In 'Tara' , a play by Mahesh Dattani, we see gender discrimination as the main theme. In this play he sketches the agony of a girl child in male dominated Indian society.  From the very beginning itself we can experience this discrimination . This is not only the case of Tara but the entire womenhood.  The conversation between father and son is an example for this: "the men in the house were deciding on whether they were going for hunting while women looked after the cave".

Another important thing we have to keep in mind is that it is not man who perpetuate this discrimination but women themselves. Tara's mother prefer male child to female one.  The story of Tara is a blind contradiction to Indian culture where women are considered and respected as Godesses. Tara, Bharati's daughter, experiences partiality from her mother. Tara is not given opportunity to live in. She might have shone like a tara (star) if given a chance.
