The paper discusses the most troubled aspects of the relationship between caste and gender in post-colonial India. The play Kayadaan is about the inter-caste marriage. Arun Athavale is a Dalit who marries Jyoti Devalikar, a Brahmin woman. He is abusive towards Jyoti even during her pregnancy but she stays committed to him. Ultimately, she goes back to her own family. The play portrays domestic violence of a Dalit husband on his Brahmin wife. This play indexes the various stances on caste politics itself.
