Sri Krishna is perhaps the most encouraging role model to all negotiators across the world, ranging from those in local union disputes to Bill Clinton. If He failed, then what's with the rest of us, the mere mortals? Here's the tale retold for perhaps a millionth time.

P Chandra Mouli Reddy established the Ballery Raghava Kala Samithi in 1991 to promote Pauranika Padya Natakalu (mythological musical dramas) among the current youth. Ever since its inception, the Samithi has been staging dramas at various places like Nellore, Rajamundry, Prakasham, Guntur, Vijayawada, Ballery, Ananthapur and New Delhi (the A P Bhavan). And it has won many accolades for its services to theater.

The Samithi is today staging a musical drama called "Sri Krishna Rayabaram", and is going to felicitate two prominent theater personalities on the occasion. They are K V Reddy, a reputed stage artist and a "Gana Kala Nidhi" titleholder from Nellore, and Siddappa Naidu, a senior stage artist and the recent Nandi TV award winner and Nataka Rangastala "NTR Award 2001" holder.

The drama follows the felicitation function. It talks about Arjuna and Duryodhana reaching Dwaraka at the same time to ask for help from Krishna. But they find him taking rest, and wait. Krishna wakes up after some time, and sees Arjuna first (since he is seated at his feet) and Duryodhana next (since he is seated near the head of the bed).

When both of them tell him that they want his help, he asks them to choose either him, unarmed and passive, or his entire army. Duryodhana chooses Krishna's army to be on the side of the Kauravas, and Arjuna chooses Krishna to be on the side of the Pandavas. The later part of the drama talks about Krishna reaching Duryodhana's place with a peace proposal (rayabaram), the latter refusing it, and this leading to the famous war.
