Dr. Chandrashekhar Kambar`s Jokumaraswamy succeeds to identify various manifestations of patriarchy and its impact on the lives of women.

In this play, Chandrashekhar Kambar, an outstanding playwright makes the women characters expose and oppose patriarchal oppression. In Jokumaraswamy, Gowda is the product of the patriarchal society which sustains the conceptual framework that maintains structures of domination. He regards women and nature as irrational beings that are present to be dominated and exploited for the needs of man. Patriarchal society sustains false notions about men and keeps them blind to their real side. By the wisdom of ages, Shari and Ningi in Jokumaraswamy examine the weakness and hypocrisy of Gowda and stand testimony to the fact that women are wiser than men. Moreover, they scrutinize the patriarchal systems of domination that oppress women and reveal the false ideologies of patriarchy.  

Further, these women have a strong concern for nature and claim it`s intrinsic value and inherent worth. By showing the representation of patriarchy in religious practices and the fashioning of gods, Kambar points out its pit-falls and calls for a new religion that acknowledges the contribution of women and by exposing the false centrality of man, Kambar discredits the illusion of superiority. Further, he shows the shortcomings of conceptual structures and places women at the centre of discussion. Thus, this paper tries to fulfill its purpose of feminist study that insists on the need for a revolution in the `social, sexual and economic structures` that exploit women.

Jokumaraswamy drama is directed by the theatre legend B.V.Karanth with lilting music of Dr. Chandrashekar Kambar.
