Synopsis: Aurat! Aurat!! Aurat!!! (Ismat Apa ke Naam - III)

An all-female cast enacts selections from Ismat Chughtai’s autobiography, and three other writings (EK SHAUHAR KI KHAATIR, AADHI AURAT AADHA KHWAB, and SONEY KA ANDA) which are essays rather than stories, reflecting Ismat apa’s abiding concern for the state of womanhood, her impatience with empty rituals and her anger at the condescension women are subjected to.
