Tagore spoke of women’s empowerment, about a woman’s rightful place, about her power and respect, about how she can turn the course of things in one’s life much before these ideas became popular fads. Chandalika and Chitrangada are two beautiful, lyrical and yet extremely powerful dance dramas in verse by Tagore that emphatically place the woman on equal terms with the man, if not above him in courage and conviction.
