Malini is the princess. She
is young and beautiful. Though she is born in the palace among the riches (
treasures), comforts and happiness,she is never interested in the wordly
happiness. She is taught about Buddhism and she is the image of truth, love, vortues.
She doesn't believe on the Gods of books. She is not ready to follow the
traditional old religion. Though it was dangerous for her to accept the new
religion in the land of old creeds, she never bows to the face hood. The
Buddhism are against Malini's new creed. They are united to protect their old
traditional religion. They go to the palace demanding for the banishment of
Malini from the palace. To the great surprise of the king and the Brahmins, she
asks for own banishment. She is not satisfied with the comforts, pleasure,
treasures and luxurious life of the palace. Though she is young and beautiful
princess, she never wears ornaments. She wants to go out of the palace to
understand pain, poverty and the bitter reality of the outer world. She wants
to banished to go out of the palace to guide the people living in the darkness
and pathless sea. She wants to teach them the truth of her new religion.
Malini is the lover of truth, reality and humanity. She is the
preacher of peace, virtues and non-violence. She is not a common girl. The
queen herself tell that her daughter is the pure flame of fire. She is believe
to be the divine sprite. When she goes among the people, they regard her as the
Mother of the World. The people love her, keep her in their hearts and follow
her path "To err is human and the forgive is divine" is her ideology.
She makes the king ready to forgive the reasoner, Kemankar. At, the end of the
play, when Kemankar murders Supriya, Malini still request the king to forgive
the murderer. This show that Malini is really virtuous, large-heated, truly
religious, gentle,materially poor and spiritually rich and genius.
