On the occasion of its 32nd anniversary, Yuvakalavahani is organising Dharma Natakotsavam, a festival of stage plays on Dharma (responsibility), from 28th to 30th December, at the Potti Sreeramulu Telugu University auditorium. A mythological play and two epic plays will be staged during the 3 days of the festival.

Today, the last day, Yuvakalavahini is staging Sramanakam, an epic play on Lord Buddha. The play is written by Dr. N Lakshmi Parvathi & D Vijaya Bhaskar, and directed by Patro. The chief guest for the evening is M Murali Mohan, cine actor.

The play deals with an argument about the status of women during that period. A women's group named Mandari was formed in this period to protect women from male chauvinism. While talking about the issue and other problems like animal sacrifice and other meaningless rituals, the play presents Gautam Buddha at the time when he leaves his palace in search of truth.

Another king, Nanda, too, follows him. This happens at a time when enemies were planning to occupy Nanda's kingdom. Sundari, Nanda's wife, inspired by Buddha's teachings, fights the enemies and restores the royalty. That was when Sundari prevailed upon the Buddha to permit housewives to embrace Buddhism and observe austerities, a practice called Sramanakam.

The entry is free for everyone. Please contact Y K Nageshwara Rao at 99086-30555 for further details.
