The teacher-student relationship hasn’t remained unaffected; here too, power and superiority came into play. TIMES CHANGE but situations seldom do. Past or present, exigencies almost always manage to dictate an individual’s performance in the light of his social standing. ‘Ek Aur Dronacharya’–play was written by Shankar Shesh, was recent. It worked as a re-interpretation of the character of Dronacharya in the light of the modern education system.
Prof. Arvind in the web of the allegiance that powers on. It depicted how men of morality disintegrate in the face of social pressure.
The situation can be compared to the episode in Mahabharata where Dronacharya, faced by his poverty and his wife’s tearing remarks, agrees to instruct the Pandavas and the Kauravas.
How did Dronacharaya become the biased teacher? What conditions led Arvind to compromise while reporting a student’s act of cheating?
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The teacher-student relationship hasn’t remained unaffected; here too, power and superiority came into play. The play depicted how corruption has overpowered this world.
