Abstract: »Mahesh Dattani’s conviction to dramatize sensitively the tormented soul of the victims of Child Sexual Abuse is an untraded path in the tradition of Indian English Drama. Dattani’s insightful depiction of the life of Mala and Shanta, the victims of incest strikes a chord with his audience in Thirty Days in September. The after effects of sexual abuse like stigma, horrible memory, perversions and reclusion added with the rehabilitative measures of counseling and moral support from the near and dear ones have been portrayed with the realistic actions and artistic dialogues.« (Source: Research Scholar)
