Satinder Kaur Chohan on her play Zameen about Indian farmers’ fight for land

The writer of a new play on the disaster of big business’s control over Indian agriculture, Satinder Kaur Chohan spoke to Esme Choonara

“If I make one person think about the issues unfolding on the other side of the world, I will have achieved something,” says writer Satinder Kaur Chohan of her new play Zameen (meaning “land”).

The play can hardly fail to make the audience think. It is a searing critique of the devastating impact of the market on the lives of Indian cotton farmers.

As spiralling food prices threaten hunger across the world, the play is a timely examination of the true costs of big business’s grip on agriculture.
