Dr. Sharmistha Ray, a member of the organising drama group Natokey Aatok, said “Every condominium has a group of passionate theatre lovers. Barring the lights, action and applauds, the actual fun is amateur theatre lies in the preparation, with late night rehearsals after a stressful day at office. Natyomelar Deshe was conceived to simply double the fun by providing a platform to stage productions by theatre lovers.”
