Abstract
Girish Karnad, a versatile genius, is considered as one of the pillars of Indian English Drama. Even though Karnad wrote very few plays, he has earned a prestigious place in Indian writing in English. In his third play Hayavadana, Karnad uses conventions of folk theatre. This play is about the search of identity in the complex human relationships. It reveals friendship of two persons and their love towards a woman. This play presents how all the characters become victims in the hands of fate. It is also a search for completeness. Karnad exemplifies incompleteness in three levels human, animal and celestial of creation in the world. Elephant headed Ganesha has human body, so even though he is divine he does not have single complete form. Devadatta, Kapila and Padmini donít possess completeness even though there is transplantation. Even Hayavadana cannot become complete man as he desires but becomes a complete horse. The present paper depicts how wonderfully the playwright dramatizes the events and incidents in the lives of the characters to explore the search for completeness.
