Abstract

The present paper is a discussion of Girish Karnad’s play ‘Naga Mandala’ in the light of women’s brave struggle against patriarchy, male-dominance and gender discourse. The lives of women have been manipulated by the patriarchy in all ages and cultures, undoubtedly in various ways by prescribing values, norms, gender roles and ethics to keep the male dominance at the top. Patriarchy has been depicted as a system of social structures and practices in which men dominate, oppress and exploit women. ‘Naga Mandala’ reflects a strong  streak of feminism. The play questions the patriarchal moral code which demands the loyalty of a woman to his husband but not the loyalty of a man to his wife. In this feminist play Girish Karnad has created a world where the female protagonist is struggling to establish her identity and space of honour, and also posing a challenge to the norms and values made by the male-dominated society.
