"Vijay Tendulkar has been in the vanguard of Indian theatre for almost forty years. This prolific writer has 28 full-length plays to his credit, many of which have been published in major Indian languages besides Marathi."--BOOK JACKET. "This anthology contains five of Tendulkar's most significant plays. All the plays highlight the complexity of human relationships; all contain a latent critique of modern Indian society, mainly middle-class and lower middle-class; and in all of them women play significant roles in the plot. Yet, each play has its own distinct character and message. Kamala is an indictment of the success-oriented male society in which women find themselves mere stepping stones in men's achievements. Silence!... combines social criticism with the tragedy of an individual victimized by society. Sakharam Binder explores with great objectivity the complications of human nature, two necessary components of which are sex and violence; and The Vultures depicts, with a strange mixture of ruthlessness and compassion, the economic and moral degeneration of a family. Encounter in Umbugland is essentially a political satire, though not bereft of human dimensions."--BOOK JACKET. "Tendulkar's plays all reflect his multi-faceted creative genius, his keen sense of humour and his compassion. One of his greatest qualities is his ability to be involved with his creation and at the same time distance himself from it. He enters into the minds of his characters, but neither condemns nor judges them or their actions. Tendulkar's plays have been inspired by just about everything around him: real life experiences, hearsay, news items, films, other plays and literature in general. But, as he puts it, 'the basic urge has always been to let out my concerns vis-a-vis my reality: the human condition as I perceive it.'"--BOOK JACKET. "The translations in this volume have been handled with competence and sensitivity, preserving the flavour and the power of the Marathi originals."--BOOK JACKET
