Nukkad Natak, also known as Street Play is a frequent scenario on streets and theatre houses in India and Gurgaon is no exception to it. Street Plays are known for delivering a social message, imbibed with a lot of creativity and it is bound to make lots of noise, when they step into the corporate world.
The occasion was to talk about gender biasness and nothing can beat a ''Nukkad Natak,'' when presented with the help of young brigades. The event was an initiative by D&I Council, a programme under the umbrella of Pepsico, where Naazneen Bhasin, DCP (East), Gurgaon was the guest of honour for the occasion. The street theatre programme was held in the Global Business Park to disseminate awareness about gender biasness we face today.
Praveen Someshwar, CEO- Foods, PespsiCo India, said,
“Creating awareness is a necessary first step, because many of these
mental prejudices lead to non- inclusive behaviours. This medium is very
effective and powerful in creating awareness and attitude change.”
The event kicked off with a 15 minute street play by teenagers and their confidence and willingness to bring a change in the society was transparent in their electrifying act. They perfectly interacted with the crowd and their eye to eye contact with the audience made sure they keep the gender biasness message etched in their memory for long. The event also witnessed a brief question and answer round with the crowd where DCP Naazneen Bhasin also eagerly participated sharing her views and opinions.
''Gender biasness is something, which everyone has faced sometime or the other and what I loved about the act was that it not only brought girls into the spotlight but boys as well. Gender inequality is a very sensitive issue and one needs to combat it with an aim to eradicate it. Law steps-in when things get out of control and we are always willing to sort out the issues at the earliest, said DCP Bhasin.
