Sananda is an arts-based educator and theatre-maker based in Mumbai. She makes works in the early years using objects, materials, and sound. She grew up in a green nook of Mumbai where trees were an important part of her growing up, and in her adult life, she has found anchoring in the busy city through engaging with them at a deeper level. She hosts a popular tree walk in Mumbai titled ‘Mumbai Overstory’. She is currently directing a play for Ranga Shankara’s International Children’s Theatre festival Aha! 2022, which also explores the Tree titled ‘Ee Gida, Aa Mara’.

The Mango Party is older than Ranga Shankara itself. The first party was held in 2003 while the building was still being finished. The mango chitranna that MS Sathyu made that day still remains unbeaten as the best thing ever in a Mango Party.

People from theatre, literature, and arts come for the party, along with people from all walks of life. Naturally, there are theatre songs, mango stories, mango competitions, and more mangoes! Close to 50 varieties of mangoes are sourced and we suspect around 300 kgs of the gold and yellow fruit are consumed.
