It also tries to shed light upon a side of the Emperor that is very rarely highlighted. In the play, Yama has been sent by Lord Indra to fetch Shivaji and also his ideas to heaven. On their way to heaven, Shivaji tells Yama that he has forgotten his ideas back in the human world and thus returns to the earth to get them. He keeps his Turban with Yama as collateral, but Shivaji doesn’t return for long. Yama is thus forced to run around looking for a head to fit the turban on. The turban thus becomes a metaphor for Shivaji’s ideas.
The play then, very effectively, goes on to show how political parties have wrongly used Shivaji to gain mileage amongst the masses.
Duration of the play: 135 minutes
