REVIEW FOR SHANTI PRASTHANAM - A PLAY BY RASARANJANI
You paid much more to see SRK do it on screen than Rasaranjini charges to have the artists do it at your home. Well, they'd perhaps do it if that would save Telugu theater.
Rasaranjini is organising a play called Shanthi Prasthanam, at Sri Thyagaraja Gana Sabha, on the 16th and the 17th of October.
Shanthi Prasthanam is a story about Ashoka, the third monarch of the Mauryan Empire. Ashoka's reign as Emperor began with a series of wars and bloodshed, culminating in the Kalinga War of 260BC. The mammoth loss of life and suffering witnessed on the battlefield made him turn away from war. He subsequently became deeply influenced by Buddhism and adopted the dharma, which consists of basic virtuous teachings that can be practiced by all men regardless of social origin.
The play is written and directed by B P Prasad Rao. The entry is a very nominal Rs 10 per head.
Rasaranjini was established by eminent stage actors Nagabhushan Sarma and Duggirala Someshwar Rao. The basic aim of the association is to promote theater as an art. It stages a play every month of the year, and tries to create awareness among the audience.
