Talks about: Ghurkhas & the Civil War
Kagendra is a movie star, director, radio producer and playwright. He has worked for the BBC world service producing innovative ‘soap opera’ style dramas dealing with issues such as sexual violence and family health. While plays for the theatre earn him little money, a great sense of responsibility to pass on the stories of his times keeps him writing.Here he talks about two of his plays: The Grandfather’s Tale, a story of a family of Ghurkha soldiers & Song of Sorrow, a drama of displaced people during the civil war.
