The play ‘ Jis Lahore Na Dekhya…O Jamya Nai ” takes you to partition where people were made aliens in their own lands. A large number of families  closed and unclosed the door of life and death routinely. A displacement of 14.4 million people from one piece of land to other pieces of land, has been one of the most  catastrophic events in human history. Writers like Khushwant Singh in ” Train to Pakistan” and “Aag Ka Darya ” by Qurratulain Hyder have written about the event. It is the story of a Punjabi Hindu woman  who is left behind in Lahore after the partition. Ratan ki Maa, does not find the courage to leave her house in Lahore even after the partition. The new family who has been allotted the house try to get rid of her and the emotional journey of humanity plays today at Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru Sanskrutik Bhavan, Ghole Road, Pune.
