Ek Madhav Baug written by Late Chetan Datar is one of the pioneering plays written on homosexuality and acceptance of gay community. The poignant play tells the story of a 21 year old young boy coming to terms with his sexuality. The play is seen from the view point of the mother of the young man who is reading his personal diary in which he speaks to his mother about growing up gay, conflicts faced in coming to terms with ones sexuality and final acceptance of being a normal person whose preferences may be different but not deviant. The play strikingly brings out the emotions of the mother and son and will leave no soul untouched through its intensity and heartfelt content.
