The Mighty Uncle

"It is a misconception that puppet shows were used to amuse children. It was never so. Puppet shows that traditionally demonstrated episodes from The Mahabharata or The Ramayana were meant primarily for adults, which children could also watch. The puppet show is advancing at a rapid pace with the introduction of technology and animation into the shows. There is so much more scope for innovation," says Roy, who plans on breaking the confines of an auditorium and bringing the puppet show to the masses.

The show that will be performed in Pune is an excerpt from a demonstration titled The Magic Blue that was first performed in Delhi in 2006.
