Jalini is a play based on the same-name short story from the book Kairan. Written in the form of folklore, the story attempts to trace how the imprisonment of women in homes leads to their subjugation, and secondary place in society. It is not just Jalini’s body that is confined, but her heart and mind as well. And this just to satisfy the whims of a king unhinged with power. Jalini is not just a princess but a symbol of womanhood, and you will have to go watch the play if you want to find out if she finally breaks out of her confinement.
