Andha Yug is a play about the consequences of war, the physical and moral devastation is brings, destroying both the victor and the vanquished by its debasing and dehumanizing effect on the individual and the society. The idea has been projected against the backdrop of the great Mahabharata war of ancient times, through a ruthless and searching examination of the motives and conduct of its principal participants and their situation during its concluding days.
This play has been staged extensively not only in Hindi, but in most Indian languages, and by groups spread all over the country.
