The story is located in a hamlet in Haryana and is based on Kalpana Chawla’s trip to space. On knowing about this, a group of young girls in this village and their sewing teacher go on an odyssey of their own. They start a program “Hello Farmaish” a call-in show that caters to all sort of requests and also talks about Kalpana Chawla’s mission on a ham radio channel. In that process they face hurdles – social stigma, threat, vandalism. Yet their flight of fantasy doesn’t stop. The stage is creatively designed like an abstract painting. It has a stairway to stars hanging from the ceiling. There is a round ring that looks like an orbit but is really a door. Clouds and a tree complete the dreamy effect. The review would be incomplete without a word of appreciation about the acting. The seasoned cast gets their Haryanvi diction as well as gait just right. The awesome music and the simple dance moves help in creating a lasting impression and we keep travelling the roller coaster with the actors. Yes, it is a story about women empowerment. But there is more. It breaks stereotypes such as gender-bender issues, one can follow one’s heart sitting at any corner of the world and not all men are MCPs. Nonetheless, because of the crash of the spacecraft Columbia, Kalpana Chawla could not make it. She and her fellow astronauts died as the world watched in horror. But what happens to our Hello Farmaish girls? Where does their odyssey take them? No more spoilers from us. Watch Hello Farmaish whenever it is staged again as it is totally worth the jump between dream and reality. All said, Hello Farmiash is about that flight that we all need to take – in and out – every single day.

The Setting

Theatre in India, much like other places in the world, has a paradoxical image. As those in the Indian theatre scene would attest, dearth of funds and the occasional distracted audience remain an obstacle in what should otherwise be a free-flowing creative pursuit. At the same time, there is a small but significant section of the intelligentsia that gives the scene a cerebral hue, making it perceivably inaccessible to those who may not be so actively clued into the theatre scene. But all that is a thing of the past.

With the Aditya Birla Group taking a keen interest in being a mentor with a creative mind, Aadyam has served as a catalyst to streamline stage management, encourage marketing ideas, as well as groom administrative structure in the world of the arts.

The Vision

Committed to producing quality performances, Aadyam’s vision is to become one of the biggest gateways to artistic expression for meaningful experiences and capacity audiences in India
