  6. 6. The play Final Solutions, written by Mahesh K. Dattani discusses the theme of communal riots, hatred and bitterness of Hindus and Muslims against each other.Plot is set in Gujarat. The play is divided into three acts. Basically, Final Solutions is the story of a Gujarati family that consists of four people – grandmother (Daksha/ Hardika), father (Ramnik), mother (Aruna), and daughter (Smita); and their encounter with two muslim boys. Play starts with past thinking of Hardika/ Daksha.Then arrives two stranger’s story moves on by the clash with family members . Brief summary
  7. 7. Aruna represents second generation and sumita represents third generation. There is mother daughter conflict is play because of lack of education. Sumita was studying and she was having a knowledge what is right and what is wrong while Aruna was was illerate she was highly indulged into traditional beliefs or we can religious belief. Mother- daughter conflict is noticed in play because one educated and other was uneducated. Sumita has liberal thoughts while Aruna has orthodox thoughts so this caused conflict between mother and daughter. Mother – daughter conflict
  8. 8. Smita, daughter of Aruna and is a girl of modern period. She believes in liberal ideology and she doesn't support her mother's activities from heart, though she helps her in all the household chores and work of her God. She loves her mother but at one point of time she feels stifled and expresses her feelings to Aruna. She requests her mother not to bind her with prejudices any more. She even did not have hatred for the Muslims as her close friend is a Muslim girl whose name is Tasneem. Smita is a girl who believes in liberal ideology.
  9. 9. She does help her mom in her pooja work because she loves her mom but she doesn't personally support all the things from heart. Rather at one point of time she gets tired of her mother's prejudices and conveys her feelings to her mother. And Smita quoted as: "Please, mummy, don't try so hard! You are breaking me. Ever since I was small, you have been at me to go to the temple, make garlands, listen to you reading from the Gita. I love you, mummy, that's why I did that. I listened to u and I obeyed you. I tolerated your prejudices only because you are my mother. Maybe I should have told you earlier, but I'm telling you now, I can't bear it! Please don't burden me anymore! I can't take it!"
  10. 10. In third act, Smita openly refuses and criticizes her mother‟s conservative attitude and hollow religious orthodoxy when Aruna prevents Javed from touching the bucket with which she regularly fetches drinking water. It is with the same water that she bathes her gods. Hence, Aruna is afraid that the bucket gets defiled and even the water being carried in it gets „contaminated‟just by the touch of a Muslim.Here, contamination is less a matter of bodily cleanliness and more inner consequence of the consumption “ How can I, when I won’t even harm a got or a chicken?. She was having fear in her inner self.
  11. 11. This is exactly what Smita tries to put into her mother‟s head when Aruna enters into an argument with her about the time-honoured religious values and point out the eternal truth behind them: ARUNA. . . I shall uphold what I believe is the truth. SMITA. It is the truth only because you believe in it. ARUNA. No! I will not accept that. Not from you. SMITA. Why not? ARUNA. I will not! SMITA. You have to face it. You have to admit you are wrong! ARUNA. You cannot tell me that I am wrong! SMITA. Why not? ARUNA. Because . . . because I will not accept that from someone who is not proud of her inheritance. (Smita sits down, placing the brass pot lightly on her lap.) You cannot criticize what you are running away from. You will be prejudiced.
  12. 12. A mother often regards her children as a part of herself. Out of this natural motherly instinct which is generally triggered by care and concern, she may, sometimes, try to make the children wholly dependent on her for everything and control their lives so that they will always remain safe and secured in life. If her attempts fail, she may be temporarily upset but soon reconciles herself to the given situation. Smita is secular in her view on religion and its purpose, whereas, Aruna is a zealous follower of Hinduism. In spite of their ideological differences, both Aruna and Smita wrap up their prejudices and end the conflict on a reconciliatory note. Smita apologizes to her mother, “I am sorry. I mean it” to which Aruna also positively reacts, “So this is the end”. Are you happy?
