Indian drama in English translation has made bold innovations and fruitful experiments in terms of both thematic concerns and technical virtuosities. The present volume discusses the contribution of three significant playwrights, namely: Rabindranath Tagore, Badal Sircar, and Mahasweta Devi. All these dramatists have written their plays originally in Bengali, but these have been translated into English.
As a result thereof, they have received worldwide acclaim. A detailed study of these plays shows that these works are the symbols of the new resurgence in Indian literature, society and culture and have been instrumental in giving new shape to modern Indian drama.
