Play starts after Drama: Dramatist Ibrahim Vengara looks back

Ibrahim Vengara, one of the tallest figures in popular Malayalam theatre, relives his life story, which was more dramatic than any of his plots. Born on 1st August in 1941 in Vengara in north Malabar, to Seythammadath Alikunji and Puthiya Veettil Kunjamina, Ibrahim's early life was one of relentless struggle against insurmountable odds as his father died when he was barely three-years-old. Surely, his plays do not rely on manufactured, unnatural situations for conflict, as the dramatist does not suffer from lack of real life experience. A winner of several awards, Ibrahim has produced and directed several plays. His drama troupe Chirantana has presented some of the best professional plays Malabar has ever seen. Ee Vazhitharayil, Episode 120.
