Mokshada

March 4, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:40 pm

NPR300

‘Mokshada’ is a danceplay based on the life experiences of (Panchakanya) five virgins which is mentioned in the ‘Shastra’ (holy scriptures). (Panchakanya) five virgins means Ahilya, Draupadi, Kunti, Tara and Mandodari. All these five women are married but even after having physical contact with more than one man, they are called pure. According to ‘Shastra’ (holy scriptures), even taking their names will eliminate all the sins and lead  to the way of salvation. ‘Mokshada’ is the disagreement of the characterization of these five women done in ‘Shastra’ (holy scriptures). This danceplay can be claimed as the voice of today’s women’s struggle to find their existence or can be the unheard voice of these five protagonists and their rights.
