Synopsis: Idiocy is life-threatening and the spout of liberal nonsense is awakening, may we all agree to disagree, is the point here. Preceded with such disclaimers, Ha-Ja-Ba-Ra-La ("A Topsy Turvy Tale") is one of the finest pieces of nonsense to have ever been written. It is nothing that we don't know; the same rabbit-hole to a different dream world, where all strange things happen, having hardly any connection to one another. Yes, the animals do talk, like forever. Nyara has his eccentric songs, the mock court, its peculiar social and legal norms, Hijibijbij, his ostentatious sense of humour, Kakkeshwar, his savage calculus and Aami has his mind-palace for all the pandemonium... Only, reality comes after.
