The Hindu | Conflicted souls and wilful hearts
Conflicted souls and wilful hearts
This weekend, the Bengaluru-based Jagriti theatre group brings to us the story of Yayati, the character from The Mahabharata who exchanges his old age with his young son, Puru. Directed by Arundhati Raja, and penned by eminent playwright Girish Karnad, the play examines the moment of crisis that Puru’s decision sparks, and the dilemma it presents for him, his family, and Yayati. Excerpts from an email interview with Raja.
