In several stories of Karadi Tales

In several stories of Karadi Tales, the popular audio book series for kids Karnad has played the role of Karadi, the Sootradhar (narrator). In the audio book of Kalam’s autobiography by Charkha Audio books Wings of Fire,. Karnad has been the voice of APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President of India.
Girish Karnad is one of the leading playwrights in India. He is associated to the Kannada theatre. Although rooted in Indian mythology and history, his plays at the same time convey a strong and unmistakable modern sensibility. The existentialist crisis of modern man is very easily conveyed through strong individuals who are locked in intense psychological and philosophical conflicts through the medium of myths. Karnad has been accused of escaping into the past, said Laxmi Chandrashekhar, an academic and an active figure in Kannada theatre. But the use of mythology in most modern literature validates individual experience and universalizes it. And I think Kaman has been able to do that.
