There are a very few things which are closer to one’s heart than the love of our Mothers. It’s always pure, divine, selfless, full of life yet always feels less.
In the modern day world, everything around us has changed, what remains unchanged is the love of a Mother.
All mothers love their kids equally, but those who realize their children are special love them even more. Vaijanti was one of them.
Ek Madhav Baug is a play within a play, a unique theatrical device where a mother narrates how she came to terms with his son’s sexuality, and also comes out of her character at intervals to speak to the writer.
RAQS AND Aaghaaz Foundation are pleased to invite you for Hindi play reading of “Ek Madhav Baug” written by late Chetan Datar and produced by Alternate Initiatives, an affiliate of the Humsafar Trust, Mumbai.
“Ek Madhav Baug” is one of the pioneering plays written on homosexuality and acceptance of the LGBTQHIA+ community.
The play is seen from the point of view of a mother who discovers that her son is gay and through his diary, relives his journey of discovery of his own sexuality.
The reading will be followed by an interactive session with the actress, Mona Ambegaonkar, and delegates from the Humsafar Trust.

As simple as it sounds it’s very difficult if you start to look at it from various angles.It’s usually cities like Mumbai Delhi Banglore which get mentioned for their queer culture / the kind support they garner from the allies.What’s particularly important that smaller cities are coming forward and that’s how the community can shun the title of “minuscule minority”
