About

The evening begins with an Invocation Abhinaya Vibhava followed by the recitals ‘Aham Bhumi’
and ‘Gopala Krishna’ , ending the show with ‘Bala Krishna’


1. Aham Bhoomi
This is a conversation between Bhudevi and Lord Vishnu, pleading with him to rescue her
from the Asura Hiranyaksha. When Bhudevi was abducted by Hiranyaksha, she
beseeches Lord Naryarana. She says
“You are called by the name KariRaja because you have rescued the Elephant king
Gajendra from the clutches of the crocodile.
You are also called the great Madhusudana because you killed the demons, Madhu-Kaitabha
in your manifestation as Lord Hayagriva. Why don’t you take pity and rescue me? I
surrender to you. Please rescue me!!!!
You are beautiful with dancing bells on your feet and bracelets on your wrists, You
assuage the fears of the learned brahmans and devatas, and You dispel all evil on the
earth with kindness. I surrender to you... Please rescue me.”
The lyrics for this piece have been taken from Vishnupuaranam and Krishna Leela
Tarangini.
Music composed by: Dr Rajkumar Bharati
Ragam: Ragamalika, Talam: Talamalika
Dance Choreographed by: Sri Avijit Das


2. Gopala Krishna
The protagonist Lord Krishna is surprised at the indifference of the pretty girl who has
caught his eye. While he is sought by so many Gopikas, he has his eyes set on this
special girl who has made his heart flutter. He tries to work his charms on her but she
shows no interest. She wastes all her time in front of the mirror decorating her already
pretty face but fails to come to him when he is close to her. Much to his chagrin, she turns
her attention to someone else. Krishna is filled with jealousy and even blows one of his
peacock feathers to her that the gentle breeze carries in her direction. It is easy enough
for her to catch the feather but she rather coldly lets it drop to the ground. Krishna’s pride
is crushed and he feels spurned by this extraordinary beauty. He laments and asks her
name wondering if she even knows who he is. I am the protector of the whole world and
that even includes you - he says. Does this move the girl? Let’s see

3. Bala Krishna
This piece is from the perspective of lord Krisna's father Nanda who is trying to make him
fall asleep in the absence of his mother Yashoda.
Nanda adorns Krishna with the yellow silk of Benaras and decorates him, he realizes that
something is missing from Krishna's decoration which is his flute, and by the time Nanda
tries to get the flute Krishna runs out.
Nanda says,
“O my little Krishna please come quickly and show me your beautiful face. With anklets in
the leg and blue gem studded bangles in the hand, Oh! coloured one, come dancing to
me. On the hips, you wear the belt with bells, rings on your fingers and the garland of
Vaijayanthi on your neck, please come.
You who showed the universe in your mouth to your mother, Oh God who carried the
earth, Oh Our God Udupi Sri Krishna”

Krishna Nee Begane Baro
