In 2008, CEVA (Center for Education and Volunteer Activities) & Chhoti Si Asha came together for a street play – Khichdi . The comic parody follows the travails of an individual who is asked by people to mindlessly parrot a particular phrase (such as “jo inke saath hua, woh sabke saath ho” etc.) which though appropriate in a particular situation becomes completely inappropriate when mouthed in another. The protagonist gets repeatedly flogged while trying to follow what others wish of him – only to realize in the end the futility of mindless pursuit. This theatre done in Nautanki style was also performed at national theatre festival in New Delhi to great reviews.
