Strange Lives

Updated: Nov 3, 2022

A couple of youngsters start realising their abstract understanding of life is inadequate in the face of reality when they put their idolised teenage plans to execution. Realising their amateur thought-processes have to be re-evaluated and their decision-making capabilities have to become more robust, each character either grows beyond or surrenders to their circumstances.

“Strange Lives” by R. S. Chintalapati is a drama that deals with the themes of love, life, legacy & compromise. It shows how one should either grow beyond their problem to solve it or succumb and live within the framework dictated by it.


Dedicated to

Bajju, Mani, Mahi, Milky, Pakoli, Nikki, PC, Pravi, Chethu, & Nasa.


Note from Publisher

Dear reader,

The first twenty scenes in this drama were written by the writer but the final scene was added after our conversation at his home. I personally felt that without that scene, Neelkanth’s journey is incomplete.
