A Set Design for play of Writer Mohan Rakesh …
Friends last week of last month, I lived busy in work of set design of play “Lahron ke Rajhansh” . this play writer is Mohan Rakesh . play is in Hindi Language . in Bikaner The URJA Theater Society has been taken to this play for perform from Stage of Town Hall . so about set design they selected to me .
The Director of Urja Theater Society or director of play “Lahron Ke Rajhansh” master Ashok Joshi gave me work of set Design about play “Lahron Ke Rajhansh” . so I demanded to him very first the full script of play “Lahron Ke Rajhansh” , I read to script and designed some idea’s about set designs. One layout I created in painting form on paper about play “Lahron Ke Rajhansh “ .
Director Ashok Joshi and myself discussed on instructions of writer about set or that’s elements . so one bed , one dressing table , one bar setup, a swing , one door and room decoration of Boudh Tipe Period .
So I designed very first a idea or layout for electric light lamp ( look of traditional light lamp ). that was craft work plus technical exercise with electric items , by luck it was successful for that set design .
I created a design of room for set Design after read to play script . as a symbol I used to flower , flower selection was indicated to mythology or sociology too. Flower is common, it is use in prayer or in love expressions too . in visual of final set design you will notice or feel it .
When we hanged to swing in town hall, that time I focused on safety of actors. because that swing was using many time in mid of play by actors , so there I played my role as a set designer ( care taker Set Designer ). it was must for success of play by perfection of set design . my one mistake could damaged to play , set, or may be life of actors. So I was very serious when we fixed to swing on our set of play “Lahron Ke Rajhansh” .

By flowers I decorated to wings of town hall so that wings were converted in wall form or in black background the flower of color yellow,white,red were giving a natural room look of BOUDH time period .on background of stage Urja Theater Team provided me a wall setup of wood. So on that wood board’s I pasted papers of color Gamboge Hue or Burnt umber ..i cut a design in form of stone carving in burnt umber color paper and pasted on Gamboge Hue color papers of that boards. In that set design by some limited elements to I designed that set of play “Lahron ke raj Hansh” ..

Before play of “Lahron ke Rajhansh” I designed set design for urja theater society about their play “Jab Shahar Hamara Sota Hai” or play “An Inspector call” .
Kind your information Urja theater Society is self made theater artists society, its working in theater art field as a independent unit. So they know their own limitations but in limitations they are accepting challenge of play writer or theater performance format too . it is inspire to me so I join to them on their call without any demand , I take set design work as a challenge in their limitations .or I am trying to give some freedom full space to them by my set designs. I save their money , time and space of vision . when I design a set for Urja Theater society . I think I know to their limitations . so they are call to me for their set design work.
