Dance-drama ‘KaalMrigaya’ at Nat’l Museum today

Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre, High Commission of India, Dhaka is organising a musical dance-drama titled ‘KaalMrigaya’, by an Indian troupe led by Mahua Mukherjee and Subhadip Chakraborty, today at the Main Auditorium of Bangladesh National Museum (BNM) in the capital.

‘KalMrigaya’ or ‘The Fatal Hunt’ is written by Nobel Laureate Poet Rabindranath Tagore. The dance drama ‘KalMrigaya’ is based on a story from the epic ‘Ramayana’ where Dasharatha, the valiant King and an archer of repute were on a hunting spree with his band of kinsmen. One blind Sage Rishi feels thirsty and asks his young son (Rishi Kumar) to bring him water. But a sudden clap of thunder changes his mind. Rishi Kumar tells his father not to worry. The river is only a short distance away, and he will return soon. In the flashing violence of the monsoon and darkest distress of the creatures, Rishi Kumar is lost.

The remorseful Dasharath enters bearing the body of Rishi Kumar. He breaks the news to the Sage that he had unwittingly killed his son.

Devastated, the Sage curses the King and even though Dasharath begs for Sage’s forgiveness, which the Sage gives him at last, the curse lives on in the Ramayana.

Entry is free for all on a first-come, first served basis.

Where: Nat’l Museum, Shahbag

When: 6:30pm, today
