They perform in community theaters or jathas with a single purpose: to motive communities to value their daughters. Civil society and women's groups, youth, and people's science forums have scripted their own experiences against the backdrop of the bitter reality of misogyny in Haryana, India. The group's current play: Ek nai shuruaat, is being performed in schools, street corners, village mohallas, and unusual places such as railway platforms, in order to bring this issue up for discussion.
