Keywords:Feminine, Feminist, Inequality, Domination, Quest of Entity, Mute Protest
The present research is an immense endeavour to explore feminine and feminist sensibilities in the select plays of Vijay Tendulkar. It attempts to find out the place and position of women besides the root causes of gender inequality in the male dominated social structure. It is a minute study of weak and strong female characters who lose their identity and freedom for the sake of their male counterparts and for so called social conventions. Furthermore, it shows a sordid picture of patriarchal social structure, it's hallow moral standards, the gloomy facet of middle class life in the context of contemporary India where women undergo a series of sufferings and age-old tortures. It truly underlines the worst and obscure sensibilities of women in the light of several past centuries. Also it projects women's efforts in order to fulfill their desire for uplifting from the burdens of customs and norms. This study endeavours to analyse the psychological problems, dilemmas, conflicts and a series of sufferings and tortures of women at various levels in the light of select plays. It also concerns with women's striving for survival with respect and honour, their demand of freedom, dignity, equal rights and the perfection.
