Some Telugu theater this weekend? Have Rs. 10?

Rasaranjani, a cultural organisation promoting Telugu theater, is organising Jai Bharat, a play, as part of its monthly stagings, on 16th and 17 September, at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha.

Jai Bharat is based at the time that Prithviraj had married the daughter of the king of Kanauj Jaichand – in true Lochinvar style, he carried her away in the middle of her wedding. Jaichand felt that the pride of the Kanauj had been stung, and had to be avenged.

It so happened that an Afghan ruler Shihab-ud-din Muhammad Ghori or Mohammad of Ghur was gathering his forces at the frontiers of India, in preparation for forcing his way through to Delhi. The Afghan was surprised by an invitation from Jaichand, who offered his help in any way possible, to eliminate Prithviraj Chauhan.

Prithviraj defeated Ghori in the Battle of Tarain in 1191AD, and had him captured. Ghori appealed to him to set him free, praising his better nature. Prithviraj made the grand gesture of setting him free, without realising that Ghuri would never mend his nature. The Afghan simply sent in for reinforcements and launched another attack the very next year.

The battle of 1192 was fought at Tarain again, and this time Ghori crushed the Rajputs, with the help of Jaichand's wits. After taking Prithviraj prisoner, Ghori ordered the eyes of Prithviraj gouged out, and made him a subject of ridicule in his court.

An archery competition was held in Ghori's kingdom, and Prithviraj, a skilled archer of repute who could target just by the sound, was also brought for this competition to ridicule him further. Prithviraj refused to shoot his arrow on the orders of Ghori's generals, being a king himself. Ghori himself asks Prithviraj to shoot at the target, and instead, Prithviraj turned around and, locating the source of the voice, shot his arrow straight into Ghori's throat, killing him instantly, and shouting Jai Bharat.

The play is written and directed by Malladi Sudheer. Malladi Sagar enacts Prithviraj, Malladi Ravishankar is Jaichand, and Malladi Sudheer plays Ghori. The entry is through tickets of Rs. 10 per head.
