With this as a story germ, the MA-Part II students of Kathak at Lalit Kala Kendra (Gurukul), Savitribai Phule Pune University, put up a dance programme titled, Manthan Krushna Kinara — Tya Tighi...on Sunday.

In Aruna Dhere’s Krushna Kinara, she writes about three women in the life of Krishna: Radha, Kunti and Draupadi. The story is about their womanhood and their relationship with him. 

With this as a story germ, the MA-Part II students of Kathak at Lalit Kala Kendra (Gurukul), Savitribai Phule Pune University, put up a dance programme titled, Manthan Krushna Kinara — Tya Tighi...on Sunday.  

Mrunmayi Kulkarni, who directed the programme, said, “Every character that has been portrayed in Mahabharata has been in some way or the other influenced or affected by Krishna. Krushna Kinara tells us a story of three female protagonists of Mahabharata — Radha, Draupadi and Kunti. A lover, a wife/daughter-in-law and a mother. Their roles are so important,  they changed the fates of people involved. The story takes us through a journey, experienced by these women, opening secrets locked deep within their hearts.”

Kulkarni, who is a student of Pt Maneesha Sathe, adds, “Krushna Kinara is set at some point of the time after the war. Krishna is old, tired, and facing his demons, wondering what might have happened to the people he took for granted.” 

Kathak students at the Lalit Kala Kendra, Utkarsha Dagade, Anusha Chandak, Bhakti Zalki, Sharvari Bhide, Aishwarya Sane and Trushali Kadam, were also a part of the dance recital.
