Natyakala Bhattima. [Laudation towards the theatrical art.] Madhavdeva reverendly expressed about Shankardeva evaluating him with Krishna (Hari, the saviour of mankind) who wiped out Kansha with regard to peace and harmony. It’s Hari who’s worshiped in three galaxies due to His redemptional activities of virtuous persons from unjustice and cruality. The planet and it is pious occupants were reedemed through the Deva Narayana [Hari/ Krishna] in the jaws of problems and attrocities whenever the conditions arosed. Shankardeva transported exactly the same qualities with Him. Since it was Shankardeva who demonstrated us the road of rightiousness through his theatrical expressions and trained us the clear way of prostration towards the culture of Krishna (the killer of Kansha. Duskriti). We’ve got some elaborations concerning the unique amenability of theatrical art within the Natya Sastra of Bharat Muni. From many verses of Natya Sastra probably the most encouraging verse could be mentioned here –
Theater is really an talent which is capable of doing leading individuals socio-political cultural and religious aspects and carries the effectiveness of showing right pathways of aspects for the advantage of future decades.
Srimanta Shankardeva utilized the most abilities of the talent to satishfy his intense interest on all-powerful omniscient beauty and established his theater inside a reverend position for good. No beauty could be accomplished or utilized if it’s not understood and materialised through proper artistic way. In a variety of expressions of progessive appearance it’s broadly described the beauty that is not capable of getting used for the advantage of people compared to concerned beauty will be recognized as ephemeral and heinously corrosive. Shankardeva`s enthusiasm for all-powerful omnicient beauty empowered the entire social phenomena to achieve the preferred objective of salvation through endowment of beauty in each and every facets of existence and society. It had been performed through his literary, theatrical and musical confluence which may be expressed as Tribeni Sangam of practical beauty. He designed his theater in a way where all audiences of his theater regardless of rustic villagers , sagacious persons and scholers got inspiration to become obsequious for guy and it is Maker.
It had been a strategy of Shankardeva within the medieval duration of Assam, but exactly how much the current theater employees understand the subject and accountable for the avocation and benevolence of the esteemed audienceses ought to be measured without fail. Since it is indispensable for that progression of theatrical art.
Natyaveda talks concerning the essence and amenability of theatrical art and however the salutation of Madhavdeva to his master Shankardeva shows us the way the apostle of theatrical art becomes dignified like a curtain raiser of salvation through truth and peace and tenacious beauty.
Religion couldn’t be separated in the stream of existence, since it carries the force of existence which we generally identify as sprituality and also the ultimate road to tenacious beauty. Shankardeva believed existence with respect to the strength of sprituality by which people get inspiration to decore their existence in socio-political, economical and cultural spheres with minimum demand for lunatic comfort regardless of religious diversity for example Hindu, Islam, Christrian, Zorastrian etc. The theatrical expressions of Shankardeva says the creative beauty might be requested the homogeneous development of human society and it is related factors with the Krishna culture and it is ambiguity. Krishna may be the indication of culture, the innermost truth of reality which may be adopted as Krishna, Allah, God and so forth. The pathways of following Krishna culture is differed from religion to religion however the outcomes of following a same includes the people in an endless journey of fraternity, peace and wealth that leads us to salvation.
Shankardeva designed his theater having a view to emancipate people with the perfection of existence and reality. Within the light of contemporary ideas and ideas the Shankarian theatrical exppressions are treated as booring and outdated for any type of so known as progressive people. However the trend of theater that has been prospered and nourished by them within the title of modernity brings no vitality except the rise of hedonistic affinity. Your time and effort of revealing the truth and also the amenebility of Shankarian theatrical art with regard to people is invaluable since the sturdiness of passionate feelings of humanity should be expected through Krishna culture that the saint respected through his theater (Natyakala ).
The research into the subject mentioned above demands an in-depth understanding and focus that is vacate within me. Due to intense urge from the subject a strategy has been created by me to create being an outline from the subject concerned. This book is nothng but hint of Shankarian theater by which it’s expected the competant person of the area will come up with broad discussion for that greater interest of Assamese theatrical heritage and it is present and potential customers.
