The present study aims to bring out the role of a veil along with the pain and suffering a woman has to undergo, to ensure equality of rights as compared to her counterpart. She is constrained within the four walls, be it the four walls of her veil (Burkha) or be it the walls of restriction. The objective of the study is to bring forth the oppression faced by women, through the work of Imtiaz Dharker’s 'Purdah I'. Therefore, it is an attempt to understand the hyped importance and value of a veil in a woman’s life and the role it plays in the society. Hence through systematic study, it aims to raise the question of importance of a veil in a society where this “Gender is negligible” and yet plays a significant role in understanding whether a veil is a form of oppression and suffering or a form of freedom, power, and security in a woman’s life.
