The air was filled with the hushed voices of women in the theatre. At least women, young and old from the dingiest slums in Mumbai were seated in anticipation nervously fidgeting with the ends of their dupattas waiting for the play to begin. The mood slowly transformed as the stage was set on fire by five actors, including Mahabanoo Mody Kotwal and Dolly Thakore.
Tuesday's was the first in a series of 10 performances of the play to be alternatively held at Prithvi theatre and Jai Hind college auditorium reaching out to nearly 3, women from the slums of Thane, Mankhurd, Dharavi and others. Vagina, in hindi, is used as a cuss word. The essential organ of the female body is trivialised by being called a 'phuddi' in hindi or 'mayyan' in rajput clans of Rajasthan. Of the few men that attended the play, year-old Yogesh Kamble said that girls are conditioned to believe that they always need to keep themselves covered with a dupatta.
The play touched upon close to 15 horrific real life stories from over women interviewed across the globe. In one, a husband injured his wife while shaving her vagina with a blade; in another case, a young girl was shunned upon as her menstruation cycle set in.
As the minute play progressed, suppressed whispers of the women transformed into loud laughter. The play deeply touched Sunita D'Souza, 29, a Dharavi resident.
Sunita was married off as a child and delivered a child at I believed that a baby will pop out of my mouth. After the agony of childbirth, a sense of relief took over me," said Sunita. While men strut across public spaces confidently, women are conditioned to be shy. However, the least women can do is be enabled to confidently move in public spaces," said Mahabanoo Mody Kotwal, director of the play. After watching the play, these women intend to initiate discussions on sex and their sexuality amidst slum communities.
It is a organ to be celebrated and not looked down upon. We will teach women to assert their sexuality instead of shying away from it," said Iyer. Home India Mumbai. Written By Maitri Porecha.
The Vagina Monologues/Kissa Yoni Ka
The Vagina Monologues, is a play that should seen by everyone. Its beauty and strength lies in the fact, that the women whose stories these are belong to the indomitable group of people we call survivors.

And it is that very essence, that very spirit that is assaulted, brutalized, and rarely celebrated each and every day, in just about every corner of the globe.
