Girish Karnad’s Nag-Mandala: A Study of Chastity
Pradip G Sonawane, SP Patil
Girish Karnad is a versatile playwright and knows the demands of the Indian theatre quite intimately. His play puts forward the idea of chastity through the use of folk lores, myths and historical legends. He presents truths about human life and emotions contained in ancient Indian stories with the alternations of social morals and modern norms. He also depicts the concern of psychological problems, dilemmas and conflicts experienced by modern Indian men and women in their different situations. Naga – Mandala (1988) is a powerful portrait of the sufferings faced by both men and women in their development into adult roles and social adjustment in a society where the individual is given little space for self-development, awareness and independence as being.
