Women Captives

Author(s): S. Anusha

Abstract: [Sanskrit literature talks of women who have become captives, often, for no fault of theirs. Whenever the situation called for revenge on their caretakers, waging of wars or flaunting of might, these women have been taken to custody. Under such circumstances, these women, have either fought with poise and courage or have succumbed to such pressure. This paper shall strive to portray the plight of such women captives as found in the Rāmāyaṇa, the Mahābhārata, the Bhāgavata Purāṇa and plays such as Mālavikāgnimitraṁ and Priyadarśikā.]
