Gandhian Truth: A Modern Day Freudian Therapy in Mahesh Dattani’s Bravely Fought the Queen
The principles of Gandhian Truth had strengthened the pre-independent India. This power made them identify with their inner strengths. This strength was represented in the groundbreaking social movements that claimed Poorna Swaraj and Self Reliance for a nation that had been subjected to a slave mentality for two centuries. However post-independence the large social groups have now fragmented into smaller individualized groups. These smaller groups lack an external source of expression in their confined territories. This confined situation adversely affects them psychologically. Thereby instilling the desire to familiarize with unknown individuals to overcome their emotional repression. The repressed truth of these individuals can be closely analyzed in the confined space of the characters in Mahesh Dattani’s Bravely Fought The Queen.
