Silence! The Court is in Session Alongwith Mohan Rakesh, Badal Sircar and Girish Karnad, Vijay Tendulkar has pioneered modern Indian theatre. A leading contemporary playwright, screen and television writer, literary essayist, political journalist and social commentator, Tendulkar has been the most influential dramatist and theatre personality in Marathi for over five decades. His plays have been translated into English and many Indian languages and staged to applause and acclaim the world over. Silence! The Court is in Session exposes the basic hypocrisy and double standards of the middle-class society through a mock trial of Leela Benare, a school teacher. The present critical study examines and analyses the play from the point of view of Tendulkar’s dramaturgy, his social concerns and characterization so as to bring it closer to students in our universities. Shakti Batra has been Vice-Principal, Dyal Singh College (University of Delhi). He has also taught at the Kabul University and the International university of Kyrgyzstan,, Bishkek as well as students from the Tibetan Public Service Commission, Dharamsala, and Kiyushu University, Japan.
