In the famous playwright Girish Karnad’s Tughlaq, the protagonist, Mohammed Bin Tughlaq, had great ideas and a grand vision but his reign was an abject failure. Tughlaq was known for his reformist ideas, one of which was shifting the capital from Delhi to Daulatabad in order to have a capital at the centre of his province. While showing the consequences of his decisions, the end inscenes of the play shows utter chaos and misery leaving Tughlaq alone.
Bhishm Sahani’s epic play ‘Kabira Khada Bazar Mein’ shows how a simple man’s thought and intellect, by witnessing years of injustice to humankind, prejudice, and blind faith, turned him into a mystical poet. Kabira upholds the truth that religion comes after humanity in the simplest manner of it’s kind. Inspite of the torture in the name of religion, class and status in society, Kabira refuses to yield and stand behind the sufferer.
