This man sold his wife and won accolades.

The Sri Annamaya Kala Peetham cultural organisation is celebrating its 18th anniversary today. This organisation has produced a play, Satya Harish Chandra, which will be staged at the Ravindra Bharathi as a part of the organisation's anniversary celebrations.

Satya Harishchandra is the story of King Harishchandra who is forced to leave Ayodhya with his family, by Vishwamitra and Nakshatra. Nakshatra further employs various means to torture and scare them, but Harishchandra braves it all.

Harishchandra is forced to sell his wife Taramati, and son Rohan. He also sells himself to a low caste cemetery owner, Veerabahu, and gets renamed as Veerdas.

When Rohan dies at the hands of Vishwamitra, Taramati takes Rohan to the cemetery. But even after Harishchandra recognizes her, he asks her to give money to pay for the last rites.

Vishwamitra puts Harishchandra to the final test by forcing him to behead Taramati. When the king passes the test, the sage returns his kingdom, and also grants him half of his own powers.

The play was popularised by the artist D Subbha Rao. As a tribute to this famous dramatist, Sri Annamaya Kala Peetham will also be celebrating his 16th Jayanthi. This play has been directed by K Kutumba Rao and authored by Balijaya Palli Lakshmi Kantam. A total of 15 actors will be participating in this play.

Please contact K Kutumba Rao on 98488-23597 for further details.
