It is Manya’s dream to be Shere Khan in her school play, The Jungle Book. She knows all the dialogues backwards and she’s sure there cannot be a more fierce Shere Khan. But her classmates, who make fun of her stammer and her English teacher don’t think so.

Will Manya lose her dream role? Can she overcome her fears and learn to roar?

Manya Learns to Roar looks at what it means to be Manya and the turmoils of a ten year old, who knows her own mind and doesn't let her stammering get in the way of her dreams. It focuses on how important it is to create an inclusive environment for every child where differences are accepted, understood and celebrated.

Jagriti

Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances, with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings, and an attached restaurant- 'The Fat Chef'. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
