Delhi | May | 14, 2018 :: A play ‘Sakubai’ was staged at IIT Auditorium in a unique community policing initiative by Southwest District on Mother’s Day. Ms Monika Misra, a well known actor, played Sakubai. The play depicted the world through the eyes of a domestic help which is so omnipresent in all our lives specially in a city like Delhi. Themes varying from Education, sexual abuse to the relation between a domestic help with her employer and most importantly the relation between a mother and daughter were covered in the play.
In day to day policing, there have been many instances when false cases have been registered by and against the domestic helps and the employers due to lack of mutual trust. It was an effort to showcase that as human being we need to trust and respect each other. Also,the efforts made by the protagonist to get good education for her daughter made great impact on the women working as domestic help. The chief guest Ms Meenakshi Lekhi appreciated the spirit as well as the depiction of the play. Overall, the play was appreciated by all as a unique effort in community policing by Southwest District.
