The one-act play by Mir Ranjan Negi titled- ‘Gloom to Glory’ is based on the real life story of Mr Negi. The event- Asian Games 1982, in which he was wrongly accused of match-fixing, which turned his life upside down overnight, is the crux of the play. The emotional turmoil which he subsequently underwent and finally came out of it has been brilliantly portrayed by Mr Negi.
From this one-act play, Mr Negi sends a strong message to youngsters these days who easily succumb to pressures and commit suicide. “It was not easy for me, but I did not stop believing in myself and began worked even harder after that. My family and closest friends stood by me throughout this ordeal and supported me.”
