In an unusually irreverent text that plays with the traditional Marathi musical mode of the mourning keertan and the theme of death, Satish Alekar's The Dread Departure tells the story of a dead man who will be cremated the way he wants to be and no other way.

Satish Alekar is Professor and Head, Lalit Kala Kendra, Pune Universityand Vice-Chairman, National School of Drama, New Delhi.
