A newly-established theater group in Bangalore is breaking boundaries. The name of the group, Samanthara, brilliantly defines the entire production: a place where each is different, yet treated equally. Consisting of kothis, hijras, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered individuals, each of the twelve members of the cast belongs to a sexual minority. The diversity of the subject matter covered by this group is impressive as well- from portraying queers in historical time periods to a usual day in the marketplace, the audience is drawn into how sexual minorities are affected in many different situations. Through entertainment, Samanthara increases awareness of our community. Now someone go over there and videotape it so I can watch!!

I suppose that the independent producer will usually be the originator and finder of the script and starts the whole process.
