The production titled, Vengeance, dealt with the mindset of society. The production thematically attempted to bring a new angle to the well known dicing game and Draupadi cheerharan episode. By inserting a feminist angle and by making it their own, the winning performance questioned why Draupadi should have freed the husbands who watched as she was abused openly.
Radhika Agarwal , the vice president of Srijya said, “There are no words to describe this feeling. It feels great to finally have your hardwork acknowledged by everyone that you admire, and we are over the moon because of the feedback we have been getting from all the judges as well as the audience. We are extremely happy that we were able to live up to the expectations we had set for ourselves and make a mark”
