Rabindranath Tagore wrote the poetry book Chitra.
‘Chitra’ is a famous poetry written by the renowned Indian poet and Nobel laureate, Rabindranath Tagore. It was first published in 1913 as part of his collection of plays titled ‘Chitra & Other Poems’. The play is based on a story from the Hindu epic, Mahabharata, specifically focusing on the character of Chitrangada, who is mentioned briefly in the original epic.
The story revolves around Princess Chitrangada, the daughter of King Chitravahana of Manipur. Chitrangada grows up to be a strong and independent woman, skilled in warfare and hunting. However, she laments her lack of femininity and grace, feeling that these qualities make her less attractive.
Who wrote the famous play Chitrangada?
One day, while hunting in the forest, Chitrangada meets Arjuna, one of the Pandaba princes. Arjuna is charmed by her beauty and strength, and he expresses his desire to marry her. Chitrangada is initially hesitant because she believes that her martial prowess makes her unsuitable for a traditional feminine role as a wife. However, she eventually agrees to marry Arjuna on the condition that she will retain her warrior-like qualities.
After their marriage, Chitrangada’s desire to maintain her independence clashes with Arjuna’s desire for a more traditional wife. Despite their love for each other, they struggle to reconcile their differences. However, through various trials and tribulations, they eventually learn to accept and appreciate each other for who they are.
