Over the years, the society that we live in has been made to break on a regular basis. It has been molded and morphed into a subconscious state of mind where the morals that was once valued now hold no meaning in our day to day lives. The fast paced world is fueled by the aggression of competition. The lessons we learn through our childhood is inevitably unlearnt in the process of growing up, all for the sake of progress.

AIUB Drama Club’s [ADC], “Shubhochon Nirbashoney”, is a play that portrays just that. The program was organized in the AIUB Auditorium on the 20th of April 2014. Written and directed by members of ADC, Abdullah Al Mamum and Rumana Islam Jui, the play sets stage in the average Bengali society. It showcases a motherless family of 4, where the father teaches his 3 children to walk the path of honesty in life. They are taught never to deviate from the truth, but as they step into the real world as adults, they find themselves in the crosshairs of what is right and what is easy. In time, they realize how honesty and truthfulness have become empty words that are traded for success every day in this society. In the end, they blamed their father for it, as each felt that the way they were brought up all these years, are now completely worthless in the world today.

The performance was applauded by the audience, who greatly appreciated the thought behind the script, the efforts put into the play, and the overall initiative. Supported by the Office of Student Affairs [OSA], along with the administrative staff and other Club members of AIUB, it was a full-house, as many faculty members, alumni, guardians, and students enjoyed the show.
