Abstract

Girish Karnad was an applaudable author, who unveiled the complexities of women’s life as well
uplifted them from various atrocities through his sublime jottings with his acclaimed works. The
Fire and the Rain astonishingly picturises the consequences held upon women by the
domineering male authority through the characters .Nittilai and Vishaka yearn for laissez-aller,
despite the age-old phallocentric powers that rely upon women across cultures. Though they are
hegemonised by the overweening powers, they moved in accordance to their rightful path to
achieve the life which they yearn for apart from the institution of marriage. Karnad indubitably
explored the woman psychological conundrums that trammel up their lives by exquisite portrayal
of disparate psyche of female characters. Vishaka and NIttilai, from disparate communities seek
for the achievement of same wish to unchain the enslavement so as to live freely with eccentric
happiness. These characters ride roughshod over their authoritative male supremacy to unfetter
the manacles of subjugation.
