Diwali Program: Natak Charchoughi

It’s time for our last program of the year: DIWALI. This Diwali, we are planning to bring you a critically acclaimed marathi natak “CHAR CHOUGHI” presented by Naatya Rang.

Women still continue to face many challenges in our male dominated society and exactly that struggle is powerfully depicted in this drama written by marathi theater's acclaimed author Mr. Prashant Dalvi. The four protagonist ladies stand up tall defying the odds to carve their own future out. 

एक आई आणि तिच्या तीन मुली - म्हटलं तर चार चौघींसारख्या - प्रेम, संसार, आणि कुटुंबाबद्दल वैयक्तिक अपेक्षा आणि स्वप्न असलेल्या.  

पुरुषप्रधान संस्कृतीच्या बळी बनतानाही त्याच संस्कृतीच्या वर्चस्वाला आव्हान देण्याचे असामान्य धैर्य दाखवणार्‍या ह्या चौघींची ही गोष्ट स्त्रीमुक्ती संदर्भातील स्त्री-पुरुष समानता आणि स्त्रियांचे अधिकार ह्या सारख्या शाश्वत विषयांवर  बोलके भाष्य करते.

ह्याच चौघींची ही गोष्ट - "चार चौघी"

As usual, kids will not be left behind. There will be fun activities like Robotics! Also we will play kids movies on the big screen! 

We are a community organization and are always happy to promote the nonprofit organizations dedicated to social cause that our members are part of. If you want to participate in the nonprofit showcase, please reach us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Last but not least, there will be sumptuous selection of food items at Anand Mela. So mark the date and come have a blast of Diwali with NEMM!!!!

Date: November 12, 2016 

Time: 3 PM - 7 PM

Venue: Whitcomb Middle School, 25 Union Street, Marlborough MA 01752


Diwali Program: Chaar Choughi Natak

From the director of the play Chaar Choughi - Rahul Joshi:

"चार चौघी" हे प्रशांत दळवी, चंद्रकांत कुलकर्णी जोडीचे अत्यंत गाजलेले नाटक. काळाच्या पुढचा विचार मांडणारे, ह्यातल्या स्त्रिया तुमच्या आमच्यातल्याच असल्या तरी चाकोरीतल्या मात्र नाहीत. त्यांचे स्वभाव, मूल्ये आणि त्याकरता असलेली झगडण्याची तयारी, एकमेकींवरच्या विश्वासाची लागलेली कसोटी ह्या सगळ्या गोष्टी नाटकाला एका वेगळ्याच उंचीवर नेऊन ठेवतात. 

 न्यू इंग्लंड मराठी मंडळाच्या प्रेक्षकांना एक सकस नाट्यानुभव देण्याचा प्रयत्न आहे आणि मला सांगायला आनंद वाटतो कि ह्या नाटकातून 4 नवीन कलाकार रंगमंचावर पदार्पण करत आहेत, रसिकांना त्यांचा अभिनय आणि एकंदर हा सर्वच नाट्यप्रयोग नक्की आवडेल अशी खात्री आहे. 

Chaar Choughi - the uncommonly courageous story of a mother and her three daughters standing tall in a male-dominated society, choosing to create their own paths in life despite opposition. We hope you will love our play.


Happy Diwali and Special Offer

We are blessed with very enthusiastic and loyal members like you. In fact, our universal membership count is at all time high. The $85 annual membership allows you and your family to attend all 6 programs of the year for free. The regular program ticket is $15 per person and $20-25 for International artists. The non-members also need to buy tickets for kids. So $85 annual membership is a huge bargain compared to paying $150 or more otherwise.


We know that several families are still not sure whether to get membership. So for our Diwali program, we are offering tickets for $10. It is the lowest ticket price in several years. We want all the nonmembers to attend our program - the play ‘Chaar Choughi’. Also there is going to Anand mela with food vendors.
