YAKSHAGANA AT BANGALORE


It was through the daily newspaper came to know that there will be felicitations to the famous NEBBURU NARAYANA HEGGADE (Bhagavatar) at ADA Kalamandira, Bangalore.
We reached there at 4.30 p.m. and searched for the place and found it opposite to Ravindra Kalakshetra.....
Seminar (Ghosti) was going on with people talking high about Nebburu...... Critic Umakanth Bhat notably special.....The famous Bhagavatar in the profession for last 50years and was very creative singer, artist.....
He was honoured with Rs 1 lakh cash and memento, shawl etc......
At 7.30p.m....... Yakshagana started with KAARTHI VEERYA as the story...... with heavy costume, dance,  story telling and acting, with entertainment from the HAASYAGAARA character...... as the story from Ramayana goes....... Kaarthi Veerya born with no arms..... and with great tapass..... acquires 1000 arms and becomes very strong....... and defeats proud Ravaneshwara and keeps him in prison for a long time.......
Good performance...... just for two hours...... good singing..... people were from IDAGUNJI YAKSHAGANA MELA...... back home by 10 pm......
