Treadmill is a Hindi play that is a common journey of exploring personal memories of people in towns of India. Treadmill at its first glance is a comedy in the simplest sense of the world. In its simple manner it looks at the various instances of our lives when we continuously run but without ever getting anywhere. The metaphor of the treadmill looms throughout the play, in its content and in its form, where images, instances, memories repeat but are interpreted afresh by everyone in their own way.
The play looks at relationships between husband and wife, mother and child, travelers in a train, teacher and student, a domestic help ad her employers and that of an old tailor and a child. Tthese relationships map out a closer glance at all those special moments and relationships that we remember but do not have the time to reflect upon in our day to day lives, in our imaginary treadmills.
