Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal and Kaizaad Kotwal’s Hindi version of The Vagina Monologues provides entertainment alongside sex education. Despite dealing with potentially risqué material, Kissa Yoni Ka is never lewd. Each vignette begins with a Hindi film song, such as “Baar Baar Dekho”, with innuendos that the audience is quick to catch. The play’s tour de force is “Choot”, an antakshari-like exercise that leaves audiences in guffaws.
