This event took place at Gyaan Adab on the evening of 18th March at 7 PM.

Dedh Inch Oopar

A play in Hindi, written by Jnaanpeeth Awardee Nirmal Verma
Solo performance by Girish Pardeshi.


Dedh Inch Oopar, the story of an old man, who like many others, was scarred by World War II. He lived a simple life which was rudely disturbed when his wife was arrested by the Gestapo for Anti-Nazi activities. After fifteen years, sitting in a bar, he narrated his story.

Dedh Inch Oopar was one of the more intimate plays that have taken place at Gyaan Adab. Girish and teams performance left the audience spell bound. The direction was a class apart, especially the prologue, which was acclaimed by everyone in the audience as 'shocking'.


Award winning actor Girish Pardeshi graduated from the National School of Drama, New Delhi, in 1998. Since then he has featured in a number of Marathi and Hindi theatre productions, films and television shows. His previous performances include Thanda Gosht (by Sadat Hasan Manto), Sangeet Soubhadra (traditional Marathi Sangeet Natak form) and Pagal Ki Diary (by Chinese writer Lu Xun) among others.
