Saligrama Makkala Mela Team

78 year old Shri Sridhar Hande, Director of Makkala Yakshagana Mela, from Saligrama, along with two of elderly colleagues, attended the workshop as resource people to teach Yakshagana to school children. It was amazing to see the dedication and love for the art, at that age, ignoring the constraints and discomfort of staying in the school classroom and teaching the children, in the fourth floor of the school building.

However, there was show of Yakshagana Prasanga "VEERA VRASHASHENA" by the students of Saligrama makkala Mela on Sunday, 20th Jan 2013, in the hall crowded with children and few teachers and general public.


Sri Sujayeendra Hande, multi-talented yakshagana artist, (son of Sridhar Hande) explained the Navarasa, with presentation by a mature artist. They are Shringar (Erotic -delight), Hasya (Humorous- laughter), Karuna (Pathetic- sorrow), Roudra(Terrible -anger),  Veera (Heroic - heroism), Bhayanaka (Fearful - fear), Bibatsa (Odious -disgust), Adbutha (Wonderous- wonder), Shantha (Peaceful - peace)

The YAKSHAGANA presented by students of Saligrama Makkala Mela was excellent.
