The Play, Despite Having Been Written In A Comic Style, Is More Serious And Hard Hitting Compared With Other Tragic Plays Written On The Subject. The Characters In The Play Take Varying Positions On The Phenomenon Of Dowry And Even On Dowry Death Itself, Which Reflect Perspectives Prevalent In Mainstream Indian Society. In The List Of Characters There Is A Judge A Prosecutor And A Defence Lawyer Who Discuss Legal Angles, Which Are Not Without Interest. In Addition The Play Points To The Power And Sexual Jealousy Of Mother-In-Law Playing A Much Ignored But Extremely Significant Role In The Carrying Out Of These Unspeakably Beastial Crimes. Conquest At Noon, The Second Play, Is A Historical Fantasy. As Is Commonly Known, India Was Successfully Colonized By The British For Three Hundred Years. In This Play, The Author Creates A Historical Fantasy In Which India Was The Colonizing Power And The British Were The Subject Population., About The Author:- Rajesh Talwar, Is A Lawyer By Profession, A Prolific Writer, And Has Also Taught Law At Delhi University And Jamia Millia Islamia For A Period Of Six Years.
