REVIEW FOR ASTAVADHANAM RECITAL BY RALLABANDI KAVITA PRASAD
Kavita is all set to make the Prucchakas feel like train wrecks! Watch the battle tonite.
The Andhra Pradesh State Cultural Council is presenting an Astavadhanam Recital By Dr Madugula Nagaphani Sarma, as a part of 'Avadhana Sapthaham', its programs honoring the legendary poets, the Kopparapu Brothers.
Avadhanam is a literary feat which involves concentration, resonance, command over poetic metres, creativity and wide scholarship. In Astavadhanam, the Avadhani (the scholar) takes on eight subjects posed by Prucchakas (subject scholars) at a time, while in Satavadhanam, he takes hundred subjects at a time.
Kavita Prasad will not use pen or paper to write down the querries of the Prucchakas, using his memory to not only recite all the questions and answers but also to identify the scholar who posed the questions.
The Chief Guest for the occasion will be K Prabhakar Reddy, IAS., Addl. Secretary to Chief Minister; and the event will be presided over by Acharya Sumati Narendra.
