Description

In this unprecedented production, the inspired brushstrokes of award-winning artists B. G. Sharma and Mahaveer Swami elegantly complement Krishna Dharma’s dramatic retelling of stories from India’s ancient epics. Adapted from ancient sanskrit texts, these stories comprise the literary heart of Hinduism, wherein divinity assumes innumerable forms. Among these the portrayal of the Goddess is perhaps the most alluring. In just a few of her manifestations, she appears as a devoted wife, a master of the arts, a terrifying demon slayer, a scornful critic, a doting mother and a crafty lover stealing off into the night. The Vedic tradition views the beauty, power and grace of the Goddess as one with God, reflecting the universal truth that male and female are but different expressions of one supreme, absolute truth.
