Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra, attempts to organise shows that hold immense importance in the Indian history.

The endeavour of these spectacles has always been to imbibe Indian traditions and values such that their relevance is deemed relatable in modern times. Like the various chapters in Indian mythology, the chapter on Lord Krishna is also weaved in with an array of tales, beliefs, myths and magic, but it has always been revered as much practical, imparting knowledge in every day to day activity. Every year, the organisers ensure newness and dynamism to annual plays through vibrant choreography, advanced technology, ornate costume designs and elaborate sets of international standards. This time, they have used an LED wall to add a life-like experience to the show. Besides, there is a new sound track. While keeping the soul of the show same, its treatment changes every year, making it completely different from previous years.
