Abstract

This article is mainly focussed on the contemporaneity of Karnad's play Yayati. Though the play retells the age- old story of the mythical king, Karnad has given the traditional tale a new meaning highly relevant to today's life.In the play, there is the presence of the theme of duties and responsibilities of father upon son and vice-versa. In this paper it was well analysed between Yayati, father and Pooru, son. Contemporaneity of the play is wonderfully depicted in Chitralekha-Yayati dialogue.Chitralekha tries to take a place in a male- dominated world .Chitralekha challenges the social obligation and moral laws.
