Abstract

The present paper is an attempt to analyze that whether by positioning a woman on the rank of a Devi does the society strips her off of her basic instincts of pleasure and sorrow? The paper seeks to examine how Karnad through his protagonist Rani,in the play Nagamandala,explores the politics of rendition of woman in a society whereby aggrandizing a woman to the rank of Rani/Lakshmi, it subordinates her in both the domains of the instincts and culture.
