The play is an interpretation of the birth stories related to the myths of Ganapati (the elephant-headed god from the Puranic cycle) / Martanda from the Vedic cycle. It is structured in a recurring cycle of creation, celebration, destruction, and return, which parallel's the motif in these birth stories. The return is suggested by a re-telling of the myth repeatedly and from different points of view.
The aim is to allow its main concern, that of creations and creativity, to be interpreted at a variety of different levels. The performance suggests its concerns largely through different patterns and textures of rhythms. The verbal text is minimal. And both the verbal text and the aural images are supported by visual cues and images. The rhythms used in this piece have been evolved from the rhythms of Koodiyattam music and folk rhythms from various parts of South Asia.
