Thank You Mr Glad

Thank You Mr Glad essays a head-on collision between two unidentical attitudes towards life and people. A jail superintendent, who is a die-hard misanthrope in his conviction, encounters an iron-willed revolutionary to experience the fragility of the system he has been safeguarding all through his career. Choked by the world he believes in, the superintendent gives the proletarian a death, but less usual


  1. Hi,
    Could you please tell more about the play ? Is this based on Anil Barve's novel ?
    I happened to be an actor who had played a small role in a Nepali play based on the book sometine around 1985 in Kathmandu. The play was adapted by Prakash Sayami and directed by Ramesh Budhathoki, both now noted cine workers in Nepal. The play was re-titled "Usko Kavitama Aba Ko Rundaina?" (Who wouldn't weep after reading his poem?)to evade then regime's dangerous attention.

  2. yes its theatre drama name was ANANGAN, i hav this storu full in urdu digest, sooooooooo emotional and btfl story it is writtn by anil barve, treaty's role is superb in it... anil berve died by excess of bear drinking
