Live Puppets – SIG (Special Interest Group) of Indian Institute of Management Udaipur is a platform for people who are passionate for drama and also for those who want to spread drama culture in the campus (yes, one need not be a dramatist to become a part of this group!).

The play found participation not only from the members of the club but also from non-members of the IIMU community as well. This years’ play was a farcical representation of the life of a young man reluctant to pursue his family business.
