The play KaruBasana is based on the novel written by Jibanananda Das in 1932. It is believed to be by and large an autobiographical novel of the poet that was published posthumously in 1986.

The play KaruBasana centres around a man (Hem) whose love for art (Karu) takes his mind away from this material world. He has a family, but his love for art makes him ignorant and lost in that world. His wife has become lifeless. His daughter suffers. His parents want him to grow in life, become rich enough to make the family happy. But he, being a part of the world of Passion for Art (KaruBasana), is not bothered about the materialistic desire. Hem represents an artiste. He is not an individual, but a representative of the inner soul of an artiste. As such the character is shown as two souls which have their internal conflict. He loves to spend time in nature. He loves to see the gentle breeze on the paddy fields and loves to listen to song of the nature. His creative mind meanders in the field of performing arts where he adores great performers and he dreams to be in their world of magnificent performances, oblivious about the fact that he is ignorant about his family, his wife, his daughter or his parents material requirement. When his wealthy uncle comes as a guest to stay in their house, his parents try to serve him beyond their capacity with an expectation that his influence will get their son well placed in life. However this man, when asked to talk about his career, he fails to do that and discusses artistic world with the uncle, who takes advantage of the situation and instead of helping him, exploits the family. The family continues to meet financial hardships but Hem hardly is moved by such failures. His love for art continues and his desire of creativity grows to an extent that one day, he seemingly is lost from this material world. He leaves behind a true passion that passes over generations, where family, money or influential rich relative hardly matters. What remains is the passion for art, KaruBasana.

Karubasana is almost like an autobiography of the poet which depicts the failure of a family person in search of true love for Art, which never got satisfied in this material world. Yet the passion continues..
