Kolkata, Jan 22 (PTI) A Bengali play on the life and struggles of Jeeja Ghosh, a social activist with cerebral palsy, will be staged here soon.The story will be partly real and partly fictional, with Ghosh playing herself, director of theatre group ‘Katha Kalam’, Esha Kar, said.
“Jeeja’s story mirrors the discrimination and condescending attitude that has become all too common for India’s large number of disabled people. In their everyday lives, they are fighting to get acceptance which is long overdue,” Kar said.
