Event Description

Gangavatharana is inspired by the poems of D.R.Bendre, known by his pen name “Ambikatanayadatta”. Known for the lyrical rhythm and beauty, his poems are one of the most popular works of Kannada literature. Influenced by vedic literature and aurobindo, his poems are often philosophical in nature, yet, in a very simple manner. The play chronicles many famous anecdotes and incidents from Bendre’s life, parallel with the story of a literature researcher devoted to Bendre’s life and work. The play raises serious questions about human potential and his ability to rise above his misery. The play, known for its colorful dance sequences and soulful rendition of Bendre’s poems, is widely acclaimed as one of the breakthrough plays of the recent past
