In folk style and form, the film throws open a question as to who is the husband — the person who marries an innocent girl and indulges in self pleasures or the person who gives the real and complete experience of life. Colonialists and Margi tradition belonged to the same caste or group. She is true in her ordeal. Her material reality has not changed. Karnad, by creating this verbal icon, has tried to focus the social problems. On one side he describes the bad effects of colonialism and on the other opposes the revivalism of Sanskrit literary criticism. We could also extend desi to suggest the colonial as opposed to the metropolitan. Economic plunder was at the core of Margi-videsi conspiracy. References Devy, G. But with the advent of Britishers, Margi again started enjoying the hey-day and desi became uninfluential. Jayashri in prominent roles. Margi joined her hands with videsi and efforts were made to make desi powerless.

The snake falls in love with Rani due to the potion and takes the form of Appanna at night, praises her long hair and talks a lot about her parents and listens to her attentively. Image Source: Lanaguage in India The play is based on a rural setting and centred around the life of Rani, who is the everyday submissive rural Indian woman who is married off to a man by her parents, who arrange the marriage without taking into consideration her wishes. His play NagaMandala is consciously anchored in the ancient theory and tradition of Indian theatre. Karnad through the play exposes the exploitation and incarceration of women that occurs through the institution of marriage and how myths display the fears of men in society and are thus inherently patriarchal and are used in order to control and restrict the actions of women. Transformation is the base of Naga-Mandala. Today, a new awareness is emerging in all Indian bhasa languages , i. The plot of this central story, can be summarized as follows: young Rani, recently married to Appana, is locked inside the house by her husband. Focusing on the four different stories which make up the play Naga-Mandala, it is seen that these four different stories are on four narrative levels. This stands to show that women in society lose the agency to question but when they violate the prescribed patriarchal norms, they are questioned immediately. This volume has included all the —isms: from the period of Aristotle to the present one, but it fails to pay any attention to nativism. The frame story contains three other stories, each one of them inside the previous story. Literature is a kind of knowledge about human existence with reference to the cosmos, nature, society and the inner mental process of human beings. Nativism is a reaction to the imposed non-native models and standards, which are accepted in an ambivalent sprit of slavish submission. The Cobra Naga then falls in love with Rani. It is to show how marriage is a patriarchal institution that has always been unfair to women.

Appanna spends most of his time with his concubine and comes home only for lunch. Jayashri in prominent roles. However, she gains respect due to events that unfold during the trial.
