    The play "Court Martial" by Swadesh Deepak.

    About the Play

    An excellent play written by Swadesh Deepak, this is the story of a Jawan Ram Chander who is being tried in a Court Martial case. His crime: he had shot two senior army officers, killing one and seriously injuring the other. And all this to protect his badly bruised self-esteem.  The Court Martial is presided by a war-veteran Col Surat Singh who has been witness to many ‘life-and-death’ situations. But this trial puts him in a queer position so far unknown to him and during the course of interrogation he realises that the issues at stake are much larger than meet the eye.
