Rani Kadambini

Language: Bengali
Nandikar, Kolkata
Drama: Narayan Sanyal/Swatilekha Sengupta
Direction: Sohini Sengupta 


The first female doctor in the entire British Empire to have learnt and practised western medicine. We embark on a journey through the life and the times of Kadambini Ganguli. Her father believes in woman’s emancipation and is always supportive of her academic endeavours. Dwarakanath Ganguli, a very enthusiastic social worker, braves a hostile administration to help Kadambini get her much-deserved seat at the Medical College, Calcutta after she becomes one of the first female graduates in India. However, not everyone is as supportive or even as accommodating. In an all-male college, she is the centre of all uncalled-for attention. A particularly jealous professor stands between Kadambini and her graduation degree. But, with some help from Dwarakanath, she overcomes all adversaries and becomes the doctor she always wanted to be. Together, Dwaraka and ‘Kadu’, become one.
