Tughlaq by Girish Karnad 

​If you’d like to finish a book in one sitting read Tughlaq by Girish Karnad, a play about an idealistic madcap Emperor whose reign is anything but idealistic, or for that matter successful. 

In the introduction to the book, the famous Kannada writer UR Ananthamurthy says, ‘One can enjoy the play without paying much attention to its rich and complex symbolism and its the subtle weaving of different motives’. 

Rightly so, because the play uses all the classic theatrical elements of a solid premise, rapidly unfolding conflicts and unforgettable characters… Three factors that hook us in immediately.
