Vijay Tendulkar is a modern Indian playwright who is known for writing plays in Marathi and English. Kamala, Silence! The Court is in Session, Ghashiram Kotwal and The Vultures are his popular plays that earned him national and international acclaim. Kamala is a topical play that is inspired by a real-life incident- the Indian Express expose by Ashwin Sarin who actually bought a girl from a rural flesh market and presented her at a Press Conference. Using this incident as a launching pad, Tendulkar raises certain cardinal questions regarding the values system of a modern success-oriented generation which is ready to sacrifice humanity itself. The central character of the play is a self-seeking journalist, Jaisingh Jadhav, who treats the women he has purchased from the flesh market as an object that can buy him a promotion in his job and a reputation in his professional life. He treats even his wife Sarita like a slave. Jaisingh himself is a slave to his employer. In this paper we shall concentrate on the slavery of the characters of play Kamala.
