Tughlaq By Girish Karnad. January 29, There is a lot of controversy among the historians about the character of Tughlaq but Karnad has presented this man as a man of opposites. The central theme of the play is the complexity in the character of Sultan Tughlaq, who has both the elements good as well as evil. He is a visionary man as well as man of action.

From the very first scene we come to know about the complex personality of Tughlaq, he can be considered as a learnt and an intelligent man. Tughlaq wanted his life as a garden of roses, where even thrones also give delight; his imagination expresses his sense about literature.

But theneven i remember few things like Tughlaq changed capital from Delhi to Daultabad, and from there again to Delhi. Tughlaq written by Girish Karnad in , is his best loved play, about an idealist 14th-century Sultan of Delhi, Muhammad bin Tughluq, and allegory on the Nehruvian era which started with ambitious idealism and ended up in disillusionment.

Karnad shows the evolution of Tughlaq from an idealist to a tyrant lusty for power and fame, something anyone, any Indian for that matter can relate to easily especially people who are familiar with the Nehruvian Era of Indian politics. Girish Karnad's play Tughlaq explores the character of one of the most fascinating kings to occupy the throne in Delhi, namely, Mohammed-bin-Tughlaq. He ruled for 26 years, a period of unparalleled cruelty and agonising existence for his subjects.

He's fascinating because though he was one of the most learned monarchs of Delhi, and had great ideas and a grand vision, his reign was also an abject failure. He started his rule with great ideals — of a unified India, of Hindus and Muslims being equal in the eyes of the state he abolished the onerous tax Jaziya on the Hindus and the Sultan being the first among equals.

He understood the value of money as not deriving from its intrinsic worth but from the promise behind it: and introduced copper coins. Yet in 20 years his reign had degenerated into an anarchy and his kingdom had become a "kitchen of death".

Girish Karnad's play explores why this happened. The play was immensely popular at the time it was produced India had, within the same span of nearly 20 years a mere coincidence? The issues posed by the play remain relevant even today, not only in a political sense, but also for organisations.

The play recaptures the significant events starting shortly after Tughlaq's ascension to the throne: his proclamations of idealism, his calling upon his people to be a part of the building of a new empire, of prosperity, peace and amity. But he ascended the throne by dubious means, killing his father and brother during prayer time, though no one was sure. This led to a lack of credibility among his followers from the time he ascended the throne — no one believed what he professed.

The play outlines his clever plots to eliminate his opponents and his surviving an assassination attempt by his own courtiers. This was a turning point in his life: he decided to shift his capital from Delhi to Daulatabad, ordered every single subject to move from Delhi, banned prayer altogether, and imposed unspeakable cruelties on his subjects. The miseries of the people during the journey, the corruption that was huge and endemic, and Tughlaq's progressive alienation and isolation from his people are dramatically portrayed.

The play ends with scenes of utter chaos and misery in the kingdom, and Tughlaq being left alone, having been abandoned by those who survived him, that is. Major Characters in the Play. Tughlaq - In the play, Tughlaq emerges as a headstrong and idealistic ruler. The opening scenes reflect the idiosyncrasies and eccentricities of this character.

She later murders Tughlaq orders her to be stoned to death for the unwarranted act. For Muhammad and Aziz politics holds a common interest. It is a fantastic world. Like Muhammad he also makes use of religion and caste for his personal gains. Laugh, the fool you laugh. Dance, dance. Aazam- He is a close friend of Aziz and his partner in the play. Aziz is undeniably the more cunning of the two.

Najib- He is a politician and a shrewd contriver, a Hindu, who later embraced Islam. Sheikh-Imam-ud-Din- He is a maulvi and probably the harshest critic of Tughlaq.
