Japanese for ' those who were
bombed'. A poignant story of a family, fighting the horrifying
memories of a brutal act that not just changed a nation but
also the world. Living with the demons of what they have witnessed,
the family struggles within itself: to fear the past or embrace
the future...to choose between their loved ones...to fight the
facts or to surrender to the fate...Indecisiveness continues…Who
will triumph at last…life or death?
Hibakusha is a lyrical poetry.

& rebuild, but also how Love can heal anything. Extremely

journey on human values at large. It is in fact the Ultimate
Hibakusha is one play from
the show “PhirAao Na”. From an ugly divorce to a
nuclear warfare, the source of any impending doom lies at one
root cause: the loss of a “Connect” to our own self.
To this inner realm, where each one of us knows the Reality,
where we are aware of the meaning of “Beauty”, “Truth”
and “the Eternal”, we must connect back. We must
hear to our inner calling when it says, -- PhirAaoNa !!! And
Here is to a New Beginning!!
