Chitra is a one-act play written by Rabindranath Tagore , first published in English in by the India Society of London. Chitra has been performed worldwide and has been adapted into several different formats, such as dance. They ask Chitra who she is and what is bothering her, to which she replies that she is the daughter of the king of Manipur and has been raised like a boy as her father had no male heir. She is a great warrior and hero despite being born as a woman, but has never had the chance to truly live as a woman or learn how to use "feminine wiles". Chitra explains that she had met the warrior hero Arjuna after seeing him in the forest while she was hunting for game. Despite knowing that he had pledged several vows including one for twelve years of celibacy , Chitra fell instantly in love with him. The following day she tried to approach him and plead her case, but Arjuna turned her away due to his vows.
It is as relevant today as it was when Gurudev visualized her. A woman of substance believes in her independence and freedom of expression………. Through her dance production, Ranjana, recounts the tale of Chitrangada, a Manipuri princess, who through her passion for Arjuna the great warrior from the epic Mahabharata, came to realize that her true power and potential as a woman lay in her duty towards society.
