the biggest political gambles ever. Sure; nations were divided, treaties were signed, tanks were loaded, and armies were deported. But what the people went through, is what has carried the legacy due. We have all read enough about Gandhi, Nehru, Jinnah, the commission, India and Pakistan; it is now time to relieve the madness as citizens of the country. The essence of the play thrives on just one question, did the independence really set us free?
