    Marriage being the universal social knot is presented in its forms of dissonance and disturbance in the play as the Father deciphers the concept of marriage as “Marriage is a gamble No escaping the fact – marriage is a gamble” Scene Nine p 89 The play brings out the stark contrast between times gone by and the present by reflecting upon the social customs of marriage that have changed considerably Karnad uestions the capacity of the characters to deal with difficulties and ultimately presents the risk of marital discord that is increased with passing time The play presents rigidly conceived roles of a husband and a wife where the characters are seen as survivors for they have failed to meet their partner’s psychological needs The intimate relationship fails to allow the spouses to come together to receive and devote themselves to each other The partial and incomplete negotiations in various phases of their married lives further lead to marital failure The playwright chooses to become that man who willingly presents the marital discord in his writing which further helps readers to interpret their lives with caution His play rather provides with ideology that becomes imperative command to his readers through Mother – “Don’t do the same thing with your life” p 90 His writing initiates and contributes to the society by providing an understanding of the meaning of marriage through representation of various social problems confronted in the present day worldTo read further about marital discord in the play please follow the link below and check article no 43

    This play would be so much enjoyable if only it was a little less hard to understand A tale involving an arranged marriage in modern India and all the complications surrounding it 'Wedding Album' is supposed to be Girish Karnad's 'important new English language play' according to Amrit Srinivasan Instead it's his completely passable new English language play Scene Six made no sense to me nor did Scenes One and Five Nor did the Radhabai side story I mean is Vidula really her daughter or what? It's all slightly confusing Scene Three suddenly introduces four new characters two of whom have been mentioned before and none of whom have been explained I also didn't see the point of Vivan Kaikini All in all it doesn't live up to the supreme status of one of Karnad's previous plays 'Tughla' It won't matter much if you give 'Wedding Album' a miss

    The classic extremities that exist in a middle class family aiming for higher acceptance level in a society is beautifully outlined here Ramdas may be a beloved brother for Father but VidulaHema and Amma have to suppress their disenchantment to themselves Radhabai Amma's constant war is a common phenomena in every kitchen Rohit being nonchalant towards Tapasya's proposal with relatives and later with Pratibha speaks of the boy's outlook for love and powerGirish Karnad's best scenes in this play for me is when neighbor's son professes his love Vidula's rebuke when caught red handed by brigades and lastly the monologue of Ashwin about his NRI mindsetFew scenes of Sirur are bit over dramatic along with dialogues during Vidula's internet cafe

    A whole negative view of Indian society True such things happen in India and else where too except probably the arranged marriage part But every possible negativity coming down to one family did not impress me
