Children are rolling on the ground and screaming in sheer joy. The men are extremely busy. They are building a stage. Wooden planks, bamboo matting, coconut mats are brought in large and scattered quantities. Everyone is bringing whatever he can supply: the dhobi of the village, for instance, is bringing numerous sheets and pieces of coloured cloth to drape the stage. The costumes are provided by the village folk themselves and everyone is happy that something he can give is going to be useful for the drama. The carpenter of the village has taken the responsibility of supplying all the planks and poles necessary for the erection of the stage. There is also the village school master who normally teaches boys reading and writing. Today he is directing the drama: he creates the dialogues and songs, and trains all the actors.

The rest of the audience seat themselves wherever they like.

3.
