A Straight Proposal
Nobody knows whether ghosts exist or not but still many of us do believe that they exist. Yet people like Dhruv, Mitesh, Amar, Kranti, Turag and thousands like them exist but society ignores their existence or criminalizes their needs. Who is forcing them to live like ghosts? Are they supposed to be like that? Can love be considered a crime? The play covers the life of Mitesh the protagonist of the play, the ups and downs in his life which goes parallel to the ups and downs of the LGBT movement in India. The play unfolds a series of Mitesh's love stories and his relationship with his brother and father which bring out the several problems in the gay community. A secret life and the mysterious death of Mitesh in this play are not just incidents, they become metaphors for us. A story of one diary, four love stories, one phone call, four days of love, one promise, four lovers and one gunshot... a straight proposal.
