Kamala is a bold and classic play by Vijay Tendulkar based on a true story. The play brings to the fore tribal slave trade and male chauvinism, both of which are issues within our current Indian society. Tendulkar’s Kamala is a fitting tribute to the plights of the underprivileged tribal and rural citizens of India. India’s most prominent playwright effectively blends together urban sophistication and rural simplicity. In that process he convincingly brings attention to the similar forms of oppression that women endure, regardless of their social class.
