Maana Bhanjan – a Traditional Raas Leela in Odissi Style releasing on 3rd May 2020


Maana Bhanjan, a traditional Raas Leela in Odissi style will be releasing on 3 May 2020 at 10 PM. Check out the official youtube handle of Padmashri Ileana Citaristi.

A traditional Odissi dance-drama based on the original script by Babaji Vaishnava Charan Das and Mohan Sunder Dev Goswami. It is the story of the offended Radha, seductive Chandrabali, and repentant Krishna, who undergoes different disguises in order to win back Radha’s trust; a classic belonging to the preliminary stage of the Odissi revival.

Behind the dramatic plot, which has elements of pathos as well as comic overtures, lies the philosophy of total surrender and final merging of the individuals into the universal soul, propagated by the Vaishnav faith.

Love, humor, suspense, romance in the eternal story of Radha’s longing for her divine lover Krishna.
