“Tughlaq” by Girish Karnad, a thirteen-scene play about the turbulent rule of Mohammad Bin Tughlaq. This seems on the outlook as a historical play, but is appropriate to the contemporary politics of any era, especially in the current global scenario.
The play Tughlaq explores the series of events that led to the downfall of one of the most fascinating kings to occupy the throne in Delhi.

The vision of Tughlaq to unify India and keep religion out of politics cost him dearly. He put forth reformist ideas to bring about trust in his Hindu citizens. The play covers the consequences that followed this decision. The play starts with Tughlaq being portrayed as a strict yet respected ruler. The play dramatically highlights how the business class of the country always tried to influence the decisions of the Ruler.

 The play also highlights how religion can be misused to bring in the common man into a foul play. The play outlines his clever plots to eliminate his opponents and ends with scenes of utter chaos and misery in the kingdom, and Tughlaq being left alone, having been abandoned by those who survived him. The play intends at capturing the helplessness of a great ruler, his downfall no matter how big the dreams and the visions in the hands of the religion and business class
