A Symbolic play, 'Red Oleanders' is the English translation of 'Rakta Karabi' (1925) which is acclaimed as Tagore's best play. A powerful and poignant play, it describes the conflict between machine and the free human spirit. It is a critique of the ideology of regimentation and exploitation of technology leading to dehumanization. Here free life does not exist. Nandini is a symbol of undying love. Free life beckons to everyone to come out and share in the abounding joy of the sunlight. Love and life assert through death and recreate themselves again. It is play about the suffering and hope of our times.
