PREVIEW FOR DRAMA FESTIVAL BY MAHATHI KALA SRAVANTHI
It is not very easy to visualize the Income Tax department negotiating for something
or taking no for an answer, so here's your chance, as they portray scenes from
Sri Krishna Rayabaram. Even the taxman has to be Krishna when he is playing Krishna.
Mahathi Kala Sravanthi is a cultural organization that was established about 10 years back, with an intention to create a platform for talented artists of the rural areas to display their ability. The organization has been successful in achieving its objective, and has been organizing state level drama competitions for the past few years. It also felicitates reputed personalities periodically.
Beginning on the 21st of this month, the drama competition for this year are being held, and the program schedule is as below:
21st December 2001 · Sree Krishna Rayabaram (Play) · Felicitation to Nagi Reddy (theater artist) for his social service activities
and for helping poor artists
22nd December 2001 · Lalitha sangeetam by I Vijaya Laxmi · Devotional songs by J S Sruti (a 9-year-old) · Varna Chitram - a drama on casteism in India and the problems of dalit
women · Bobbili Chitram - various scenes depicting the importance of Paparayudu
and his opponent Vijayaramaju, and supported by the characters of Bussi, Hyderjung
23rd December 2001
The final day will see the Income Tax department sleuths presenting the "Rayabaram"
scene where Krishna advises Duryodhana to return to the Pandavas their kingdom,
for which Krishna is made fun of and told that the Pandavas will not get land
of even a needle point's size.
