Ajoka's play "KabeeraKhara Bazar Mein" is about a mystic/Sufi personality of 15th century. Kabeera who was a poet as well as a saint is the best known representative of the Bhakti movement which was largely monotheistic, spiritual and social movement which challenged the caste system and divides existing in the society. The basic concepts of this movement were related to Sufism, bringing the two movements very close to each other. It is interesting to note that Kabeer was a personality who was in constant conflict with both the orthodox Hindus and the Muslims.

Ajoka has always brought forward quality entertainment with a message of peace. Kabeera is  an attempt to bring social change through theatre
