Watch a play at the Rangashankara theatre  

A performance of the Ramayana on wheelchairs by physically challenged artists, Bangalore, May 28, 2010 Bangalore was known for plays but over the years it died down. Rangashankara still hosts great plays and I enjoy going out and watching these live shows. It has a different buzz about it. They run it professionally and make the whole process very enjoyable for you. Robin Uthappa
