Synopsis:
Lassanwala follows the life of Kallu Bah man, a 60 year old Brahmin who prides himself to belong to the highest hierarchy of Brahaminical order. The love for lassan (garlic) flows thick through his veins. Ironically, Kallu himself refuses to eat garlic yet continues to exclusively farm and sell it for more than three generations, disregarding all other valuable crops such as cotton, tomatoes, brinjals etc. This frustrates his family of a good for nothing son, and a scheming daughter in-law. The play traces the tragi-comic events occur in his family and turn of events in social life that shake his firm belief in caste superiority.
