Bhilwara Shanker Singh, aged 55, is one of the founder members of the MKSS along with Aruna Roy and Nikhil Dey. Acknowledged to be one of India's leading figures in people's theatre, he has combined over two decades of activism with the power of people's communication through street theatre, puppetry, song, and drama to strengthen the voice of the poor. Through his uncanny, incisive wit and his keen political insight, he instinctively communicates complex issues in an idiom familiar to the people. "These days, Amir Khan is a big fan of Mr. Shankar Singh", said Mr. Bunker Roy. He had recently been featured on Amir Khan's show, Satyamev Jayate -- Season 2 for his admirable work in the field of RTI activation at grassroots level.
