Based in the South Bay, Naatak's plays are put on primarily by Indian immigrants working in Silicon Valley's tech industry. Saraf's newest play, a musical exploring the life and legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, opens Sept. 14.  Saraf joins Forum to preview the musical and discuss his approach to presenting Gandhi's life story on stage.
