Abstract

India is a civilization that abounds in myth and myth is a mode for expressing reality and it is alogical and concrete.Indian mythology has become an interesting source for contemporary theatre practitioners. Epics are revisited and revitalized to suit the modern times, as well as all times.The stories from the ancient epics cover the breadth of human experience and the characters lend themselves easily to both modern psychological study and ethical re-evaluation. This paper focuses on relooking myth from two great Indian epics – the Mahabharatha and the Ramayana —through the lens of subalterns in the play Thus Spake Shoorpanakha, So Said Shakuni by Poile Sengupta.
