Nautankiwallahs Freshening Up
In Bihar prospective candidates are fond of arranging nautanki to entertain their voters. The nautankis now come from as far as Mumbai. The clever ones pack their cast with c-grade prostitutes, who do sexy movements and many other side roles. Such shows have been heavily criticised, but the candidates know how effective they are in winning support. So one expects them to do brisk business in the forthcoming election in the state. The entry is free, so if anyone wants to see he will face no problem. Heard companies in Mumbai are freshening their acts. But this time one is told Mumbaiwallahs are likely to face competition from Nautanki companies in Bihar itself and those in Eastern UP. They have the advantage of language.
