Girish Karnad, a living celebrity in the field of Indian literature, who strikes upon the issues of traditional bondages to free the woman from the male dominated authority of society. Girish Karnad is a very capable writer, director and actor who has significantly contributed to enrich the institution of Indian literature. His renowned writings are Yayati, Tughlaq, Hayavadana, and Naga-mandala and so on. Girish Karnad re-energized, expanded and refashioned the Indian theatre. By delineating woman’s position in the context of the contemporary post-colonial Indian society, Karnad draws a parallel line to be in touch with the past reality and mythical, folkloristic presentation and establishes continuity in such a manner that his plays acquires an epic dimension. The most important feature of his plays, viewed by different critics from different perspectives, is the creation of female protagonists in a radical manner. Although performing their appropriate social roles in the family and society, Karnad’s women characters also think about their personal desires and achieve them in their own way. In a conversation with Tutun Mukherjee, he relates “I used to know a married woman once who positively blossomed after she had an extra-marital affair. If womanhood finds fulfillment in love that happens to be outside marriage, why should that is considered wrong?” (43).
