I'm still mulling this one over; not sure whether I should throw my opinion out there or not. But apropos of nothing, I'll just mention that I think I preferred Schuster & Mollmann's pick for Rahda's first name over the one presented here, which was just another use of the "use the actor's first name" idea.
I picked "Manjula" because I'd recently read the excellent Kleptomania
, a collection of short stories by the Indian author Manjula Padmanabhan, when working on the outline.
^Yeah, they called her Manjula Rahda. (Although really the surname should be Radha; the original script spelled it wrong.)
It's a common surname in Space India.
