Karna Parvam – Kathakali

Karna Parvam – Grand Kathakali Performance
presented by
Bangalore Club for Kathakali and Arts, in association with Kairalee Kala Samithi.

The story of Karna Parvam (Part 2) will be presented by the popular troupe Sadanam (Gandhi Seva Sadan) .
The play is written and directed by Dr. Sadanam Harikumar.

Karna Parvam - Grand Kathakali Performance organized by Bangalore Club for Kathakali and Arts, in association with Kairalee Kala Samithi at Kairalee Nilayam, Vimanapura, Bengaluru.Bangalore Club for Kathakali & the Arts (BCKA) was formed 7 years back with the main purpose of reviving traditional arts from Kerala and Karnataka to the Bangalore audience. BCKA also promoted inter-state cultural event by presenting Yakshagana and Kathakali in Kerala and Bangalore.

The occasion will be graced by the presence of eminent personalities. Dr. K Radhakrishnan former chairman ISRO will be the chief guest for the evening.

The story line of Karna Parvam is from the famous epic Mahabharata. As Krishna is Arjuna’s charioteer, Karna insists and requests master-charioteer Salya to ride his battleground carriage. Karna invites Arjuna for a fight. Karna’s war-time challenge worries Krishna, who appoints Bhima’s son Ghatotkacha to confront Karna. The encounter prompts a helpless Karna to use no option other than his powerful lance. Ghatotkacha get killed and Vaijayanti goes back to the hands of its original owner, Indra. Krishna encourages Arjuna to fight Karna. What follows is a fierce fight, during which Karna’s chariot gets stuck in the mud. A curse Karna had received from Parashurama during his studies under the sage leaves him forgetful about the Brahmastra mantra. Karna does requests a break, but Krishna encourages Arjuna to kill Karna and he does it. Krishna requests Arjuna to return for the day. Krishna goes to Karna embraces him and removes the arrow from his heart thereby giving him salvation. The interesting story has a novel war-demonstration, based on the concept of Dwairatham. Krishna’s pure-dance passages revel in novel choreography though the essence of it is traditional.

The lead roles will be played by senior artists Dr. Sadanam K Harikumar (as Karna) and Sri. Sadanam Manikandan (as Arjuna). Other prominent artists are Sri Sadanam Sree Nathan (as Krishnan), Sri Sadanam Vignesh Harikumar (as Ghatolkachan), and Sri Sadanam Vipin Chandran as Shalyar.

A Friends Story – English Play

A Friends Story
English Play
by Akvarious Productions, Mumbai

Playwright: Vijay Tendulkar and Gowri Ramnarayan
Director: Akash Khurana

After 23 shows across 5 cities, and the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Award for best actress, Tendulkar’s controversial classic returns to Bangalore. Set in and around a college campus in Poona (now Pune) in the 1940s, A Friend’s Story is about three students – the diffident Bapu, the carefree Mitra, and the deceptive Nama. Based on events that took place around the middle of the last century, about a theme that many still consider taboo, the play that once expanded the horizons of Indian drama, stands out even today, as an avant-garde tour-de-force.

What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of cultivated ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape, people and appropriate technologies, providing food, shelter, energy and other material and non material needs in a sustainable way. Permaculture is a philosophy and an approach to land use which works with natural rhythms and patterns, weaving together the elements of microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, water and soil management, and human needs into intricately connected and productive communities. (Bill Mollison)
