The Legend of Nandan is a superbly contemporary drama about a seventh-century hero, Nandan. A bonded labourer, Nandan is deeply discontented with his servile existence. Feeling threatened by his rise, the upper-caste Hindus deceive Nandan into submitting himself to a purificatory 'fire-bath', leading to his untimely death. This story can be interpreted as a saga of the suffering of suppre ssed people everywhere. It deconstructs the original legend of Nandan which are inalienable to Hindu culture, and challenges society's canonization of bhakti and religious fervour. Printed Pages: 102.
