These plays are rooted in history and folk myth as well as in contemporary reality. The socio-economic milieus offers a view of India rarely seen in literature.
Mahasweta Devi dramatized one of her major novels, Mother of 1084, and four of her finest stories, convinced that as plays they would be more accessible to the largely illiterate audience she wanted to reach.
