Aggravation time! Wife-whisking Ravana is in town. Catch some heady recital of the Ramayana, by Rama Murthy, this evening.
S Rama Murthy, who is an acclaimed vocalist, will recite the story of Ramayana in his own heart-warming style.
The program consists of Sanskrit slokas, set in rhythm, and will be sung on the notes of Sa, Dha and Ma. The keerthans of Thyagaraja, Annamayya and Tulsidas will be a part of the renditions.
The recital is based on the Ramayana, and it starts from the story, when Sita is forcefully taken to Lanka by Ravana. It is called Sundarakanda, and portrays the goodness of Sita advising Ravana to mend his ways, Hanuman warning Ravana of the consequences of his deeds, and Ravana's wife Mandodari advising him not to develop enmity with Rama.
On the other hand, Garuda informs Rama of Sita's kidnap, and Rama starts searching for her. During his search, he makes friends with Sugreeva. Sugreeva sends his vanara army, and ultimately Hanuman finds Sita. He comes back to Rama with the good news.
In this program, though the entire Ramayana will be narrated, the main focus will be on the Sundarakanda part. For this reason, this is called Sampoorna Sundarakanda Gaanam.
This will also include a narration of the Ramarajya after Rama gets his kingdon from Bharata. In Ramarajya, it rained thrice every month, there was no theft and no robbery, and women didn't become widows - they died before their husbands did, no premature deaths occurred, and cultivation boomed. The program comes to an end after showing all this.
