Mahmood Farooqui presents

In Association with the India Habitat Centre

A Dastangoi presentation of the great Rajasthani folk story CHOUBOLI
Based on the version created by Vijaydan Detha.

Princess Chauboli has vowed that she will only marry a man that can make her speak four times in one night. Seventeen times twenty-four princes have tried and failed and are now rotting in the dungeon grinding fodder for horses. A brave and valiant Thakur, one who shoots 108 arrows through his wife’s nose-ring, everyday, day after day, also wants to try his luck. What happens to him? How will Chouboli be won? Containing a story within a story within a story, some of them pan India favorites, Chouboli is a funny, bitter, sarcastic and lyrical take on Indian life.

We’re attempt a first – marrying a Rajasthani folk tale to a form of Urdu storytelling. And we hope this fusion will be as seducing as the tales from the Tilism-e-Hoshruba.
