Staging myth on the rocks

Staging myth on the rocks
The Lord was so pleased with Mahishasura’s devotion, that he blessed him with eternal life, declaring that no man, beast, demon or deity would ever be able to kill him.

Taking advantage of this boon he caused destruction and tried to take over Lord Indra’s throne. All the gods invoked lordess Durga to defeat Mahishasur. He lost the combat with Durga and she killed him to restore the balance of good and evil.

Retelling the same mythological story, a Kathak dance drama called Mahishasur Mardini, will be presented on the Capital stage. The show  curated by Asawri Pawar, will be inaugurated on Monday at ICCR.
