Kosla(cacoon)' holds an esteemed position in Marathi literature. This novel, which was written in the year 1963 by a young man of barely 25 years of age in a span of just 15 days, gave a lifetime experience that lasted for several generations. It disregarded the traditional parameters writing and gave a new style of storytelling. Kosla is an intense endeavor to co-relate one’s existence with its surroundings and the traditions. It is an admission of defeat by the protagonist who holds the value of existence in the highest esteem.
On one hand there is this dramatic journey and on the other hand there is Nemade’s poetry which enriches the experiences of Kosla’s protagonist. A combination of all this is this dramatic exploration. This is not a staged reading of Kosla and Dekhani but it is a completely new theatrical conceptualisation based on selected portions from these two literary works of Nemade. We are are confident that the work of the same author in two different mediums will give you a seamless theatrical experience.
