Description:

Majipa Lakhe is a mythical story of a central character in “Indra Jatra’ which is celebrated every year by Newar community. ‘Majipa Lakhe’, as he is known, is a devil and yet, he is celebrated and prayed to. It is believed that a daughter of a farmer Balamaicha fell in love with him as he could accomplish herculean tasks in a matter of seconds. This love story created fear of the devil among villagers. The story ends on a happy note where a union between human and devil creates harmony between these two clans. It also raises the issue of discrimination based on appearance, bodily structure and disposition. Rich with music, entertaining comedy, Newari culture and portrayal of Newari lifestyle of the time, the play is a feast for the eye.
