The name of the play Himalayachi Savali, originally written by Vasant Kanetkar in 1972 and revived by director Rajesh Deshpande, translates to the Shadow of Himalayas. The story revolves around Nanasaheb a professor deeply committed to his ashram that works towards the upliftment of young widows. It describes what it feels like to live in the shadow of a great man. Furthermore, it delves into the complex dynamics of a family one where all the members want the best for each other, but differ greatly in perspectives. Nanasaheb is so deeply involved in his charity, that he often ends up neglecting his home and his family in the bargain. This often leads to tension and resentment among his daughter, sons and wife.
