When a buffalo intercepts an ST bus on its way between Mumbai and Ratnagiri, a beautiful chaos ensues. In what must surely rank as one of Pu La’s most beloved stories, Mhais tells one story that houses within it many others, like buds on a tree.
To Dhruv, Mhais represents the best entry point for anyone new to Pu La’s writings and kathaa kathan. Vineet finds that Mhais represents a microcosm of Maharashtra, with an incredible diversity of characters. And to Bhupal, Mhais is noteworthy for its genius both as a piece of writing, as well as a performance.
