    I am shattered I died reading this painful masterpiece I feel hollow from inside It s the weirdest feeling I ever encountered in my life Mahesh Dattani is the Lord of playwriting I could see faces, hear voices everything was in front of my eyes even when I haven t seen its recitation But unfortunately, I am dead Something happened to me I just don t know what.
