While everything around seemed headed towards a slow collapse, in a shed on an island in the middle of a lake, two boys built their world. Twenty years later, it is quite another past that stands in their way. Today, two whimsical narrators scramble madly to recreate what happened. Set against the background of the Kashmir imbroglio, ‘Gasha’ is an account of the fractured friendship between two boys, a Kashmiri Pandit and a Kashmiri Muslim and their need to affirm their story.
 
 The play is the Third and final part of the Kashmir Trilogy, the first two parts being Rizwaan ( 2010, First Festival of Contemporary Indian Theatre in Paris) and Djinns of Eidgah (Royal Court Theatre, London). Gasha , can be viewed independent of the first two parts
The play was recently performed in the Bareily International Theatre Festival, The Vinod Doshi Theatre Festival in Pune and received with much acclaim in The Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards in which it was awarded The Best Play, The Best Original Script as well as The Best Ensemble.
